"Sonar Show Review"

Luckily for me, I was able to get to the static chain 2nd anniversary show on 2/22/08 at Sonar earlier than expected- I walked in just as the show was starting and got to hear:

He is forever renamed Doug "Lupe" A'Hern in my mind! Unfortunately, technical difficulties prevented him from doing as many loops on his songs as he wanted, but it was very impressive nonetheless. He did the song "Love and a Reason" from the static chain cd and it was a blast watching him add guitar, then bass, then drums by banging on the guitar, etc. etc. in loop after loop after loop...I had already finished some beer by this point so I couldn't accurately calculate the number of loops he put down, but he sadly stopped short of the awesome guitar solo he does on the recording (i guess you'll have to buy cd sampler vol 2 to check it out). He also did 3 other songs that I hadn't heard before: Fall Line, Push the Flame, and Ms. Beautiful. It's clear that this songwriter can deliver live on what he writes-great songs and a great performance. I liked it so much I bought his cd and have played it about 7 times already. I wasn't sure if his airy vocals would translate well to a live performance in a rock club, but my fears were unfounded. It's not an easy thing to fill a rock club with just a guitar and a voice box, but he rose to the challenge (even when the loop machine didn't).

Bio

Have you listened to Doug A’Hern yet? If you’re a fan of inspiring and intelligent alternative rock music, this is that and everything more. For the last 5 years Doug A’Hern has been cultivating his own style of acoustic indie-fied rock. Now is the time to turn on your ears and hear it. Put all your attention to his carefully crafted, yet rich melodies. He sings! He writes! He plays guitar! He may just be the next big thing…maybe?

Not only has Doug spent the past years spreading his music around to all kinds of audiences, but he’s managed to do it all on his own, “while getting by with a little help from his friends.” Doug has shared the stage with The Last Goodnight, I Nine, Ben Lee, Ben Jelen, Matt Wertz, and Kyle Riabko just to name a few. Doug’s latest EP, “A Reason to Love,” produced, mixed, and mastered by Ned Boyle, captures Doug growing into a complete artist with a lot to offer.
