“Hey Doug Kwartler, Bruce Hornsby calling…” This was the last thing New York based singer / songwriter and producer Doug Kwartler expected to hear on his answering machine after coming home from a very unmusical afternoon shopping for a grill with his wife and 2 year old daughter. Yet over 3 weeks after he had sent the legendary pianist and composer his version of Hornsby’s “On the Western Skyline,” there it was. Music’s other Bruce was just calling to compliment Doug on his interpretation and liked it so much that he said that he might just do it the way Doug did it on his next tour.
On Sept. 19th, 2007, Kwartler released a double cd, his 3rd solo record on Hollow Body Records, called All Sides. Needless to say, his version of “On the Western Skyline” made the cut!
Kwartler’s last cd, Silver Meteor was named one of the top 10 records of 2004 by https://www.tradebit.com. The Austin, Texas based Pop Culture Press called the songs on Silver Meteor, “as honest as they are haunting” and wrote “The lyrics are fantastic…Kwartler does a masterful job escorting the music through the songs.”
Look for upcoming tour dates up and down the east coast in support of the new record. Audio (including Doug’s version of “On the Western Skyline”) and video is available at https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com .
