Duke Garwood is a London based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
With an impressive career spanning over twenty years, Garwood has toured and recorded with a variety of artists including The Orb, Seasick Steve, Josh T. Pearson, Sir Richard Bishop, Archie Bronson Outfit, Wooden Wand, Wire, Alexander Tucker, The Gutter Twins, Kurt Vile and Mark Lanegan. He has released a number of critically acclaimed albums including ‘Holy Week'(2005), ‘Emerald Palace’ (2007), ‘The Sand That Falls’ (2009) & ‘Dreamboatsafari’ (2011).
In 2013, Duke Garwood releases an album in collaboration with Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens Of The Stone Age, Soulsavers), ‘Black Pudding’.
Lanegan and Garwood met in 2009 while playing on the same bill and Garwood was invited to play guitar on Lanegan’s ‘Blues Funeral’ album. “Duke Garwood is one of my all time favorite artists,” said Lanegan. “Working with him has been one of the best experiences of my recording life.”
Garwood has often been described in the press as Lanegan’s “spiritual cousin across the Atlantic waters.” He has been widely praised as a master bluesman, with The Quietus saying “The combination of Garwood’s murmured vocals and the sound he gets out of his guitar – which ranges from a rolling, loose finger-picking to shuddering howls of feedback – has a hypnotic effect” and The Mirror dubbing him as “London’s leading exponent of the wheezy broke-down blues.”
