Vermont Singer-Songwriter Gregory Douglass
And now for something completely different. PBN strives to present a variety of music, and is thrilled to bring in an artist who transcends genres - one who gives to listeners, and invites them all in with his powerful messages and haunting melodies. Gregory Douglass is an exceptional musician of our time who explores and demonstrates the human condition through his immense ability to communicate with notes, rhythms, and voice, leaving few emotional stones unturned.
Piano by Nature is looking forward to the talent and artistry that Gregory Douglass will bring to our stage as an internationally renowned independent musician with eight critically acclaimed albums and a multitude of digital singles & music videos. His recent spotlight on NPR Morning Edition has coined him "one of New England's best-kept secrets." Douglass has sold over 75,000 songs digitally on his own and his videos have amounted to over 600,000 views on YouTube alone. Douglass has been compared to artists like Tori Amos, Jeff Buckley, Patty Griffin and Rufus Wainwright. His evocative, alternative sound "channels everyone from Stevie Wonder to Fiona Apple in a way that's terrifyingly mature for someone so young" according to Instinct Magazine. Douglass has shared the stage with artists like They Might Be Giants, Shawn Colvin, The Weepies, Jason Mraz, Regina Spektor, and Margaret Cho. He is currently touring in support of his latest release, LUCID, a dream-themed concept album, and ode to Kate Bush.
Here is a video of his beautiful song called "Point of View"- and YES- that is Jane Boxall playing marimba! https://youtu.be/TzG_jO9xRJw
