“RAUSCH caught his first compositional accolades when Jordan Rudess, keyboard wizard of Dream Theater, contacted him to perform in a special master-class known as KEYFEST”

I have enjoyed many varieties of progressive music through the years. I’ve not, however, focused an episode of Audio Gumshoe on a progressive artist in the six years of the show. I’m not sure why. When Doug Rausch wrote on the Audio Gumshoe Facebook Page wall I was curious enough to follow up. I found that he is one of the many CyberPR represented artists that have been learning how to promote their music.

Cover art image for RAUSCH albumRAUSCH is the self-titled debut album by classically-trained Dough Rausch. His determination to finish this project is well-realized. Being noticed by prominent industry leaders such as Jordan Rudess is no small feat (though it was an unreleased 11-minute epic track called “Flow” that sparked that attention). He has brought in a few key players, including guitarist Gary Wehrkamp, known best for his seemingly superhuman achievements in the progressive rock juggernaut, Shadow Gallery. Also involved is Spock’s Beard/Transatlantic mixing engineer Rich Mouser.

I’ll be honest: I wasn’t impressed by Doug Rausch’s vocals at first. But that’s not the only quality that I use to determine what music will be featured on the show. I heard quality production, intense and well-trained composition, and an edge that made me want to continue to listen. I’ve truly enjoyed hearing his songs many times as they’ve rotated into my iPod playlist.

RAUSCH has a very interesting history that you may enjoy reading at his site DougRausch.com. Here’s an excerpt:

[Doug] has been studying, writing, practicing, performing, and otherwise living music relentlessly ever since the day his parents all but wrote him off. This obsession recently landed him a degree from the prestigious Ithaca College School of Music in New York, where he won recognition as concerto competition finalist with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. A diverse following began to build as his tireless vision of resuscitating rock and roll collided headfirst with his obligations to “serious music.” For the encore of an ambitious recital on the eve of his 21st birthday, his 13-piece band joined him in tribute to Guns N Roses. November Rain took a classical music school to tears.
