Doug Krause: Piano and Vocals
Doug Krause has been a professional musician and composer for over twenty-five years. His characteristic writing and performing style comes from years spent moving between the pop/rock, blues, and country genres as well as classical music. A small town boy from the plains of Kansas, he had a natural affinity for the music of the heartland but quickly discovered that the blues and southern rock suited his piano and singing style perfectly. His influences include Little Feat, Bruce Hornsby, The Band, and Dr. John. Doug is a professor at the University of Colorado Denver  in the Music and Entertainment Industry Studies department. He also owns and operates a publishing company Denver Basin Music (www.denverbasinmusic.com) and a production company Full Measure Productions (www.fullmeasureproductions.net). (return to top)
