First day

Sarah Dougher was in several bands in the 1990's, none of which really went anywhere. Part of the problem is that Dougher is a professor at Portland State University, and thus has never really had the single-minded focus needed to actually succeed in the music business. Besides, she's a chunky feminist professor who looks like one, not a blond bombshell. I suppose she could have done a Lady Gaga and bleached her hair and dressed in kooky costumes that hid her body, but I suspect she would have given you a lecture on female empowerment if you dared make such a suggestion to her.

So anyhow, she loves music, she loves playing music, so she's been solo since 1999 even though she really doesn't go anywhere outside of her immediate vicinity. This one is "Day One" from her 1999 album by the same name.

  1. She is the music and not a costume stunt.

  2. Yeppers, like most other musicians in America, the majority of whom gig part-time and work their real job the rest of the time, virtually none of whom will ever be known outside their immediate community.

  3. Thanks Mr. Tux for your frequent introductions to these talents.
