ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Back after a nearly 10 year hiatus Diesel Doug and the Long haul Truckers Hard charging Portland, Maine Pioneers in the Americana movement.

From 1995 to 2005 Diesel Doug was a beloved Portland Based band. They released 3 critically acclaimed albums over their 10 year run; “An Angel Not a Saint” (1997) “The Fine Art of Carousing” (1999) and in 2005 “Mistakes were Made” a retrospective compilation of unreleased tracks, live cuts and fan favorites.

They toured the East coast and Eastern Canada extensively developing a solid and fervent fan base. And they shared the stage over the years with many of the great country and roots acts of the era including Wayne Hancock, Fred Eaglesmith, Dwight Yoakam and the legend, Willie Nelson.

In 2005 the group disbanded to pursue other interests. Scott Link the lead singer and principal song writer released a well received solo record “Coming Around” in 2007 and the seeds for the new line up of Diesel Doug &TLHT were sewn there. “After close to 10 years I still have people asking me about a Diesel Doug comeback.” says Link, “For several years I had little interest and wasn’t really even playing much at all. But over time as a performer you realize that you need to be performing. I had talked to the guys at different points about a reunion but that didn’t work out.”

Replacing the original Truckers, Charley Gaylord (guitar) Scott Conley (Bass) and Jon Davison (Drums) was no easy task but the new line up features some heavy hitters from the Maine music scene. Matt Robbins from King Memphis and Murcielago on Guitar, Erik Glockler from Strangefolk on Bass and Ginger Cote who has toured with Emmy Lou Harris and Lucinda Williams on Drums.

The new single “Bring Me Some Whiskey” cements the bands fresh style. Rooted in classic country but with a unique approach.
