    Digital Music Doctor was founded by Clark Murray who has produced four albums over the past decade and is a voting member of The Recording Academy (Grammy). The first two, Coeur du Soleil and Yosemite Journey featured New Age stylings. He then turned to the Swing era and created Big Band Swing arrangements of traditional melodies for Swing Out America and Swing Out Santa.
