Progressive Roots Music for the Modern Trailer Trash Sophisticate


On November 13, 2007, the songwriting team of Doug Harris and Doug Sneed aka: The Dirty Dougs officially released their first album, Without "U" We'd Be Dogs featuring 10 original songs. The record pairs Harris' power vocals and harmonica with Sneed's ecclectic fingerpicking style on acoustic guitar. Together, the two create a twisted brand of Americana they describe as, "progressive roots music for the modern trailer trash sophisticate". Their music expresses dark epiphanies of love, death, and religion with southern wit. Recorded with a minimal amount of overdubs, the music has a raw, organic feel.
Both natives of East TN, the two started writing together while attending college at Middle TN. They have played in several bands together covering the wide expanse of southern roots music. They draw from a wide variety of influences: Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, Jim White, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, Miles Davis, The Allman Bros, Van Morrison, Jerry Reed, Charlie Musselwhite...the list goes on and on. In 2004 the two started the Monday Night Acoustic Jam at Brackins Blues Bar in Maryville Tn. In 2005 as members of the band Blue Revolution, Harris and Sneed were part of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis representing the Smoky Mountain Blues Society.
