A few shots from the latest session at Stawhouse Studios in Oxfordshire, working with the talented producer/engineer/beard-wearing Rowland Prytherch. We’ve almost finished three tracks so far and I can’t wait for you to hear the results. The frosty Oxon countryside … Continue reading →
Awesome review of ‘The Garden’ from the chaps at PaperWingsMedia.
“A lonely electric guitar echoing throughout the room. A primal Stomp. A close-up, heartfelt and deep vocal performance. This are the main components of Jefferson Duke’s The Garden.
This song is soothing and minimalistic, yet there is a tension that leads to a climatic progression as the song goes on. Jefferson’s whispered vocal melodies turn into a liberating howl that sends chills down my spine.
As opposed to adding layer after layer, Jefferson makes a clever and minimal use of his looper, placing different riffs into the song with taste and attention to detail. The song is available for free download. Don’t miss it!”
Jefferson Duke has been confirmed for the Phoenix Stage on Saturday 13th September at Exeter’s Acoustica Festival.
This year’s festival of alt-folk, folktronica and Americana – music of acoustic origin – takes place at six venues and across eleven stages. Tickets are available for individual nights or for Friday & Saturday combined.
Another two festivals in the diary. Oh yeah! It’s gonna be a summer of portaloos, mud, unpredictable weather and staying up past my bedtime.
First up is Nozstock in Bromyard, Herefordshire on 1-3 Aug. Currently headlined by the awesome Roots Manuva and Fun Loving Criminals. I’ll be taking to the bandstand at 5pm on the Saturday.
Later in the month (30-31 Aug) I’ll be playing Rock The Farm at the Chase Distillery in Hereford. Their line-up is still to be fully confirmed, but Huw Stephens and The Cuban Brothers are already on the bill.

A festival built from a curious amalgamation of performance, art, electronic supersounds and good old-fashioned guitar-strumming and drum-bashing.

Rock the Farm, the boutique festival from Chase Distillery is this year on August 30th to 31st, for the first time, opening to the public. Now in its third year, RTF is situated in the picturesque Chase Distillery grounds and surrounding Rosemaund farm.
Another festival confirmed. This time a boutique family event celebrating the longest day of summer high up on The Chiltern Hills of South Oxfordshire. It may be the furthest point from the sea but there will be a hot, holiday feel to this event, sparking the epitome of summer with a weekend of enlightened entertainment and the best sunset for miles!
