"I have known Doug for more than 7 years and I can vouch 100% for his talent and dedication to his work, as well as being a great human being overall. Being a long time musician as well I believe I am a good judge of character, and Doug is without a doubt one of the hardest working people I know, especially when it comes to something he's passionate about.
