Congratulations to Doug MacLeod on his 2017 Acoustic Artist Blues Music Award! July 7th will mark the release of his next recording with Reference Recordings, Break The Chain, in which Doug continues to explore the breadth and depth of the human condition. Each of the twelve new original songs is extremely personal and at the same time, universal; covering subjects topical, humorous, and soulful; from the satirical to the sublime. Break The Chain will be released on compact disc with HDCD, as high-resolution and conventional downloads and later, as a premium 2-LP set.
The title work, Break The Chain, composed and performed with his son Jesse, focuses on breaking the cycle of family violence and abuse. A powerful concern all too many are familiar with, Doug and Jesse confront this pervasive issue directly and personally, bringing it out of the shadows. Together, they share the healing, reconciliation and peace available to all who work to prevent the cycle from repeating and to “Break The Chain”. Pre-order the album today!
Also during the Blues Foundation event, Doug MacLeod and Fiona Boyes were able to record new Blues Radio International sets, to be published soon! Photos below:
