DOWNLOAD: Dare Dukes + the Blackstock Collection - "Old West Broad" (rough cut)
Savannah, Georgia's Dare Dukes released his well-received debut CD, Prettiest Transmitter of All, in 2008 and he is road-testing some new material prior to going into the studio this summer to record his second disc.
Here is one of the press quotes for Prettiest Transmitter of All:
"Four stars...[Dukes'] melodies are hook-laden but intricate. If forced to choose between a major or minor chord, Dare always chooses the less obvious and more interesting latter...Like [Vic] Chestnutt, he shows a deep affinity for the strangeness and eccentricities in people. The people in Dukes' songs are not losers per se; they are just different, kind of like we all are. And Dukes loves them for that, which makes it very easy to in turn love Dukes."Dare is playing The Living Room on Thursday, January 28th. Dare's set is at 10PM and cover is $7.00.
