Thanks for visiting my site. My name is Doug Figgs and I am a Western music singer/songwriter from Lemitar, NM. My musical influences include Country, Western, and Southern Rock. I can perform solo, as a duo with Mariam Funke, or as a trio (Doug Figgs, Jim Jones and Mariam) as "The Cowboy Way". I have 5 CDs currently available at the "Store" on this website. They are "All Because of You", a collection of Western/Americana songs mostly written or co-written by me, "Partners", a very well received album with 3 award winning songs, the award winning Western album "A Cowboy Like Me", "...thinkin' of you" an album I recorded with award winning singer/songwriter Mikki Daniel, and my latest album "Yellow Horse" which is now available through this web site and also from CDbaby, Spotify, Itunes, etc.
