I came, I saw, I laid it bare for the world to see
It was not uncommon in the ‘60s for artists such as Bob Dylan or Johnny Cash to see wrong and share what they saw with their fellow Americans. Equally absorbing but of a different bent were the same kind of in your face songs by Jimi Hendrix and a little girl from Texas named Janis Joplin. All were trail blazers as everyone of them stood out for their sense of righteousness and each in their own way delivered the messages of their day. Who can forget Jimi’s over the top rendition of the Star Spangled Banner or Dan Fogerty’s verse, “I ain’t no senator’s son”. God bless radio for being brave enough to air such ground breaking songs when they found them. The thanks also goes to the artists and their labels for having the intestinal fortitude to record them in the first place. Duffy Kane sees things that aren’t quite right and in that same historical sense lays it all out for not just America to hear but in today’s global setting, the world.
Soon Todd Glazer Promotions will introduce Duffy Kane’s latest release “Dead Man Walking” to radio stations all around America and if lightning strikes twice America will stand up and take notice of another American troubadour who is hell bent on standing tall in a time of great change. Duffy Kane is a prolific song writer and to say he slays an axe with precision would be an understatement. This guitar slayer slash songwriter simply cannot help himself, what’s inside has got to come out.
Mr. Kane is a veteran of what is known as the Americana Blues scene today. It wasn’t known as that back when he started sharing his talents on stage - just the same as it wasn’t known as that for other roots performers back then either. Duffy’s paid his show biz dues and toured with the greats for years all the while writing and releasing his own brand of riveting in your face songs. Just as Jimi turned on “The Star Spangled Banner” Duffy likewise has given America a rousing and touching “America the Beautiful” and it will be released just in time for radio spins on the Fourth of July.
Duffy Kane is an interesting individual. He heard a new sound in his head and sought to capture it and so his only resolve was to build his own guitar, manufactured today as the “Telebastard”. Duffy wanted to be closer to the world of songwriting and recording so he has just announced the presence of his new recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee. And, as laid out above he sees indignities and injustice, remembers an America of another era and cannot help but share what was as though it could be again. “Dead Man Walking” definitely has its relevance as it is both a bit yesterday and rife with today’s sound. Plus, if everything Duffy has going on isn’t enough the famed European booking agent Peter Holmstedt is lining up show dates across Europe. Finally, the bow on top of it all is Duffy’s latest management moves which are being handled by none other than Michael B. Sutton, President, Imerica Entertainment, one of Michael Jackson’s producers and longtime Motown music man that ranks right up there with The Funk Brothers. This is not Mike Sutton’s first rodeo. His credits are numerous and his modesty is prevailing – he has a goal: share Duffy Kane with the world.
