. Doug is Doug Neumann, a new musician on Pete Wentz's Decaydance label. He has put out a new album of mostly covers of Decaydance artists (Fall Out Boy, Panic At The Disco, Gym Class Heroes, Cobra Starship, The Hush Sound, The Academy Is...) but has reinvented them as new jazz standards. It's a brilliant album, I highly recommend it.
The man's style is very competent for his chosen genre, and his voice is incredibly smoky and smooth. He's made these songs sexy and whimsical at the same time. So far I'm grooving heavily on Dance Dance (video at right) and his cover of PATD's "But It's Better If You Do".
I also recommend looking at him, because he's major eye candy. Apparently after imbibing a few cocktails he's prone to taking his shirt off - as evidenced in the pics
Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy says of Doug, "I had never heard this record. But this dude had me when his shirt came off; the voice he belted out was just the icing on top of hot man cake."
Hot man cake indeed!
