Doug Cash – Singer Songwriter
Doug Cash’s “Singer Songwriter” is a tasteful, timeless effort. Following in the proud tradition of the great 1970s singer songwriters like John Lennon, the songs are simple and effective. With “Singer Songwriter” Doug Cash keeps his songs to the absolute essentials by employing meticulous clean guitar work. By far the heart and soul of the album comes from Doug Cash’s highly articulate, almost poetic lyricism. This, once coupled with his versatile singing voice, results in a deeply moving piece of work. Stylistically, Doug Cash’s work ranges from the whispered acoustic to the anthemic electric guitar led choruses. Tying this all together are his arrangements, kept to the essentials with bright beautiful colors.
Beginning things on an intimate note is the tender work of “Locust”. Following this is the crystal clarity of “Sacramento” where Doug Cash shows off his nimble guitar work. Passionate in nature is the pleading “Emotional Treason”. Introducing a fuller sound is the big band approach of “Beyond V3” whose infectious melody and inviting lyrics make it one of the album highlights. Downright gorgeous is the heartfelt “With a Thrill” where Doug Cash’s vocals are quite strong. Easily the highlight of the album is the dreamy work of “Loneliest With You”. Akin to Jon Brion’s clever approach to song craft the song is simply stunning. Ending things on a contemplative note is the hushed tone of “You Wept for Yourself”.
“Singer Songwriter” presents a welcoming world courtesy of Doug Cash’s unique musical vision.
