ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aloha,

A performing musician since age 8, Doug was raised in a rural mountain area in a family of accomplished professional and amateur folk musicians. “I was brought up on acoustic music and spending time outdoors. Hawaiian music speaks to me because it’s an acoustic tradition that reflects its people and their natural surroundings. It
paints a beautiful sonic picture that relies on heart and soul for interpretation. I’ve been very fortunate to be a student of several of the best slack-key players and I feel strongly that those styles should be preserved. Yet, as a singer/songwriter, I draw from my own experiences and that also seems to resonate with others.”

From lush, languid, lilting tropical sounds, to fast, furious, frenetic guitar picking, Doug Fitch performs traditional slackkey guitar and sings original and Hawaiian music with skill and passion. “This music reflects what I love about Hawai`i: The people, the
mountains, the winds, rains, and rolling surf. This is the soundtrack for a way of life in which relationships are valued and nature is revered. It’s been a gift to me and I love to share it.” Doug performs regularly at
major resorts in Waikiki and at weddings, private parties and corporate functions.

Whether playing traditional, popular, or original compositions, Fitch’s performances reflect enthusiasm and creativity as well his respect for his teachers and the traditions of the music. He has been a featured songwriter, singer, and musician on several albums and has been a featured artist at the Na Mele Nei Concert Series. He is a frequent performer at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki and the Ko’olina Beach Club Resort.

Sports fans may remember Doug from his days as a professional bicycle racer when he became the first bicyclist to appear on the Wheaties cereal box in 1988. He was a member of the U.S. National Cycling Team during the 1980s, and became the U.S. National Champion in 1986. He won the Visalia Cycling Classic, the infamous
Pikes Peak Hill Climb, and the Tour of Peru. After retiring from racing, he completed his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Denver.
