At age 16, Doug Burr picked up the guitar for the first time. Within two years, he began writing his own lyrics and composing his own songs. After more than ten years performing at open mics, coffeehouses, and church gatherings in Dallas, he became front man for the roots rock band The Lonelies. However, in 2003, Burr cut an independent gospel concept album titled "The Sickle & the Sheaves" that quickly received critical attention. Extracting from his own spirituality and the environment around him, Burr creates honest observations of both the world and himself in a way that is both forgiving and unapologetic.
