“What first caught my attention about Doug was his acoustic guitar playing... a clear, refined, finger picking style that pays attention to detail... then the well crafted songs with lyrics from a poet's heart... and finally that honeyed voice, with touches of the travelers weariness and hard earned wisdom.”
- Refuge Entertainment

Music that will stick in your head - as well as your heart.
Doug Alan Wilcox crafts a sound from what the Franklin Arts Center in Virginia calls “bluegrass and blues” with an unpretentious stage presence creating a musical vibe all his own - laid-back and intimate.
Sad songs with a hopeful message, happy songs for the joy of it, unapologetically DAW.
Over the years, Wilcox has provided support for or shared a stage with a diverse cross-section of musical talent including Peter Mayer, Tom Prasado-Rao, Jen Chapin, L.J. Booth, Stacey Earle, Pierce Pettis, and Peter Case.

"Doug Alan Wilcox has the soul of a poet and the songs to prove it. He immediately became a favorite guest on the Acoustic Highway.”
- Barry Graham, Folk music producer / WHRV FM

”…Instrumental prowess at its finest. Lyrics that matter.”
- Ron Goad, D.C. area musician and impresario
