Doug Cash “ The acoustic Rock Onslaught “

President of Pryor 2 What ? Records, owner of Pryor 2 What ? Music Publishing.
Heavily influenced by Sly & the Family Stone, Beatles, James Brown, Led Zeppelin, Weather Report, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Yes.
Raised on Big band ( Basie, Ellington, Miller, Goodman) and bebop ( Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie,Thelonious Monk ) I was groovin' with the muse before I could walk.
From Louis Armstrong to Kate Bush, my tastes and influences are wide and varied.
While still in high school, in northern California, I joined the band ( Technical Force ) and headed to Los Angeles to pound the pavement and to ink the elusive record deal.
After a four year stint as bassist, songwriter, arranger and back up vocalist, I started producing my own projects, while working full time, playing gigs and raising a family.
In the 90s, I came back to Norcal to hit the local Sacramento scene, joined local group Mind Club, played gigs ( Sammies ), produced at EME Studios for myself and other local artists.
I signed with local indie Subgroove Records in 1997, played at M.T.S (Tower Corporate) for the international buyers and was internationally distributed.
In 2000, I started my own label, SwRecords.net, which in 2010 became Pryor 2 What ? Records and P2W ? Music Publishing.
