On Promenade

by Doug Burr

There's twinges of the regulars in it: Wilco, Young, Oldham, and maybe some hints of Jurado, Swift, or Bazan, though Doug's music is clearly his own. Subtle yet commanding, and it actually feels meaningful.

Album Notes
We are thrilled to announce that we will be releasing a full length record for the amazing songwriter Doug Burr. "On Promenade" is 11 tracks beautifully soaked in sincerity, heartache, and love. We are also happy to announce this will be a co-release with our good friends at Spune Productions. Some of you maybe familiar with Spune as they put on the amazing Wall of Sound Festival (low, new year, david bazan, lassie foundation, okkervil river, the czars, etc)
Doug Burr's flavor of backwoods roots and smart pop hooks has been described as conjuring Lucinda Williams on a revival high. After years of wood-shedding his songwriting, Burr emerged from his bedroom, the coffee houses, and open mics to begin playing out at bars and clubs in his home state of Texas. He's been quietly winning people over, getting nice press, and getting material recorded.

His new record will be out this summer. There's twinges of the regulars in it : Wilco, Young, Oldham, and maybe some hints of Jurado, Swift,or Bazan, though Doug's music is clearly his own. Subtle yet commanding, and it actually feels meaningful. Finding a truly special record is like finding a needle in a hay stack these days, so consider "On Promenade" the best the needle you ever found !

"Doug Burr delivers enough heartbreak to drive you to the edge of the bridge, and just enough hope to keep you from jumping. Rugged and pristine, this is music that gets under your skin and goes straight for the heart like a shot of morphine." - Real Roots Cafe Holland

"Doug sings with sound and fury, like he was layin' down and dyin', like he would never sing again." -

"Burr is a fine writer who thinks about things; whether or not we agree with his fervid Gospel of promised light in a dark world, his music moves."
- Buddy Magazine



to write a review


This CD worth lending an ear (or two) to!
Hard to say which is my fave. It's beautiful music. Love the tune about Van Gogh lending an ear (Should've Known) and the rockin' beats on In The Garden. Though I do also like the choo-choo sound of Graniteville. Hey, I'm no music critic - I listen to what I like and this CD is amazing, beautiful and worth having in any CD collection :)


Sublime, quality disc
I bought this without hearing a single tune as I had Doug's previous release which showed promise plus I had seen this album in a few folks End of Year lists. This is a gorgeous record with not a dud track on it. From the rockin' "In the Garden" to the sublime "How Can the Lark (My Dear Theo)" all tracks are hallmarked with quality. One of my best buys from CD Baby.

A fellow Dallasite, I have gotten to hear Doug in person and I love his music! It is certainly music that makes one think. Blood Runs Downhill is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard by any artist.

The CD is wonderful. I love music and enjoy discovering new artists and new music. I spend a lot of time in this persuit. This CD is good from start to finish. Frankly, I could not find this CD anywhere else but at CD Baby.
