Starting his musical career with a degree in Psychology, Portland resident Douglas Appling began taking music classes on the side, and it wasn't long until he'd left the chaise lounge for the mixing desk.
Releasing his debut album Soon It Will Be Cold Enough in 2006, under the name Emancipator, Appling mixed dynamic instrumentation with imaginative song constructions. Challenging, driving, and at times hypnotic, words were reserved and sparse, allowing the music to lead the journey.
Returning this year with a remix version of third record Dusk To Dawn, Appling caught more attention and acclaim online. But now he brings his glorious and gripping creations to the stage at The Garage.
