Uptown Unplugged – Dougie Greig
June 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Scottish singer songwriter Dougie Greig blends soaring melodies with heartbreaking lyrics to tell stories of love, loss, and a belief that no matter what, there is still some good in the world.
From humble beginnings he began songwriting at a young age before touring with rock bands across the UK, culminating in a tour as the vocalist for Dave ‘Bucket’ Colwell of ‘Bad Co.’ fame. Dougie’s debut album “Black Water Son” was self recorded and raw, a young man finding his feet and returning to his roots as one man, a guitar and lyrics that show a maturity beyond his years. In search of new inspiration Dougie has traversed the globe and landed in Vancouver, Canada where he is quickly making a name for himself as a powerful, and heartfelt songwriter. His latest video for his instant classic “Brave” is a stark reminder that in the world we live in today, regardless of what fear you may have, you must always be Brave, and stand up to the challenges that may befall you. Dougie is currently recording “Brave” and plans to release the single near the summer.
