Doug Cameron


Doug Cameron celebrates newly created works on his latest album, Crossed the Colorado Line, for a CD release party at Tom Grainey's. Fans of the singer/songwriter know it will be a great show and a showcase of one of Boise's talented musicians. The former frontman of Moscow's Stranger Neighbor, Cameron is now flying solo, playing acoustic guitar after touring with the Stranger Neighbor across the U.S. Though he hails from Colorado, he's calling Idaho home for awhile. "I have a serious passion for the guitar and recording music is definitely my therapy for learning life's lessons. If you listen to my new album I think you'll concur," Cameron says on his Web site at His lyrics are poignant and resonate with the sentimental side of life. Cameron's influences of Dave Matthews, The Samples and Toad the Wet Sprocket are understandable after one listen to his songs, and the show Friday will provide the audience with a definitive feel for his music.

9:30 p.m., FREE, Tom Grainey's, 109 S. 6th St., 345-2505.
