Sammy Duke




Happy April, for those who follow the Gregorian calendar!

I am extremely excited to announce that, after several years of tweaking with my original music, and around 100 shows later - including some across Canada - I will be finally recording an EP with Dan Hosh of Catherine North Studios in Hamilton, Ontario, starting in May.

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.  He is presently working on his debut EP of original music, to be released in the last quarter of 2016.


*Sammy Duke works as a music instructor out of Kitchener-Waterloo, and can be contacted for music lessons.
