BRAND NEW EYES
with Blues Master
MacLeod has been a beacon of unquestionably honest roots-music since the 1970s. On Brand New Eyes, he presents 11 original songs. He is the rare artist who writes and sings songs that are based on his own life and experiences. A 2011 Blues Music Award nominee and an American troubadour. Glenn Nishida at Pacifica Studios was the recording engineer, and our own Keith Johnson did the final mastering. Keith states it has very good sonics and sends it out with his blessing! Doug’s music and recordings are beloved by blues fans and by audiophiles alike (he had several hits in past years on the Audioquest label) and we are proud to present Brand New Eyes to you!
