Dave Douglas



Dave Douglas is a musician, most widely known for being in the Christian music industry as the former drummer of the Christian rock band Relient K. Douglas joined the band after their former drummer, Stephen Cushman, departed in late 2000. Douglas had been playing the drums and doing background vocals for the band for seven years. His style often focuses on heavy snare hits on the beat and complex kick patterns.

He sang a few solos for the band, and he has also started a side solo music project called Agnes (see below for more). Back when he joined Relient K, Douglas was also filling in as a guitarist for Ace Troubleshooter, whose frontman was future Relient K bassist John Warne. In summer 2006, Douglas announced another side project of his. This second side project is called Gypsy Parade, and he performs for this project with his wife. He is currently writing more songs for both of his side projects.

When asked to name something odd about every member of Relient K, lead singer Matt Thiessen told how Dave Douglas has two ferrets. This has proven to be true, as Douglas posted a picture of his ferrets on the Relient K Forums.

Douglas has said that he loves airplanes, and said that when he was younger, he either wanted to be a pilot or a musician when he grew up. While he is obviously a musician, he said he still wants to get his pilot's license someday.

Dave Douglas announced October 18, 2007 that he would be resigning from Relient K December 29, 2007. He is pursuing new musical avenues, and he started devoting as much time as possible to Gypsy Parade, the project he started with his wife. That band has been reformed into a band called Attack Cat.

Douglas currently lives in Cleveland, Ohio with his wife, Rachel.
