It’s about change and the power to change. It’s about metamorphosis and evolution. It’s about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. It’s about recognizing your potential. It’s about self-doubt and inaction. It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about you and me and the others. It’s about the choices we make. It’s about finding the poetry and avoiding the cliché. It’s about being the solution, not the problem. It’s about showing weakness to be strong. It’s about digging through your dirt to look for diamonds. It's about claiming your right to think unacceptable thoughts. It’s about boredom and the things we do to drive it away. It’s about being on your own so you can be with people. It’s about knowing what it means to be human and what it might mean one day. It’s about the parts and the sum of the parts. It's about the music and the message: together, one and the same. It’s about bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. It’s about opening-out and never, ever dying. But most of all it’s about love, every kind of love. Love is the answer.

Duke Garwood is a contemporary English composer and multi-instrumentalist. Hailed as a "rock’n’roll shaman” by Robert Plant. The Duke has been around since 1994, having recorded and released four solo albums, touring and collaborating with many artists including Archie Bronson Outfit, Kurt Vile and Seasick Steve. He just released the critically-acclaimed album 'Black Pudding' with Mark Lanegan, on Heavenly and Ipecac Records, and was invited by Savages to play alto clarinet on their debut album's closing track 'Marshal Dear’. The band then asked The Duke to open on their upcoming American tour and to celebrate the occasion, Savages’ producer Johnny Hostile will join him on stage, creating the perfect soundtrack to their coast-to-coast roadtrip.
