"Single Review: The Real Doug Lane “Outlaws, Lovers and Home”"

“Outlaws, Lovers and Home” from The Real Doug Lane contains a gentle Folk-Rock feel to the music. The inclusion of the mandolin on the track brings out the Folk influence to the music while also adding to the easy feel of the track. Like many of the tracks that have come out of the Operation: Encore concept, “Outlaws, Lovers and Home” from The Real Doug Lane consists of lyrics that deal with things that have happened in Lane’s real life after his time in the military. But in this case, the lyrics are very relatable as many of us can find ourselves thinking about things we miss after moving away from the place we used to call home. The track’s lyrics deal with some of the things that Lane misses since he moved out of Texas to build a life for himself and his family in Utah. The slow pace to the music as well as the gentle feel that comes from the mandolin seems to add just a little sadness to Lane’s lyrics as well as his vocals that truly bring the song to life.

While it’s only one track, “Outlaws, Lovers and Home” from The Real Doug Lane gives a good indication of the talent that lies within the singer-songwriter. And this is only the first of several songs from Lane as he is in the process of creating a new EP that will be released in early 2018. - Matheson Kamin

"The Real Doug Lane ‘Water From the Stone’"

The title track, ‘Water From the Stone’ is about being broke and life never relenting on that fact. It’s life for many. It’s something that is all of us, to some degree. TRDL sings about it, with his other single off of his full album, available now. - Come Here Floyd

"It’s easy to take the weird for granted, to think that everything you’ve done and experienced in your life is completely normal. Then one day, you start telling stories, and your psychologist says, ‘Man, I’m surprised you’re not more screwed up than you are!’ And that’s why I write – because I can’t be the only one feeling this way. And someone has to say it.”

– Doug Lane, The Real Doug Lane

Doug was raised in Kingsville, Texas, in the shadow of King Ranch. His father was a Navy officer and his mother was amazing. He served four years in the Army and ended his contract honorable -- always thankful for the experience, and glad when it ended.

His passion for music started early. “One of my earliest memories is ‘conducting’ the college orchestra with a rolled up program. I was probably 3.” From there, he studied piano, then saxophone. Doug found his voice on the guitar toward the end of his time in the Army.

A lifetime musician and performer, Doug began performing his own original songs in 2014 in small venues around Utah. At his first solo gig, the owner linked his performance to another artist – another Doug Lane – and an offhand joke solidified his stage name. From that moment on, Doug began performing as The Real Doug Lane.

In 2016, his song “Faces” was selected by Operation Encore, an organization that brings together singer/songwriters from across the country who are part of the military and veteran communities. His 2021 debut album “Water From the Stone” reached fans throughout the USA and built new audiences overseas with hits “After All the Drinking’s Done”, “Dancing in the Rain”, and fan-favorite “Piss On Your Shoes”. Following the success of his “Unmasked Tour” in 2021, TRDL and band will be releasing their sophomore album “King of Mediocrity” in Spring 2022. 

Doug currently resides in Provo, Utah with his wife, their four children, and two dogs (Dodger and Bear), and Oliver the cat.
