KDB3 is the alter ego of Doug Bowers, a multi-instrumentalist singer / song writer and producer who makes his home on the gulf coast of North West Florida. KDB3 has released two albums of thoughtful, hard driving Christian progressive rock.
Fresh from his inclusion on the CPR 3 compilation with his band, Ad Astra, Dougís solo release, VERITE, stands solidly in the progressive rock tradition without being bombastic or unnecessarily complex. This isnít your 70s progressive rock knock off, Doug brings modern driving melodies, guitar lines and synth riffs to fill the ears and delight any fan of the genre. Be certain that the themes represented reflect Dougís Christian faith, but you wonít be lectured or preached into submission. Lyrically youíll find honesty, humor, irony and cause for self reflection.
This is a concept album with a strong Christian message that puts the personal testimony of Doug Bowers to music. The journey covers several musical styles from keyboard driven, proggy pop to more straightforward, edgier rock. The songs have great hooks and melodies and feature a cast of outstanding session players including ex-Glass Hammer shredder David Wallimann. Dougís lyrics are tasteful and unpredictable with quite a bit of humor thrown in.
Death!...You Lose! Autobiograph
Doug writes, records and produces music during domestic down time. Although his taste in music ranges from classical to progressive metal, progressive rock influences are evident in the majority of his songs. His lyrics come from life experiences and his rather orthodox Christian worldview. Comparisons aside, Doug simply writes the songs as they are presented to him by the Master Songwriter. Pretty simple concept. Recording and production tasks are carried out literally "in house". Doug plays and sings all but the hard parts which he farms out to various friends in the business.
