The Duhks are reunited and rejuvenated on their "superb" (Relix) new record, Beyond The Blue, out today, and are ready to reclaim their place as one of Canada’s premiere artists of the neo-folk revivalist era. Produced by Mike + Ruthy (The Mammals), the 12-song album shows The Duhks in the best form of their 13-year career. Featuring founding members Leonard Polodak (banjo/lead vocals) and Jessee Havey (lead vocals), the new album welcomes three new members to the lineup, Rosie Newton (fiddle), Kevin Garcia (drums/percussion), and Colin Savoie-Levac (guitar/bouzouki).
The Duhks’ cohesive blend of different downhome styles is already turning heads. The Huffington Post proclaims Beyond the Blue a "tasty potpourri of cultural influences, styles and substance," and No Depression dubbed it "amazing." The record has already been feature in CMTEdge’s Top 10 Americana Summer Picks and Folk Alley’s New Music Picks for June 2014. The title track debuted at #26 on AMA Chart and as the #1 most added single, and also debuted on Folk-DJ (#51) and Roots Music Report (#5) radio charts.
