Dougie is best known as the bassist, songwriter and vocalist in the hugely successful pop-rock back McFly. Most recently, after McFly’s tenth anniversary in 2013, they teamed up with members of Busted to form super group “McBusted”. They performed throughout the UK on a full arena tour of 34 shows to rave reviews in the Spring of 2014, and headlined a concert in London’s Hyde Park in July of the same year.
A self-titled Album was released in December 2014 and a second UK tour is scheduled for Spring 2015.
A true creative with his own maverick style, in 2011 Dougie founded his own clothing and accessories brand ‘Saint Kidd’. Ecologically sound, with a meticulous attention to detail and a re-working of nautical motifs, the range includes t-shirts, vests and accessories.
Dougie is also an accomplished writer. He and his McFly bandmate, Tom Fletcher, have created a series of children’s books –‘The Dinosaur that pooped….’ which has proved very successful with three published to great acclaim.
