Doug Hawco is based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He grew up in a musical family in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada where his Dad was an entertainer along with many of his siblings.
In February 2017 Doug released his 2nd full length album called "Life on the Water". The interesting part is that he wrote and recorded the album while recovering from brain tumour surgery.
This singer/songwriter writes on emotion instead of genre mainly due to his musical influences of rockers U2, country legend Garth Brooks and the traditional styles of Great Big Sea. Doug expresses his broad and unique writing style in his latest Folk/Americana/Roots album with stories that will make you want to smile, dance or cry.
Doug had recently won the Fan Voting contest for the 2017 Stan Rogers Festival held in Canso, Nova Scotia, one of the oldest running songwriting festivals in Atlantic Canada.
Playing in pubs for over 20 years, Doug's experience brings out a high level of professionalism and brings the crowd into an intimate setting. A stadium of 5000 or a cafe of 20 will be clapping and singing along with his performance.
