- Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist
Doug Henthorn was born and raised in the small town of Crawfordsville, Indiana - about 50 miles Northwest of the state's capital. His passion for music began around the age of 7.
“I remember hearing Aerosmith's first record from the cockpit of some carnival ride. It scared me. The sound was something that made me very uncomfortable but it was the most alluring thing I'd ever heard in my short life- it started a habit I've never been able to kick.”
In the late 90s Doug sang and played guitar with 'Pod' on Columbia Records. “We were a prog rock thing that really had no place in what was going on at the time, but it was great. I learned more about the music industry than anyone should ever know.”
After the demise of Pod, Doug formed the blues/rock band Healing Sixes. The band released 4 records - 'Maple', 'Enormosound' (produced by Kevin Shirley), 'One Less Friend to Ignore', and 'Bluejay'.
After almost 15 years, countless shows and line up changes, Healing Sixes called it quits in 2012.
Throughout his career and currently, Doug has worked with many artists in many regards and continues with his solo project.
“I'm very proud to have worked with so many incredible projects and artists over the years, but I have to say that I really love what I'm doing now moment to moment.
I've always been very reluctant about a solo career. But the fact that I can now write what I write, sing what I sing, and play whatever the hell I want without any preconceived notion is very liberating. I call it 'The Henthorn LLC'. It's whatever I want it to be, and it can go in any musical direction I choose at any given moment. There are no rules, and there is no business plan. It's truly limited liability.”
