Return With

Beyond the Blue

out June 24 2014

 

The Duhks are back and set to release their long-awaited new studio album Beyond the Blue on June 24 2014.  From some reports, the album shows the band in the best form of its thirteen-year career.  Rejuvenated by a two-year hiatus and energized by the return of vocalist Jessee Havey and the addition of new members, fiddler Rosie Newton, drummer/percussionist Kevin Garcia, and guitarist/bouzouki player Colin Savoie-Levac, The Duhks founder Leonard Podolak found an amazing pallet of inspiration for the new project.

“All of the people who have been in the band over the years, including non-touring founding members Tania Elizabeth and Jordan McConnell (who both appear on the album) have had a hand in shaping our sound and direction. 

The goal with the new record was to draw on everything we’ve learned over the years and everything we know about where we want to take the music now and create something as fresh, exciting and forward thinking as possible.” 

Toward that end, the band turned to the rising production team of Mike + Ruthy (Mike Merenda and Ruth Unger of The Mammals), who brought a progressive approach to production that was still firmly rooted in the traditions of folk music.

The Duhks will be on display at the Americana Festival in September 2014.  Here’s a sample of what we might expect.
