Biography:
Doug Tidstrand is an L.A.-based singer/songwriter. His debut album, “Everything I Am,” is in final production and the songs are currently being previewed by various audiences. Doug is one of five boys, all musically gifted in their own right. At Doug’s 1990 wedding to his wife and writing partner, lyricist Jennifer Miller, “The Tuxedos” made their debut. An impromptu jam session at the wedding led the five brothers (in their “tuxedos”) to play at various family and social events. A family trip to the Hollywood Bowl at the age of 8 gave Doug his great epiphany. He absorbed the sounds of each and every instrument and knew that he had found his calling. A music scholarship to California State University, Northridge afforded Doug the opportunity to major in voice and further hone his natural talents. In addition to his upcoming record, Doug has scored a number of independent films, tv specials and worked with some of L.A.’s finest and most sought-after studio session musicians. “Everything I Am” is a culmination of years of experience, a tremendous musical and vocal talent, and collaborative efforts with extremely talented and seasoned musicians and lyricists.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
