Irvine, California – Doug Schmude’s musical journey started in the late 1990s during his time in Colorado. Since then, Doug has gone around several states, honing his skills.

His dedication towards self-growth has helped him become a passionate Americana singer who creates music with ever-changing perspectives on life.

Doug’s latest release is his 5th album, an EP titled ‘Mileposts’, that is available on all the popular music platforms. The artist worked hard to release the album under his independent label, the Lost Hubcap.  The EP has 7 songs including his first single, “Mileposts In The Rear View”.
