Doug Meier is a solo Country musician from Ottawa, Kansas. Active since the mid 90s, Meier has released two albums 1996's Candlelights and Bubblebath, and 2001's Straight From the Heart.

HistoryEdit

In 1996, Doug Meier released his critically acclaimed debut album Candlelights and Bubblebath, which contained the hits "Boone's Wine, Strawberry Hill" and "Little Tommy's Prayer." The former single was applauded for the unique vocal technique, which has been described as a "falsetto cowboy yodel." The latter song was written about Doug Meier's sister, who suffered from Cerebral Palsy. According to the album's liner notes, parts of the songs proceeds would be donated to benefit the United Cerebral Palsy Research and Education Foundation.

The album also contained the song "Don't It Make You Smile" about the Oklahoma City Bombings. Despite featuring an easily misinterpreted title, proceeds from the song were donated to those effected by the bombings.

In 2001, Meier released his follow-up to Candlelights and Bubblebath entitled Straight From the Heart.

Copyright StanceEdit

Since 1996, Doug Meier has maintained a very firm stance on copyright policy. In the liner notes of his 1996 album Candlelights and Bubblebath Meier maintained that illegally copying his music hurt his income. Thus, he urged listeners to buy his albums.
