New Album… New School Pictures!


As the “Touch” album is currently in mix, and the band is literally spread out all over the planet due to COVID, the art wizards have requested some head shots so they can create some magic.  I’m going to need some full blown warlocks.  See you all soon!

A little taste…

Check it.  A leak from the forthcoming Touch reunion album…


Work, work, work work…

We are TRYING to get this album done in time for the summer…. if only we could stop laughing all the time we MIGHT get some work done.

Thanks to everyone for all of your notes and good wishes.  What we have so far… is frankly pretty damned awesome.

Perhaps some leaks to follow soon… 

Always My Best, Doug H

Yes… the rumors are true. There is a Touch reunion being worked on.

For those that remember, Touch was Doug’s first major label band which produced such Billboard Top 40 songs as “Call Me When The Spirit Moves You,” “Don’t You Know What Love Is,” “Black Star” “There’s A Light,” and of course others, which appeared on their freshman album “Touch” on Atlantic/Atco records.

These many years later, (left to right) Doug, Glenn, Craig and Mark are in the studio as of this writing… doing what it is that they do, thanks to the interest and encouragement of their new record label. While label details and release dates cannot be discussed at this time…. watch this space for further developments.

Doug will not be touring for 2015 season.

3/9/15 – Regrets friends and fans…. but Doug has elected not to tour this 2015 season and has stepped back from Rhett Tyler & Early Warning in order to concentrate on his music video promotion company,   No worries, no drama.   Just a decision to take a little break for this year, and then perhaps later see what happens down the road.   

Sorry to perhaps disappoint, but look for some fun to come.  

Best to you all!  See you down the road!

Here we go again!…
