Meet Our Artists


The Real Doug Lane


Raised in south Texas, Doug now resides in Utah with his wife, four kids, and Dodger the boxer. He enlisted in the Army in 2000 after a sly recruiter convinced him to audition for the Army band as a saxophonist. Doug was soon assigned to the 1AD Band in Germany. He deployed to Iraq in 2003-2004, where he played concerts for troops, supported ceremonies, and performed lots of guard duty. While Doug has been performing in various groups for more than a decade, he recently began playing his own music publicly as The Real Doug Lane.  Doug joined Operation Encore’s second album with his song "Faces,” inspired by his grandfather, a World War II veteran. “Faces” became the title of his latest EP, released in November of 2018.
