GUST went along to the QMU to film Dougie Crosbie as part of Coffeehouse Sessions. Dougie is a unique guitarist and singer-songwriter. The self-release of his debut E.P. ‘Choices and Ambitions’ earlier in the year, turned some heads to say the least, considering his background of Rock music with his band Darkwater. Dougie’s individual song writing style and melodies are very different from the norm, greatly suited to his voice. He has always got a lot to give musically and this is the beginning of a new songwriting pilgrimage where he is singing and playing an acoustic style loaded with his usual finesse and intrigue.

More information about Dougie can be found on his website at or on his Facebook page.


Coffee House Sessions is a new platform for both breaking and established artists to reach students on their home ground. Curated by Huw Stephens from Radio 1, Coffee House Sessions is the first project of its kind that brings live music back on to university campuses via a truly engaging format for artists and students alike. Consisting of 40 universities from across the UK, Coffee House Sessions delivers two separate acoustic shows a day for the artist over a 10 day period.
