Peaceful Currents Radio is pleased to welcome our first Featured Artist, guitarist Doug Adamz.  A singer/songwriter that hails from El Paso, Texas, Doug currently lives in the “outback” of Marin County, California (north of San Francisco). He is a dazzling guitar player, a souful singer, and an outrageous harmonica player.  Some of his songs are engaging stories, some are reflective and philosophical, sometimes he just gets down with the blues.

Doug has recorded several albums that feature both his instrumental songwriting prowess.  For Peaceful Currents Radio, I have chosen his 2011 album, Guitar Solos as the featured album this month.  Here you experience the essence of Doug’s musical roots without words.  Influences from both Texas and California, as well as his musical journey are clear in these songs.  The instrumentation is crisp to the point that, if you listen carefully, you can almost hear the words of his stories emanating from it’s strings. I am pleased to welcome Doug Adamz to Peaceful Currents Radio.
