I was checking out some stuff on Youtube this evening and came across this guy Duke Special. I was instantly floored. Brilliant voice, great innovative sound, and crazy good music. I would not even know who to compare him to. He is like Counting Crows meets Billy Joel Meets Vaudville Meets Broadway meets uh well…I am gonna have to buy this guys CD. you have to listen to both songs to hear his diverse sound.

Have you heard of him? What do you think?

in random order…my top 5 for the week

1. Isreal Houghton and the new breed – deeper well (say so song ROCKS your face off)

2. DC*B – Remedy

3. Michael Neale – No greater audience (this might be on par to beat vicky beeching for most times on this list)

4. Sara Groves – Add to the Beauty

5 Counting Crowes – August and everything (one of the best…classic greatness)

Sara Groves new CD coming

August 23, 2007 — 7 Comments

If You are a reader on this blog then you know full well how I feel about Sara Groves. In particular her last CD Add to the Beauty. I consider that CD to be one of the top 10 CD’s of the last 20 years. If you haven’t bought it yet…get on it. With that said on her site she announced a new CD

On November 6th, INO Records will be releasing Sara’s new album “Tell Me What You Know”.

Sara says on her site:

“My life has been so changed and challenged in the last couple of years by people who have endured incredible hardship around the world, and by the people who have come alongside them working as what I imagine Jesus intended when he called us His Body. Where I used to see politics, poverty and detached social agendas, I now see people. This album is about people, and the defiance of their hope, it is about freedom, both spiritual and physical, and it is about what I have yet to learn about God from my neighbors who have gone to the places where courage is required, and have found a deeper understanding of Christ and his suffering, his redemption, and his joy.”
