Premiere: Doug Hoyer – “Real Problems”


Our friend Doug Hoyer keeps us on our toes with his danceable pop grooves and honest and relatable lyrics that make us laugh, cry, and sometimes do both. We’re proud to premiere a song from Hoyer’s forthcoming album Dream Life due out September 8th

“Real Problems” is packed with strings, backing vocals (and drums) from Tasy Hudson and a swinging rhythm that reminds us why Hoyer stands out so much. Writing to us about his song, Hoyer describes it as “a song about realizing that the best way to help your friends with their issues of depression/poverty/relationships is obvious – listen to them; to genuinely be open to what they’re saying. Sometimes that’s the best you can do.”
