a stone killer... devastating in every way”

"The Jewel Tones are absolutely one of the tightest acts on the circuit, and Deming, an impressive musician in his Detroit days, is better than ever in every department- songwriting, singing, and guitar playing. The excellent Complicated Mess should appear on every list of the best albums of 2018." - Tom Hyslop, BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE

DOUG ENDORSES D'ANGELICO GUITARS

Doug is beyond proud and excited to announce his endorsement of D'Angelico Guitars! Since 1932, the D'Angelico name has been synonymous with exquisite craftsmanship, rich tone and classic beauty. While touring France in 2016, Doug was approached by D'Angelico to endorse them, and he's thrilled to join the long list of notable musicians who play and represent these beautiful instruments. Doug sends his heartfelt thanks to Vincent Daleux and all the fine folks at D'Angelico Guitars, and looks forward to performing, recording and touring with his gorgeous new D'Angelico Excel archtop!

"The great musicians who bridged the gap between Blues and Jazz and Jump and Swing had unique musical identities, sounds and personalities and they allowed their personal fingerprint on everything they had. People like Charlie Parker, Illinois Jacquet, Lionel Hampton, Charlie Christian had unique sounds and played with energy and vigor. Modern players like Duke Robillard, Doug Deming and Joey DeFrancesco continue that process. It’s about tunes and swing, but it’s also about personalities and telling a story when you play music."   -"Little Charlie" Baty
