LONG BIO

Originally from the mountains of west Texas, Doug Moreland settled down in Austin at the turn of the millennium as a fiddler, songwriter, and woodcarver! Being the eldest son of a colorful wainwright, blacksmith, and fiddle-playing ranch hand, Doug eagerly left his nest in Fort Davis TX in 1992 in pursuit of a musical degree, setting the stage for a short stint as a fiddler and funny sideman for dinner theater entertainment in Ruidoso NM. He then set out to tour the country with various acts, living in Phoenix AZ, Dallas TX, and Nashville TN, eventually settling back in Texas in 1999 to write his own songs and front his own band. But instead of the band, he found it much easier to keep up with only his singing sidekick Holly (or Holly-peño, a black and white McNab/Border Collie dog). This solo, comical music performance, with the dog as his finale, overshadowed his songwriting abilities and garnered him little respect on the Texas music scene, so in 2003 Doug based himself in Austin TX and put that full band together, gradually developing it into a unique, western, swing band with his wit and charm playing along with the instrumentation of twin fiddles, mandolin, and the upright bass fiddle.

And amidst his meanderings, Doug discovered a financial & promotional spur for his musical career through chainsaw carving! He picked up the saw in 1998, and sold his first piece the moment he finished carving it! Self-taught, with a bit of background whittling small pieces as a child alongside his father, Doug advanced quickly with a keen grasp of proportion and a remarkable knack for caricature. And like his music, Doug has customized his art to his own unique fashion.
