Synopsis

Album Description
"With each album, Doug Hoekstra mines a fresh way to present his moody, unpredictable story songs. On "Around the Margins", his songwriting remains uniformly powerful, while his arrangements once again introduce new sonic elements to his tunes. This time out he weaves a female voice, electronic effects and natural instruments into a spellbinding setting that, rather than distracting a listener, instead pulls them into the story. Hoekstra makes good use of the attention he receives, spinning a provactive thread of personal tales involving death, family and how relationships change as the years advance" (Michael McCall, Nashville TN)

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hoekstra continues to broaden both his lyrical perspective and surrounding musical landscape on Around The Margins. Never overstated, his albums always have a way of getting under your skin somehow. This one accomplishes that with engaging lyrics, gospel backup vocals and a spinning Pignose amp... Highly recommended to those of you who are up to the challenge of listening to something different."
