Doug Gillard

Having played with the likes of rock bands Gem, Death of Samantha, Cobra Verde, Nada Surf, and a little indie outfit called Guided By Voices — you might have heard of them — it’s safe to say that Doug Gillard needs no real introduction. An accomplished guitarist and songwriter, he can shift easily between Guided By Voices’ loud, post-punk anthems, and the more mellow, muted ballads of his own solo repertoire.

Travis says: “While perhaps best known for his 9 year tour of duty playing lead guitar in GUIDED BY VOICES, DOUG GILLARD stands as a consistently excellent songwriter as well as an in-demand sideman. I was very lucky to have Doug join me in the studio to play a few of his songs and to chat at length about his many projects and the few things we’ve done together recently. Doug is one of my all time rock and roll idols.”

Doug Gillard’s latest album, Call From Restricted, is out now on 347 Records.
