Doug Deming is an American blues and roots guitarist/vocalist, born and raised in the Detroit area, currently residing on the Gulf coast of Florida. Doug is the 2013 recipient of the Blues Blast Music Awards' Sean Costello Rising Star Award. Drawing influence from greats like T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian and Robert Jr. Lockwood, Doug's traditional taste and style are evident in his original music. Doug has four recordings of primarily original tunes to his credit, including his latest release, COMPLICATED MESS, on EllerSoul Records.
Throughout his 20+ year career Doug has enjoyed touring and recording with many top blues artists, including Kim Wilson, Gary Primich, Lazy Lester, Alberta Adams, AC Reed and Johnny "Yard Dog" Jones to name a few; as well as with his own band featuring various artists such as Greg "Fingers" Taylor, Terry Hanck, Steve Guyger and Dennis Gruenling. Doug Deming & the Jewel Tones play traditional blues, West Coast and Texas swing, and early 50's roots rock. This is real deal rockin' rhythm & blues!
"The Jewel Tones are absolutely one of the tightest acts on the circuit, and Deming, an impressive musician in his Detroit days, is better than ever in every department- songwriting, singing, and guitar playing. The excellent Complicated Mess should appear on every list of the best albums of 2018." - BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE
