Born in Delaware, Doug began singing at an early age under the encouragement of his father who would accompany him on guitar.  Musical tastes were eclectic in the Repetti house, but Doug was especially drawn to classic rock like the Beatles, Elton John and Billy Joel.  At age 12, Doug began piano lessons and by 19 he was playing in piano bars in Oslo with the encouragement of his Norwegian piano instructor.  After completing his Bachelor of Arts at the University of Delaware, Doug moved to New York City in 2003 to pursue his music career.  He landed gigs at venues across the city including The Cutting Room and The Monster Bar in New York's famed West Village.  In 2005 he began spending his summers on Cape Cod in Provincetown, Massachusetts.  The artists' community there further nurtured his love of live performance and in 2011 he finally realized his dream of becoming a full-time artist, playing regularly at Gifford House Inn and Crown & Anchor (he currently holds residencies at both venues).  His work as a live musician has taken him all over the country.  In 2014 he spent five months working in Hollywood, California at the popular dueling pianos nighclub Howl at the Moon.  He also played a brief stint at their St. Louis location as well as four seasons in Miami peforming at The Cabaret South Beach.  He has worked as an accompanist for other singers including Jonathan Hawkins and Courtney Act.  A graduate of New York's Institute of Audio Research, Doug is also a sound engineer.  His self-produced debut album "Light and Dark Matter" is available on iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, as well as here on
