I will be releasing a new album titled Deep Heart in early 2018!

Here’s a recap of my activities in 2017:

I created another exclusive session in January for Mark Whitby at Dandelion Radio.  Two songs from the session have been completely reworked, and the new versions will appear on the new album.  The session is now available as a name-your-price download on bandcamp here: 
Marked Map: A Dandelion Radio Session.

Two tracks from my 2016 Album, Ghost in the Museum were remixed by Steve Kelly (under two of his many aliases):
I Am The Sweeper (Macerator Remix)
Ten Days (Douglas Deep Remix)

I contributed a new song, “He Lights Up” to a compilation titled Winter Solsticereleased by Vanguardista Records of Manchester, England. You can get it free on bandcamp here: He Lights Up.

I continue to get my best support from radio outside the US: In the UK, Germany and Canada. I prefer listening to these overseas stations because they play more varied genres and new music. They’re more interesting than most US stations.

I continue to collaborate with Paul Kent of Brighton, England on our project Kloba Kent.  Our song “Fools Make Walls” even made it into Dandelion Radio’s Festive 50 at number 28, making my third appearance in this listener poll!  You can get both Kloba Kent EPs on bandcamp here:
Naked in the Storm
That Road

Latest Release:

Ghost In The Museum was  released January 26, 2016.

POST-PUNK, AVANT-POP, UNTAMED-ELECTRO SONG POEMS.

This album is a multi layered rich collection of songs using guitars, synthesizer and drums as the main back drop for poems with hidden dual meanings amidst haunting sonic atmosphere.

The album focuses on the spirit seemingly left behind in an artist’s chosen medium, be it painting, sculpting or music. The musical elements extend down to the center of the earth while vocals sweep you way back up to the North pole. Layers of bass are enhanced with melody creating dimension and space with large picturesque landscapes of sound. Instruments come in and out giving depth and variety to these short song/poems.
