Here are some reviews of Doug's previous albums 

‘Between the Shadows and the Light’ by Winnipeg Sun’s Darryl Sterdan

Edmond's album finds him betwixt a number of genres and influences. While his raspy pipes and folksy delivery suggest he's spent quality time with Bob Dylan's catalogue, some jazzy pop and burbling guitars move things in a Knopfler-esque direction -- as the mellow saxophone and soulful elements take a detour to Van Morrison's realm. Rather than being neither here nor there, Edmond makes “between” seems like the right place to be.

‘Starry Nights’ - **** (FOUR STARS) by Uptown’s Deborah Remus

Songwriter, pianist and singer Doug Edmond has teamed up with many other musicians and vocalists for Starry Nights, a jazzy compilation of holiday tunes. While all the songs are excellent…the smaller instrumental tracks really shine. The record starts off with saxophone, courtesy of Bill Spornitz, playing a small portion of carols such as The First Noel before launching into one of Edmond’s original songs. Guitar arrangements and a piano instrumental between tracks sound beautiful, too. Basically, this is a group of musicians using their talents to make Christmas music a little bit better and a lot more interesting.
