25) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Douglas Miles Clarke-'Serendipitous'
San Antonio has always had a few great singer songwriters, and right now there seems to be a good amount of them around. One that apparently feels right at home in Texas is Canadian born singer/songwriter Douglas Miles Clarke. Since he found his voice and passion for songwriting a few years ago, it seems there was a lot of songs locked up inside. He has become pretty prolific in the past three or four years, producing one, if not two albums of great songs each year. This year he made what I think might be his best album to date. A album chock full of great songs, but also great musicians. Douglas himself is accompanied by John Dufilho of The Deathray Davies and The Apples In Stereo, Jason Garner of The Polyphonic Spree, San Antonio boy wonder Marcus Rubio who is now a mature trained musician in his mid-20's, Raul-Esteban Alvarez of Austin's Slomo Drags; and that's just naming a few of the great musicians on this album. Apparently Douglas already has another album being recorded by Dallas great singer/songwriter/producer Salim Nourrallah, and we can't wait to hear it. If Douglas keeps company this good, he should be creating great music for years to come. "Passengers milling and waiting on the number 9 to cross town just fine with us." - Michael - MFL
