Engineer & Producer
Lead guitarist for Hostage, Doug branched out into doing sound for other bands. He has spent over 20 years working in the retail music industry, gaining a vast knowledge of equipment and techniques. Some of you may know Doug from Guitar Czar, and MARS Music where he was the Technology Department Manager.
After the experience of cutting his band's first album, he began his career as a producer in 1992. That's when he and his wife Shar moved to Utah and started Woodshar Productions. Several years later, they built a custom studio in it's current location of Taylorsville.
Doug has worked with so many musicians and bands in the
Salt Lake area, it's almost impossible to make a list!
