Mike Doughty is an American indie and alternative rock singer- songwriter from Kentucky. The former frontman of Soul Coughing has come a long way since the break up of his band in 2000. Shortly after the split, Doughty transformed into a solo performer accompanied by his acoustic guitar. Doughty sings stories as he utilizes an eclectic mix of sounds and instruments to compliment his expressive voice. His direct and personal lyrics are a result of his profound ability to write. Earlier this year, Doughty released a second book, The Book of Drugs, a chronicle about his life with Soul Coughing and his struggles with addiction.
The beginning of 2012, Mike Doughty released the two-disc album “The Question Jar Show” featuring an album of live performances. Check out Doughty performing “Rising Up” in the video below!
