Duke Special: New Music (at least to me)

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?

    Sure he’s from Belfast, Northern Ireland – my wee country. I’ve seen him in concert supporting Aqualung in Belfast a few years ago. Just him on the piano. Very talented (but weird) individual. 😉

    Hey, he was actually born in my town. Just reading the wikipedia article.
