WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Antje Duvekot has solidified her reputation as one of America's top emerging singer songwriters with "Big Dream Boulevard", her debut studio release. The CD was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish super group, SOLAS. The project was released on acclaimed songwriter Ellis Paul's label, Black Wolf Records and has quickly attracted international attention for Antje. This release was voted "1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top 10 Releases of the Year" by National Public Radio's, Folk Alley. "This is a brilliant, brilliant album," says former Rolling Stone music editor Dave Marsh. "I have had this reaction once in the last 10 years and that was the first time I heard Patty Griffin."
Adam Ezra, an experientialist as much as a musician or songwriter, has spent time living out of a van, farming in Canada, volunteering for the relief effort in Kosovo, and practicing environmental geography in South Africa. Whether it been as kitchen hand or carpenter, teacher, athlete, or traveler, Ezra crams it all into the music, always challenging our perspective and often teetering somewhere between the ballsy rocker and sensitive poet.
