Newest Music Biography
Singer/songwriter Douglas Greer showcases a brand of original roots-rock music heavy on storytelling and wrapped in electric guitar- and keyboard-infused melodies reminiscent of seventies-era country and rock. Formerly based out of Austin, Texas, Greer recently relocated back home to the Beaumont/Port Arthur area. Greer and his full band have played shows at major venues in Austin including Antone’s, the Saxon Pub, Momo’s and Jovita’s. As an acoustic performer, using a style that mixes equal parts red dirt country, rock and bluegrass, Greer has played in markets ranging from Austin, Luckenbach, Houston, Galveston, Fort Worth, Nashville, the Southeast Texas area, and Amsterdam, Holland.

Greer promotes his music most heavily to the Western Europe and Eastern Australia markets. Over ninety percent of Greer’s music sales have been in overseas markets. His 2006 debut album, “Just a Man,” has been sold in thirteen countries on four continents. The album reached the Number One spot on the Euro Americana Chart, the Americana music chart in Europe, as well as the Number Two spot on the same chart the following month, where it topped Bob Dylan’s “Modern Times,” which debuted at Number Three. It also reached the Number Thirteen spot in America on the Freeform American Roots Chart.
Douglas Greer and “Just a Man” earned significant critical acclaim and radio airplay in Holland, Belgium, Spain, France and Germany, and made several year-end lists in the European Americana music community, including Number One Male Artist (Johanna Bodde, Alt Country Cooking), Number Two Male Artist (Jos van den Boom, Crossroads Radio), Best Debut Album (Jos van Den Boom, Crossroads Radio), and Album of the Year (Francois Braeken, Rootstime Magazine), as well as being named Album of the Month on the seminal radio program, “Americana OK,” on Leith FM Radio in Edinburgh, Scotland.

He has taken two radio tours of Holland, including guest artist appearances on Crossroads Radio, Country File Radioshow, and several other programs, and was a featured performer on the acclaimed world music cultural program, “Cultureel Podium Roepaen.”

About Douglas Greer’s Americana Happy Hour

“This channel contains videos of songs from his album, “Baja Louisiana” and his debut album, “Just A Man,” as well as original music from his family along with some of his favorite Americana videos. Yee-haw!

Excepts from some reviews:
“[Just a Man] is a classic example of how, in our opinion, Americana is supposed to sound. Greer is a master of telling stories and drawing character sketches.” – Benny Metten, Ctrl Alt Country Magazine

“[Just a Man] is a real beauty; alternative Southeast Texas country rock molded into ten great songs that create the same atmosphere for which musicians such as Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, James McMurtry and Joe Ely are famous.” – Francois Braeken, Rootstime Magazine
