Doug Plavin

Drummer Percussionist Vocalist & Fitness Specialist


I'm a drummer and vocalist who plays and dreams in service to the song, and a music teacher who is always in service to the student.

My education at Berklee College of Music taught me to strive for musical versatility while always remaining authentic and true to any musical genre. I've had the good fortune of touring and/or recording with singer songwriters, producers, and music session luminaries including: Joan Baez, Bill Morrissey, Dar Williams, Mary Gauthier, Mark Erelli, Duke Levine (current guitarist w/Bonnie Raitt), John Scofield, Michael Gregory Jackson, Mason Daring, Steven Schoenberg, Deb Talan/The Weepies, and many others. 

I've toured internationally with Dar Williams as the supporting act for Ani DiFranco's Little Plastic Castle tour. My drumming can also be heard on the following film and television scores:

John Sayles' City of Hope (1991) and Passionfish (1992) 

The 1992 ABC television series, Parenthood. The PBS series, American Experience, and on dozens of advertising jingles and station IDs for clients such as Baybank, WPXI, Levitt's, and many others.
