Known for his “amazing and diversified talent” (Velvet Rope Magazine) and his “indomitable stage presence” (The Ontarion), young multi-instrumentalist Samuel “Sammy Duke” Dlugokecki has built a strong reputation as a reliable session performer in the Southern Ontario* music scene. He has had the opportunity to perform nationwide across a multitude of venues, has been a session player on two Juno-nominated records, and has worked alongside an incredibly wide array of musicians of varying styles.
Inspired by the multi-instrument approach of his musical peer and mentor, Arun Pal, Sammy Duke began experimenting with his original compositions as a "one-man-band" configuration in 2013. He has since expanded his rig to include a number of percussion instruments, and Moog Taurus bass synthesizer pedals, all accompanying his voice and guitar.
“His lyrically thoughtful world-folk-rock fusion sound…similar to the soft voiced spiritual richness of Craig Cardiff and Bruce Cockburn, melded with the breathy vocals of late father-son songsmiths Tim and Jeff Buckley” (Coral Andrews), combined with this setup, has greatly intrigued audiences Canada-wide. Currently, he is finishing his debut EP of original music, to be released at the top of 2017, and has recently started uploading videos to his YouTube channel of one-man-band material.
*Sammy Duke works as a music instructor out of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, and can be contacted for music lessons.
