Little Too Late - EP
All The Lies I tell - Full Length



Get up close and personal with Doug Gorrie like never before on his latest offering "All the lies I tell", an album that was almost a decade in the making. Featuring timeless songs like "Crutch" and "Blue Eyes", this opus is sure to set Gorrie apart on today's folk rock scene.

"Seven years ago I knew I had this album in me, I guess I just didn't know how to get it out". Doug Gorrie's highly anticipated new release All the Lies I Tell is being released on July 26th 2008. This full length 11 song CD is co-produced by Josh Nix (Nix records), as the first release under the label and has already started to fly online in and out of Canada.

Venture with Gorrie into uncharted territory on songs like "4 feet of snow" where he boldly showcases his vulnerability as he details a love lost, or "All For You", a brilliant narrative offering a different perspective of Kathleen Edwards "Six O clock news". In this song, Gorrie's soothing vocals and detailed storytelling weave an intricate tale of a man who just robbed a bank but is now cornered in his house by the police while his girlfriend is stuck outside in the crowd. "It's all up for interpretation; it's the strangest song I have written. Though I know Kathleen well, I never really asked for the whole story of the song, I just kind of took it my own way and responded".

Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada, Gorrie has effortlessly let little bits of his home town peer through this album on songs like "Broke and Sober" which features the rich vocals of the lovely Amanda Soderholm. Lyrics like "the train tracks run through my home town, they make me late for work and get me down" show Gorrie's attention to songwriting detail is key. Thanks to the aforementioned songs, comparisons to Bruce Springsteen, Blue Rodeo and Kathleen Edwards almost seem inevitable. But to Gorrie, such "compliments" come with a grain of salt. "It's always a tough question when you're asked "who do you sound like?" I change way too much to ever keep a comparison. Hell, I had somebody even say Otis Redding one night, I'll take that any day".

With an album like "All the lies I tell" that balances great songwriting, stellar production and soulful vocals, those comparisons might not be far off at all.
