About Douglas Haines, Award-winning Americana, Folk singer & songwriter
#1 National Independent Americana Artist
An award-winning Americana/Folk singer/songwriter, Douglas Haines blends acoustic guitar melodies with a poet’s gift for capturing a story in lyric form, entertaining audiences for more than 30 years. Music is an expression of his deepest thoughts and feelings as he blends his emotion-filled lyrics with intricate fingerstyle picking. Influenced by legends such as John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and James Taylor, Douglas released his first solo album, I Can’t Change, in 2017. The Haines Bros. Band, of which Douglas was a founding member, also has an album released, Friday’s Highway.
Inspired by watching his older brother’s band, Douglas bought his first guitar at age 18. His goal was to do what his brother did, only better! The songs "Gotta Get a Message to You" and "Words" by the Bee Gee’s, first inspired Douglas to play, write and sing.
