Mike Doughty, may be best well known as the former frontman of Soul Coughing, but he has come a long way since they broke up in 2000. With a light rock influenced country sound he is definitely worth a listen. His new project Golden Delicious is slated for a mid February release, and from what I have heard so far it should be quite the CD.

As a prelude to the release Mike is embarking on a mini tour with an interesting twist. The Question Jar Show, will feature appearances at small intimate venues and in addition to introducing new material from the upcoming record, Doughty will take requests from the audience and answer questions that fans place in a jar at the venue.

As the press release says ‘ — no question too weird, no topic taboo’. This sounds like fun for everyone except Mike!

You can sample one of his new songs ’27 Jennifers’ here. This single song is a great introduction to a very multi faceted and talented performer. If you get the chance, get out and see this great entertainer, you will not be disappointed. A full list of venues for his tour can be found on his web site.
