SO Recordings USA has the pleasure of releasing the Duke & the King’s new album concept in the US today and we are all very excited to be crossing the pond and taking this exceptional album to the masses.
Here is what the critics are saying about the self titled album:
“I doubt you’ll hear a more authentically moving album this year than The Duke & The King’s domestic debut. … their live show is a powerful, instrument-switching mix of top-shelf troubadour-era showmanship and an old-fashioned revival meeting.” –Village Voice
…this U.S. debut arrives like a greatest-hits collection from about 40 years ago. A soulful strut, abetted by a backing singer who’s a ringer for Sam Cooke, plus subtle psychedelic touches demonstrate why they don’t call it classic rock for nothing.” –Spin
“…harmonious and sweetly melodic quartet…When listening to their folk-rock songs like “Shaky” and “Shine On You,” you can just imagine floating with them down a river, accepting whatever journey lies ahead.” -Performer magazine
“The Duke & The King have deserved the praise that many have lavished on them.” –Consequence of Sound
