Chris Doud is a singer/songwriter, solo performer, a 52-Week Club charter member, co-frontman of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit, frontman of Horsefinder, and the former lead guitarist of indie bands Built Like Alaska and Fiver. Hear influences of Cash, Cohen, Kristofferson, Clark, Dylan.

While the guitarist for touring indie bands, Chris Doud played over 300 dates in the US and England, often headlining and other times supporting such acts as Frank Black, Camper Van Beethoven, Grandaddy, Sparklehorse, Red House Painters, Radar Bros., Imperial Teen. And, most notably in the indie world, supported Death Cab For Cutie for their entire debut national tour in 1999, which culminated in a jointly performed and recorded EP (Death Cab for Fiver, 1999 Barsuk) on which Chris Doud served as engineer and producer as well as lead guitarist for the tracks.

Chris Doud departed the indie-rock scene in 2003 to set out on the course of solo performance. His latest musical offerings are best genre-ized as folk/americana, with hints of indie and traditional country abounding. Setting up base in Oakdale, CA ("The Cowboy Capital of the World" and suburb of Modesto in case you were wondering) he has kept busy pursuing his solo endeavor, writing, recording and performing as much as possible. Between 2004 and 2005 he wrote and recorded material enough for seven albums. Pirate Research (2005 heckabad) -a collection of indie/americana songs, and Horse Found (2005 heckabad), a group of not-so-serious but damn catchy country songs, were his first forays into the solo recording world. After the release of these two albums Chris Doud joined the inaugural 52-Week Songwriting Club ( and became the first member to complete the task of writing all 52 songs in one year. The wealth of material gleaned from the club nurtured the formation of a full band: The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit ( who subsequently released a full length album in fall 2005 and re-released it in spring 2006. Additionally, Chris Doud's entire output of 52-Week Club songs was recorded to be released as a four disc set but ultimately was tapered down to one, 20-song demo disc of Mr' Doud's favorites and is available through Heckabad Music.
