Doug Seegers is an Americana singer and songwriter based in Nashville. In the early '70s, Seegers' musical aspirations took him to Austin, where he renamed himself "Duke the Drifter." There he encountered guitarist and producer Buddy Miller, and for a time they not only played together, but Seegers lived with Miller and his wife. While there, he heard -- and was deeply moved by -- the country-rock emerging from the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young, and Gram Parsons' recordings with Emmylou Harris, claiming they brought him back to his first musical love. After a series of misfortunes, Seegers issued his debut album in 2010, entitled Going Down to the River, featuring an all-star cast including Phil Madeira, Will Kimbrough, Al Perkins, and Barbara Lamb. ~ Thom Jurek
