On a Roll-EP
Doug Krause has been a professional musician and composer for over twenty years. His unique writing and performing style comes from years spent moving between the pop/rock, blues, and country genres. This varied experience has helped him to blend these styles into a personal, musical voice. A small town boy from the plains of Kansas, he had a natural affinity for the music of the heartland but quickly discovered that the blues and southern rock suited his piano and singing style perfectly. His tunes groove with plenty of energy and excitement and a smooth, classic rhythm and blues vocal delivery that is never edgy but always intense. Doug is not a slave to musical trends, though he is not opposed to being influenced by them. His primary interest with his music is to say what he wants to say when he feels like saying it. This eclectic and independent spirit is evident in Doug's music. Besides being a professional performer, Doug has also been a producer, studio musician, composer, songwriter, and teacher. He has recorded in studios in Los Angeles, Denver, St. Louis, and Wichita and presently lives and teaches in Denver where his understanding of different musical styles keeps him in demand as a sideman and studio musician when he's not busy promoting his own projects. Colorado is the perfect place for him to pursue a career, raise a family, and be close to the wide-open spaces he loves so well.
