Alex MacDougall

Alex MacDougall has been a member of:

Alex MacDougall is an American record producer, and percussionist. MacDougall is best known for being a member of the Christian rock band Daniel Amos in the late 1970s in addition to his production and recording session credits. He was also a member of Selah, The Way, Salvation Air Force, The Richie Furay Band, The Randy Stonehill Band and The Larry Norman Band.

Personal life
Born and raised in Orange County, California, as of 2008 MacDougall and his wife have five children, and five grandsons.

Career
MacDougall toured as part of the Richie Furay Band in 1976, opening concerts for Loggins and Messina, Leon Russell and the Beach Boys, among others. In 1977, he toured as drummer with Andrae Crouch and Terry Talbot before joining Daniel Amos in 1978 for their Horrendous Disc tour. MacDougall became an important part of the sound of the band in the late 70s, providing a second percussion sound inspired by drummers/percussionists Airto Moriera, Russ Kunkle, Ralph McDonald and Harvey Mason. MacDougall left DA during their ¡Alarma! album recording, but continued to provide percussion for the band's albums (and many others) for years, and even reunited with other early members of the band for a 1999 performance in California. During the late 70's he also toured and recorded often with Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill and Tom Howard.

Following his departure from Daniel Amos, MacDougall toured for a year with singer/guitarist/artist Bob Bennett, accompanied by John Patitucci on bass. From '81-'82, he worked as the "nighttime drummer" for Disneyland in Anaheim, California, on the Tomorrowland Terrace, alongside Tom Ranier (keyboards) and his brother Beau (guitar). MacDougall worked for StarSong Records for a time in the 1990s, and was partly to credit (or to blame, depending on your perspective) for The Swirling Eddies' Sacred Cows album, in which the band "mercilessly butchered" CCM hits by dc Talk, Carman, Amy Grant and others.

During his lengthy career, MacDougall has served as VP of Special Projects/EMI Christian Music, GM/Vineyard Music Group and Executive VP/Maranatha! Music. He has created hundreds of best-selling projects in all genres of music, including a 1992 Grammy Award-winning children's title (A Cappella Kids), and several Dove Award-nominated projects. In addition to production and executive production roles, he has played on hundreds of recording projects as a drummer and/or percussionist. In addition to current advisory roles, MacDougall serves as an Adjunct Professor at Dallas Baptist University, as part of the Music Business Degree program.

MacDougall has created and developed music concepts and projects for Time-Life, Guideposts, Reader's Digest, Publishers Clearing House, Avon, EMI/Capitol Special Markets and Integrity Media, Inc. He also worked on the original 3 WOW WORSHIP projects (Blue, Orange, Green), as an A&R and Marketing Committee member. Production and co-production credits also include the Billboard-charting Gospel Goes Classical (DVD and CD), Generation Unleashed, Top 25 Gospel Praise and Worship Songs, It's A Wonderful Christmas and Top 40 Christian Favorites. In 2011 he joined Bill Batstone and Bob Bennett in a recording project entitled, "Jesus Music Again". Jesus Music Again reinterprets some of the great songs from the Jesus Movement of the '70's in a loving tribute. Many guest artists appear as well, including Phil Keaggy and Linda McCrary.
