Douglas Dare

(United Kingdom)


Douglas Dare is a London-based singer-songwriter, originally from the coastal town of Bridport, South West England.

His live sound combines acoustic instrumentation including piano and percussion with glitchy electronic elements. Inspired by the likes of Portishead, Elliot Smith and James Blake, Douglas combines a rich and haunting vocal with lyrics crafted from his own poems and short prose.

Early reviews of his debut album champion it’s originality with The Quietus quoted as saying, “it’s bittersweet, raw and honest…” and The Guardian calling it, ‘distinctive and strikingly new.’.
