“I heard you playin’ out there……You’re good, very good”

Robin Bank, Award Winning Blues Artist
“I tip off my hat to Douglas Watson, one of the finest Bluesmen I’ve had the pleasure to meet, perform with and befriend. Douglas has added an authentic Blues flavour to the scene here in Canada, and London Ontario should be proud to call him their own! Not only is he a terrific Blues bass player, but his full throated vocal style and strong stage presence is matched by few. All the best to you Douglas! Cheers!”

Tim Holek, Big City Blues Magazine
“Douglas Watson is an unsigned blues hero who has played with Muddy, Magic Slim, AC Reed and many others. Watson has one of the best blues voices you will hear. The band played several tight sets which made you think they have been playing together for years. If you hear of them playing at a club near you, check ‘em out!”

Chris Murphy, Independent Blues Recording Label
“Speakeasy CDs” “Douglas Watson … is one of the finest blues vocalists and front men on the Canadian scene”

Louise Cottrell, Heliope Magazine
“I’ve seen Douglas Watson perform many, many times. He is definitely one of the leading blues vocalists of our time. It is only natural that this son of Lovie Lee (Muddy Water’s last pianist) has an instinctive ability to make a bass guitar sound like its only purpose was to play the blues. His energetic stage performance will leave you breathless and his gospel harmonies alone will touch your soul.”

Steve Bellamy, Canadian Blues Artist
“I had the very great pleasure to meet Douglas when he was on tour on the west coast, and then again here in Montreal. One of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met, and one of the most talented musicians I’ve ever met. When you hear Douglas sing the blues, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.”

Bruce Hall, President Grand River Blues Society
“Douglas Watson is ‘The Man with the Million Dollar Voice.”

Claude Cloutier – Promoter, “Blues on the East Side”
“Douglas Watson is the Real Deal”
