2009 has been a banner year for Doug Towle. He performed at several major festivals in Western Canada including the Central Music Festival in Red Deer AB, the Winteruption Festival in Vancouver BC as well as a headlining appearance at the Juan De Fuca Festival in Port Angeles WA. He was also invited to attend the Zihuatenjo Guitar Festival in Mexico where he played to sold out audiences for ten days in a paradise like setting. He was also selected from thousands of other entries as one of the top ten guitarists in North America by the editorial staff at Guitar Player Magazine and was invited to perform at their Guitar Player Live event as part of the 2009 superstar competition held in San Francisco California.
He’s now thrilled to announce the release of his new album “Desire, Heat & Spirit”. A searing mix of Salsa, Latin Jazz and Spanish Guitar. Doug and his band are a stunning display of musicianship and entertainment.
