Product Notes

DOOZY sounds like a band you once might've heard in a shady downtown bar, on a Parisian sidewalk, or wafting from a Philco wireless on a hot summer evening. Dreamy and quirky original music that's heavy on the lyrics and vocals, backed by an eccentric instrumental style. Music that begs for a couple of rounds of cocktails and a steamy love affair. The mood is sultry but sweet, wry but not jaded, frequently amusing. Doozy transports you to another time but the themes are timeless: the pursuit of love, liquor, and happiness, which rarely seem to come in the right amounts. DOOZY grew out of singer Christie Mellor's lifelong fondness for the music of the 1920s and '30s and her penchant for memorizing every record she could find by the Boswell Sisters, Ruth Etting, Bing Crosby, and Annette Hanshaw. In her other life she's a published author, actor, and illustrator, but a band was born when she and her neighbor, documentary producer and guitarist Doug Freeman, another fan of early jazz and popular music, started playing together. They roped in three long-time friends and DOOZY was complete: first to join was artist, filmmaker, and fez-wearer John Allen on clarinet; then writer, director, and arranger Peter Hastings on upright bass; and finally jazz and classical pianist Henry Spurgeon on accordion. After gigging around Los Angeles for a year or so, Christie and Doug began to write and record their own songs together, and the result is DOOZY's first CD of original music, 'HEAVY SUGAR.' When not on the road, DOOZY can be heard dishing out their own lush and loopy brand of Prohibition pop and Depression-era cheer-featuring songs from 'HEAVY SUGAR'-every Thursday night at the historic Culver Hotel in Los Angeles.
