I am a lyric writer only, so I'm looking for collaborations. This year, 2022, will be my sixth 50/90 and I've also done six FAWMs. They're always super rewarding experiences. The talent and camaraderie here are incredibly inspiring. If you like to collaborate with lyric writers, please know that I work really hard to make my lyrics easy to sing. There might be an exception or two, when I go overboard with the verbiage, but I swear I'm trying to practice self-restraint.

My wife and I have been living overseas for the last 13 years -- Thailand, Slovakia, Moldova, China, and Azerbaijan. But we've just moved home to Southern California, so I'm on Pacific Coast Time these days.

Hey, man. Thanks for all your nice comments about my collabs! And thanks again for letting me channel my inner Robert Earl Keen for One More Empty Seat.

[avatar]

Hi, Doug, thanks for the comments on I Hate Love (Alternative Version.). I agree that Jeff sounds great. Of course, I am so out of it, I had to Google Ric Ocasek to see what you were talking about. So, double thanks!

@nadine

Thanks for your comment on the "Quarterlife Blues". We plan an update on 50/90, but the final version won't happen here. I'll upload on SoundCloud and YouTube in some months.

[avatar]

Doug! Stumbled into 50/90 super late. If you're still around, we gotta collab. I need something summery/sunshine vibes, light and breezy with some synthy rock tones. Like a big stadium tour classic. Hit me up if you want to work on something more specific. 😀

@mikeb

Thanks for the listen and comment on my 'synth-pop' song, it was an interesting experiment!

[avatar]

Hi, Doug. Glad you got a kick out of Cranky Old Men. Jeff did a great job on it and his delivery was perfect, IMO.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Doug. All to easy to sing along to these songs about old farts, I’m afraid.

[avatar]

I’m a bit late, but thank you so much for your comment on „In your glow“ - I’m very happy that you enjoyed it, it really means a lot to me! <3

[avatar]

Old Leon Russell! Yes, I can hear that, too. I'm glad you liked what David did with Broken. He is such a great collab partner! Thanks for listening and commenting.

@jeff9

Thanks, Doug, for subjecting your ears to "Normandy" and the kind words.

@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'On the Far Side of the Universe'!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you, Doug, for the nice comments on "Second Time Around". Seems like British guys CAN write good country lyrics.

[avatar]

Thanks Doug, yes a quick write this one, I am a bit stressed at the moment and I guess that had a bearing on it 😀

[avatar]

Thanks for coming back for another listen and the kind words—high praise coming from you, sir.

[avatar]

Maybe a muse get together one day would be nice. Simon (Songwolfe) (@lyricslinger here) lives a long way from myself geographically but his brother lives a mile from my home. We have threatened to meet up :-)

[avatar]

How lovely that you are back home, I wish you well in your semi retirement. Maybe one day we will meet in the flesh that would be cool. I am sure you will carry on writing stellar lyrics in your dotage :-)

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comments on my collab with Geoff - I think the 'huskiness' in my voice is age!

[avatar]

First time I've seen "secret shame" spelled P-R-I-D-E!

[avatar]

I'm going for a Master of Library and Information Science! I've been a paraprofessional cataloging librarian for about a decade, so I finally decided to take the leap. I'll be specializing in cultural heritage (museum studies, archives & preservation, special collections, etc.).

[avatar]

Replying to the "Hi" - Having a very hot summer here in Catalunya.
Hope to get some songs written soon to justify being here.

Una abraçada

[avatar]

Thanks, Doug! I just started grad school, so I probably won't have much time for anything other than listening, but I'm looking forward to your lyrics as always. Have a great summer!

[avatar]

Hi Doug! Thank you for the note - I am out this year but hoping to make FAWM happen. Welcome back to the US!

[avatar]
@hbusse

Thanks so much for the listen and very kind comment on My Perfect Friend!

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on my first 50/90 song! Good to hear (I think!) you are back on US soil now.

[avatar]

Hey! Looks like you're off to a great start. I'll be around in a half-assed sort of way trying to get at least something done.

[avatar]

Doug, Thanks for your comments on I Hate Love. I guess it is kind of similar to I'll Never Fall In Love Again. That idea, anyway.

@sph

Hi Doug, I see you've already started!

@colgoo

Greetings, Doug! Yes to another collaboration….always.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Greetings, Sir Douglas! Glad to have you back on the continent and also to see you here. Might be a few more days before I get out of the starting blocks on 50/90 myself, but I hope we get to work together on something. Have a great one!

[avatar]

Happy 4th Doug, good to be back home I guess? Southern California too, can't be bad :-)

[avatar]

Hello friend, I seem to be out of sorts, but I am here and thinking of you, happy songwriting!

[avatar]

Doug, so glad to see you back here...both on 5090 and in California! You are an outstanding writer. Any musician would be lucky to work with you! Just took a look at your website...very professional! Nice job!

[avatar]

Have a great one Doug :-)

[avatar]

Thank you, Doug! I look forward to reading your lyrics and listening to your collabs! You’re in Baku right now? Interesting! Have a lovely summer.

[avatar]

I hope you have a great summer of songwriting too!

[avatar]
@wacha

Hope you have a great 50/90, looking forward to your work!

[avatar]

Hi Doug. I keep forgetting the Baku location. Here's to warmth at your hemisphere (semihemisphere?)

[avatar]
@donna

Thanks, Doug.
And wishing you a wonderful, creative summer as well. 😊

[avatar]

Hi Doug! I’m present, ready to make the music! 😀 Happy 50/90!

[avatar]

Happy 50/90, Doug! Loving the personal website! Really hope we can do some collabing over the coming months :)
