Doug Hawco is based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

This singer/songwriter writes on emotion instead of genre mainly due to his musical influences of rockers U2, Ryan Adams, 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.
