Doug Cash is a singer, songwriter, musician, arranger, producer and performer. President of Pryor 2 What? Records, and owner of Pryor 2 What? Music Publishing. Heavily influenced by Sly & the Family Stone, Beatles, James Brown, Led Zeppelin, Weather Report, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Yes, raised on Big Band (Basie, Ellington, Miller, Goodman) and Bebop ( Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk ) Doug was groovin’ with the muse before he could walk. From Louis Armstrong to Kate Bush, his tastes and influences are wide and varied.
“For All The Times” is a track taken off the EP of the same title. Like almost all of Doug Cash’s songs, this one is another easy listen, with smooth acoustic driven music and a catchy melody. As usual Doug manages to capture all the alluring aspects of his songwriting, singing, and playing within the three and a half minutes that make up the song.
On “For All The Times” Doug Cash once again forges his distinctive understated organic style, which blends blues, folk, rock and pop. Doug comes from the old school of songwriting which means he places a strong emphasis on melody, harmony, and chord progressions which comprehensibly fit the well pondered narrative.
Listening to this single, and the EP, we rediscover an artist that looks at life by way of pleasant melodies sung by a master songwriter. It’s always easy to relate to his work on a descriptive intellectual level, in other words an exact and true understanding of the meaning of his words, yet you can almost always relate to it on a more abstract spiritual and emotive level too.
Doug Cash has forged his own path impervious of the radical fluctuations of the music industry. Somebody has to maintain the old school standard that warms our hearts and hearkens back to the days of simple organic music. Doug Cash is that man!
