Songwriter and performer Duke Special is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A piano-based songwriter with a romantic style and a warm, distinctly accented voice.
He has recently been writing for various projects ranging from a theatre production of Huckleberry Finn to his collaboration with traditional supergroup Ulaid, so expect glimpses into these new adventures, as well as songs from his last 12 releases.
Duke Special's latest studio album Hallow is entirely based on the poetry of Longley, full of gentleness, honesty, mischief and love, and peppered with a cast of artists, animals, flowers, friends and long forgotten soldiers. As ever, Duke Special is mining a new seam of inspiration, always trying to get to the bottom of what it means to be human.
By nature Duke Special is a curious person. He is curious about theatre, books, music, poetry, art, love, life, redemption, death, 78RPM records and most recently, gardening! All of this is evidenced by his releases which are a map of his passions.
