At the age of 19, he became a member of the heavy metal band Deadly Blessing from Turnersville, New Jersey, with which he wrote and recorded songs for their first album, titled “Ascend from the Cauldron”, on New Renaissance Records in 1988.
In late 1989, he decided to leave the band and moved to New York City.
In the summer of 1990, Douglas auditioned for the German hard rock singer Doro Pesch and was chosen among many candidates. Douglas has been the bassist of Doro's band since then and recorded several albums with her, touring often in Europe as well as rest of the world.
Nick Douglas has also worked with Blaze Bayley's band BLAZE for the tours of 2004 and 2005. In 2005, he also played bass for Chris Caffery on his “Faces” tour and at the end of the same year he participated in a reunion of Deadly Blessing for some live performances and the release of an album containing rare and previously unreleased material.
In 2007, Douglas played bass on one track on Chris Caffery’s third solo album “Pins and Needles”, afterwards going on tour with both Caffery and Doro.
He also started making plans to release a new solo CD, to which he devoted time to in the breaks between touring.
“Regenerations” was recorded and produced mostly at Nick’s own studio. Nick also played nearly all instruments by himself. The result is a contemporary rock album featuring 11 catchy tracks with real hit potential. The songs were written over a 15 year period. And now Nick thought it was the right time to record them all for a solo album.
