Dirty Doug and Jonny: The Story

A Musical Journey

DD & J is a musical project based in Knoxville, TN. The core of the group consists of “Dirty Doug” Harris on vocals and harmonica, along with Jon “Jonny” Mason on guitar. Sonically, the two, as a duo, are reminiscent of old rough cut country blues. Electrified, with a rhythm section and full accompaniment, their sound transforms into dirty, funky, blues rock with extended jams. Drawing from a variety of influences including Howlin’ Wolf, Gov’t Mule, Tom Waits, and Albert King, their songs reflect Harris and Mason’s dark and twisted sense of humor, steeped in the two’s old school southern musical background. Currently, DD & J are in the studio working on their first album.
