The Gary Douglas Band crafts a powerful statement release with the single “Deep In The Water” to discuss a specific case of injustice.
“Deep In The Water” tells the story behind the infamous case of DuPont poisoning the drinking water of thousands of people. The song comes from the point of view of one of the lawyers who lived through the entire experience.
Speaking on fighting for injustices Douglas said, “Law is about fighting for people who have been exploited or taken advantage of, people who have been harmed and hurt by the powerful elites in our society.”
He disucsses how law connects with music, “Music is just a different medium to get to the same result. These songs, they’re about the same people, their struggles and their lives. Both things, it’s about giving voice to the voiceless.”
Gary Douglas (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Keys), Jeremy Goldsmith (Guitars), Tom Curiano (Drums), Trevor Coen (Bass), and Jessica Antonette (Backing Vocals) bring to life the tragedy of these previous events while also depicting a personal point of view throughout the music video.

“I don’t usually write about my work as an attorney,” he said. “’Deep In The Water’ is an exception. Darrell and I worked really hard on the lyrics, converting my literal experience into something poetic.” Which he’s done exceptionally well with lyrics like “Deep in the water/the truth is lying.”
