The music of D.W. Doucet packs a big punch, but it all comes from just one person. The Fort Collins-based blues singer plays guitar while he adds percussion with his feet. (In this session, the songs feature the sounds of anvils and chains.) The one-man-band's debut album is "As I Roam Across A Dark Blue Night," based on Doucet's upbringing in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Doucet visited the CPR Performance Studio to play some of his songs. He also spoke with Jeremy Petersen about how he decided to play solo, finding one of his instruments on the side of the road in Massachusetts, and the Canadian island where he wrote "As I Roam Across A Dark Blue Night."
