Douglas cut his teeth in the music industry in the 1980s by playing keyboards and writing for indie bands as a teenager. He developed skills as an arranger and programmer, and in his early twenties began taking over the helm of recording projects. He produced recordings at Phase One Studies, Metalworks, Grant Avenue Studio, and Sounds Interchange.
Doug’s greatest talent lies in magnifying artists’ performances, delivering the very best representation for each artist. His passion for songwriting is equaled by his love for sonic landscapes, and he works tirelessly to integrate lyrics, arrangement, and setting. Douglas is known for his musicality, his clear and amiable leadership style, his strong communication skills and his dry sense of humour. He lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his wife and two daughters.
