About

As a songwriter playing venues around Winnipeg through the 1960’s and the 1970’s Doug would contend with requests for cover bands, of which he says “It was hard to play original material. There were several venues, The Ting, The Fireplace, The 18th Step, Cromagnon, [who were] open to original folk music. By 1971 I had 30 originals”.

Releasing his first recorded single in 1979 " Play On " was recorded at Road West Studios in Winnipeg MB. During the 80's and 90's Doug collaborated with his wife Lana, poet & lyricist, to write over 60 songs. Christmas 2015 Doug released a 5 song EP featuring the song " Dear John ", a tribute to the Late John Lennon. The EP was initialized in response to a request from Yoko Ono for a recorded version of the song, after hearing of it from a friend that had heard Doug play it as his wedding in 2011.

Doug Shand is currently recording his second EP set to release for June 2017. He is also busy hosting Saturday open mic at his vintage store " Vintage Glory " at 380 Donald St. Winnipeg next door to Manitoba music
