The deep working class roots of singer/songwriter Don "Doop" Duprie echo throughout his music. Front man for the Detroit area alt-country/roots rock band Doop and the Inside Outlaws, Doop is a laid off firefighter born and raised in industrial River Rouge, Michigan. He teamed up with legendary Detroit producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes) to record his albums "Blood River," "Everett Belcher" and now "What am I supposed to do?" Doop's songwriting has received national attention, having been hailed "hands down the best songwriter we (Detroit) now have to offer the Americana World" by Don Zelazny, AmericanaRoots.com. The albums made the Top Ten Lists in Metro Times and AmericanaRoots.com. "Everett Belcher" won the Detroit Music Award for "Outstanding Country Recording" and was named "Album of the Day" by Country Music Pride's podcast Americana Daily. Doop's music has been featured on the American Public Media radio show 'The Story,' the award-winning podcast Digivegas.com and the #1 rated Americana podcast, 'Americana Roots Roundtable' on NoDepression.com. Now with Pete Ballard on pedal steel guitar, Katie Grace on bass and Danny Kanka on drums, Doop and the gang just released their third full length album. Album "Blood River" features ten songs that vary from down-home country rock and heartfelt Americana ballads to gritty Detroit rock 'n' roll. Each song tells the story of living life in a place that was once a burgeoning city and dealing with life's trials and tribulations. The album has found fans in listeners who appreciate good honest music that comes from straight from the soul. Reviews "Blood River by Doop & The Inside Outlaws is the real deal - a raw, honest mix of workingman's country and rock 'n' roll from the heartland that swaggers like The Waco Brothers." - Cat (Radio Free Americana DJ) "True country music loyalists rejoice! 'Blood River,' has more twang than you can shake a stick at, but it packs enough wallop to not be categorized as a "tear in my beer" country album. This album rocks harder than most country CDs I've heard. There's attitude a plenty." - Ray Anderson, TheCelebrityCafe.com.
