Doc Mehl

Black Diamond, Southern Alberta, Canada

Recently transplanted from Colorado to Black Diamond, Alberta, Al “Doc” Mehl weaves the history and the mystery of the West into his original “west-clectic” poetry and music. Doc’s poems and musical lyrics have been featured on the website, and his poems have been published in “Rattle” magazine.

Doc’s spoken-word album “The Great Divide” was named “Cowboy Poetry CD of the Year” by both the Western Music Association and the Academy of Western Artists. In the words of songwriter Jon Chandler, “Listening to Doc is like having Lyle Lovett in one ear… and Tommy Smothers in the other!”
