Taken from his 2nd full-length album My Element, “Persistent Thoughts of You” is Americana at its best. Beautiful fingerstyle guitar and a refreshing use of borrowed chords and fluctuating tonal centers are reminiscent of artists like James Taylor, while resonant and reflective vocals draw parallels to Iron & Wine. Utilizing fiddle and sweet vocal harmonies, Douglas adds just enough material to make this a genuinely gripping track that doesn’t stray a step from its organic roots. Telling the story of a musician on the road who misses his loved ones, “Persistent Thoughts of You” is a short and simple tune full of feeling and that warm tone that really makes a piece of Americana songwriting last in your mind.
