Kitchener's Craig Dougan is Loud and Proud on Latest CD!


Still Rising, the 3rd album from Kitchener's Craig Dougan is definitely loud and proud! Within its hard rock shell lies a heart packed with boogie woogie. It has a little something for everyone!

Its straight-ahead rock feel is injected with lots of melody and groove. There are also moments of garage rock, soul, funkiness and more. Turn it to 11 and get ready to shake your ass!

Craig (who does vocals, guitar and bass) is joined by Wayne Bond and Rob Taylor (drums) as well as lead guitarist Paul Woods. They all do a bang-up job.

You can pick up the CD at any of his amazing live shows.  It's also available through cdbaby and iTunes.

From their website: The Stephen Lewis Foundation launched the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign in March 2006, in response to the emerging crisis faced by African grandmothers as they struggled to care for millions of children orphaned by AIDS. The Campaign aims to raise awareness, build solidarity and mobilize support in Canada for Africa’s grandmothers.

The Hamilton Blues Lovers (HBL) want to showcase a deserving local charity every week.  HBL is not affiliated with these charities nor does it fund raise for them.
