Doug Rusk is a singer-songwriter-guitarist-solo performer who lives in Woodinville. He's written hundreds of songs and plays tons of cool covers spanning the decades. Wherever he plays, Doug gets a great reception. During the 2020 coronavirus shutdown Doug performed a weekly Facebook Live “Happy Hour Show” 60-90 minutes, where he was getting 200+ views from a local audience. In May of 2020, Doug put out 2 original songs on YouTube within a week that both got 650+ views within several days of release. Doug has a bit of an unusual musical background for a professional musician. He was a highly successful swim coach from 1990 through 2021, and never performed music in public until 2013. At that time, as Doug continued his career as a swimming Head Coach, he started performing a couple nights a week at open mics and other music gigs. Doug has since built up a strong following and is now a well-established member of the local music community. He is known for his prolific songwriting and gets steady praise for his songs, his voice, his guitar playing, and his overall performances. In August of 2021 Doug retired from coaching to focus full time on writing and performing his music.
