Area Resident is the moniker of Doug Hempstead. Doug hails from the Ottawa Valley, as does the inspiration for much of the music on this, his self-titled debut album released in late October. A CBC radio traffic reporter, Doug works split shifts which gives him the luxury of five hours off in between those shifts — in an empty house with a makeshift recording studio in the basement.
The music on Area Resident was written and recorded during the spring and summer of 2016 in Bells Corners. It was sent to Doug’s pal Jordon Zadorozny in Pembroke where he edited, mixed and mastered it. Jordon, an established producer and musician known for his band Blinker The Star, also added several overdubs.
Doug performs live with John Higney, Kristy Nease and Paul Jensen. Next gigs are part of City Folk`s Marvest and the LP-release party for the second album Delano on Nov. 11 at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, Que.
