John D'Anna Arizona Republic Published 8:00 AM EST Dec 28, 2018 If you're just joining us, this is Chapter 6. You'll get more out of this story if you start from the beginning. Read Chapter 1 here. See the previous part, Chapter 5, here. A family in search of a sibling On Oct. 1, 2016, I received an email from a woman in Oregon who had read my 2011 story about the Hatbox Baby. Glenda Poling and her sisters were looking for a sibling who, according to family lore, had been taken away from their mother in, of all things, a hatbox.

Denton-based singer-songwriter Doug Burr has been a regular performer around these parts for quite some time now. As a multiple Dallas Observer Music Award winner, and with an output that stretches back over a decade, he’s become a fixture on the local scene and a revered mentor to those just beginning their musical odysseys. Burr’s lilting, ethereal voice carries lyrics that are peppered with spiritual and intimate details. Rooted in folk traditions, his songs, including fan favorites like “Slow Southern Home” and “Graniteville,” as well as pretty much the entirety of his O Ye Devastator and Pale White Dove albums, are ripe for multiple, in-depth listens. This month, Burr is back on the scene with a new song, elusively titled “3356 Romeo.” Gentler and a bit understated compared with some of his more recent hopped-up work, the track flows along beautifully for four-plus understated minutes. It’s a track that longtime fans will … [Read more...] about Doug Burr Returns With a Sparkling New Track, “3356 Romeo”
