about

Lady Dug St. Augustine, Florida

Multi-instrumentalist & cosmic jazz-head Amy Douglas (aka Lady Dug) is giant-stepping out with her debut LP. She wears her influences on her sequined sleeve, paying homage to early 90s hip hop, r&b and deep soul. While she attempts these advanced arkestral maneuvers, her introspective lyrics keep firmly grounded & offer a glimpse into the depths of Dug hidden beneath her glittery exterior. ... more

Track Name: Birth of a Lady Dug
Oh the sounds perfected with intent,
By the greatest musicians, past future, and the current present,
Learnin from D most sincere musicians i choose,
You've gat t open yo soul, t find yo own groove

So much Hommage to Our Sun Ra
Spiritual leader, Cosmic Fatha
He said, Music is all apart, of another tomorrow
Das why we sing songs to our bodies sorrow


Things are feelin like D way they should be,
My music My music, be keepin my world spinnin,
Oh you oh so strong, keep dat chin up, cuz you've gat it, goin on,
N from within you'll find a friend, and its our inner awareness,
T whom we truly can depend, Fill yourself up wit positiveness to send


To whom I owe my dues,
Artists who seem t know just what I'm goin through
You see Im eva expanding astronomically,
Self expression t D fullest you see, das where im truly free

To the many musicians in History,
who paved the way for me to see,
A brighter future t make some money,
Whilst I evolve musically.


Things are feelin like the way they should be,
My music My music, be keepin my world spinnin,
Oh you oh so strong, keep dat chin up, cuz you've gat it, goin on,

Track Name: Past Wordz
Your wordz Your wordz, Your Lack of Wordz
Could not help me t understand
Your lack of Sincerity
Has brought me t ma knees, Face in deez handz
But as you see, I've grown since then
Smilin so comfortably, in ma innermos skin

What stage, this Stage, Yes we're all on stage
If you havent realized
Some may Hide in masquerade
They attempt to disguise, how they feel inside
And there is something t B said here
Wordz cannot express
knowing who you are Dear
Will sort out all the rest

Daughter of the purest Moon
Ma aim to make her most Proud
So I sincerley express ma offeringz
Of ma own soundz out loud

Dis is where we grind our time to keep our babies fed
Once I punch dat clock ma life is no longer mine
I am not yo servant though I serve you please don’t cross dat line
To Best accomodate yo wishes Is ma only dream
To elevate expiriences Deliciousness is the theme
Cuz this job aint pretty but really what job is
If people where kinder we wouldn’t go home feeling like garbage

Walk thru the door Realize where you are

Track Name: Singin t Maself
Currently learning of a letting go,
Forgiveness fo friends family n mostly myself
My time here on earth, in dis body, deez frequent distractions of the now Tryin to corrupt me, Naww
Dreamin of ma wishes, of audible being,
Able t filet n grill ma souls inspirations, vibrations,and serve it up fo you
Just tryin to survive, its jus like you and I
Usually I'm singing to myself,
Im gon keep searchin, fo small beauties around me
To ignite my imagination, bound to create,
To make fun an everyday goal, as far as happiness one on one
Ma Happiness comes from creating,
Soakin in ma surrounds t betta understand, less words, more sounds
T create and to bring life, n den to reflect, project, ma insides at all times

Currently learning, of a letting go, ma time here on earth in Dis body
Dreamin of ma wishes, t set myself free,
T be who I am, and who i ought 2 be
To gaze astounded at D endless space, ma Nu vehicle is d cosmic Plane
Wit a firey aim, to find an even greater day, and greater tomorrow
To reach and approach dis journey,
Wit courage in D timeless realm of immortalic day
We just tryin to find our way

My sweetest Yem of golden light, by my side keepin dis spirit alive
Its thru our Sifferent music, dat we can survive
And rise as high as we ever dreamt we could fly

Side steppin D blues High in Platform shoes
Currently leaning of a letting go, singing to myself

(Spiritually freed)Background vox chanting- Check D mic / All u wanna do
Track Name: Eupho D Nu You
You see I was made fo this,
Lovin givin my life my sweet kiss,
Dis imprint, my reflections of perennial bliss,
To project encouragement is what i'm werkin with.


Accepting a growth, Similar to accepting a death,
It is what it is, and certain rituals must come to an end,
T continue to perpetuate dis eva evolving way we take,
Collecting as much knowledge as we roll a long, t keep our Faith
Excited to find what i set my soul t imbibe
All my passions keepin my world intertwined
Doin our best t express these songs t choose our space t create
Self awareness be the only way t reciprocate
T give so much love to help t alleviate
Just so i can respirate wit a lighter plate
And relaxin my mind to keep in dis balance
Stayin true t ma essence,
T lighten dis intensity, i continue onward t enhance d best of me
Forget all d controversies of D past,
Its dat time to be movin forward,
Embracin all these changes continually
And i aint sayin das gon be easy
But my Sweet Tooth told me
Das d only form of savin ma sanity, at d academy of doin me

You see I was made fo this,
Lovin givin my life my sweet kiss,
Dis imprint, my reflections of perennial bliss,
To project encouragement is what i'm werkin with.
You see I was made fo this,

Wit our families makin sure dat we stayin ahead in dis rat race
And all we tryin to do is werk at dat steady pace,
While we building up our surroundings

Track Name: Love Inside
I know a girl, She gives her all,
She has nothing but she still stands tall,
You see this love inside that keeps her Alive
Rejuvenates her soul until she must die

These songs she sings, inside her heart
Will resonate with those who have played a part
With their harmonies and rhythms that flowed in unison
Our souls did connect, such bright visions did reflect
Our sincerity that drove us, Into our cosmic Destiny
With such intensity of what,
Of what was meant to be.

Searching fo ways t soothe her heart,
She decides t set herself apart,
T find d ways to express her deepest art
Equations of sounds n rhythms,
T help her discard, all the things she clings onto
She tends t think too hard,
She chants while she meditates, on words that give her faith
Oh cosmic vibration reverberate through her space,
Lead her t find the cosmic sound in thee
To achieve sweet inner peace
Boom on the shores of her consciousness
Whispers from eternity


Ma insides projecting, dis unconditional love
For those around me, who aint about t give up
T Respect all beings, t inspire progression
T motivate d masses, Das why we're here
T share our souls, imagine life without you dear,
No one could ever, give what you gat
You've gat a lot, Now Broadcast it so as not t seem Foolish
Fo bein all talk and no walk
We all know dat actionz speak louder than words
Be careful wit yo small talk
Dreamz are unreal until you make Dem yo reality

Invest in your soul, your soul
T manifest dis love inside

Invest in your soul, your soul
T manifest dis love inside
Track Name: 2 B Driven

Through our extremities,
Makin our booties bounce, bein our, our favorite remedy
Our porous souls drenched in the rhythm t set yo mind free
Our porous souls drenched in the rhythm t set yo mind fREE

Jus tryin t survive, n how t thrive, on D music dat keeps our souls alive

To be driven, or to be driven Wild, by your Eccentricities
To be driven, or to be driven Wild, by your Eccentricities

Eva evolving spiritual growth, with no need fo wealth
I'm tryin to ...Explore Myself
