Singer-songwriter, Antje Duvekot is poised to unveil her fifth studio album, “New Wild West”, on September 15th. According to Duvekot, this collection of songs marks the pivotal juncture of mid-life and represents a new rung on the ladder of healing from trauma. The songs on “New Wild West” signal a genuine shift in Duvekot’s relationship with some of the enduring themes she has grappled with over the years. “On the whole”, says Duvekot, “my older songs sought to disarm trauma by bluntly acknowledging its destabilizing nature and creating a space in which to exist with that sensation, both for myself and my audiences. In contrast, the newer songs have the teeth and tenacity to openly confront and defy trauma. As such, I feel very warmly towards this collection of songs. They are long overdue dissidents”. Duvekot’s amplified voice in mid-life carries a protective fierceness that resonates across the album. Songs like “Girl on a Wire” and “Evolution” salute the perseverance we all apply to our human journey towards finding our voice. Duvekot says of hers, “I crawled into music as a protective vessel when I was a teenager. It lent me safety and allowed me to stay open and let in more continuous sunlight than I could have, otherwise. I want to pay back that loan. Many of the songs on ‘New Wild West’ do that”.

Yet another testament to the powerhouse that is Antje Duvekot, “New Wild West” is a sonic and lyrical knockout
that marks a newly blazed trail in Duvekot’s songwriting career, celebrating the mid-life transition into a greater
sense of self. As always, Duvekot deftly captures the essence of the collective journey that is the human
condition, and Mark Erelli hits it home with exquisitely executed musical orchestration.

ABOUT THE OPENER: Over the span of six years, three albums, two singles, widespread airplay, and knockout reviews, Bruce T Carroll has established himself as an Americana artist with a social conscience and a deft lyrical touch. Using irony and imagery as tools in trade, Bruce’s work has been described by No Depression magazine as “devilishly brilliant”, “intensely beautiful”, and “a fine commentary on America’s past”. His signature songs When Two Worlds Collide, Fox in the Henhouse, and Lift Your Head Up continue to get good airplay worldwide, spotlighting the refugee crisis and political upheaval at home and abroad. His latest release, “First Bird To Sing” is an exploration of love and loss and “a brilliant album that attacks the dark side with a tac flashlight and hope”, solidifying Bruce’s reputation as a “singular talent that deserves admiration” (Midwest Record)
