Focus On: Antje Duvekot

When singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot was a teenager, her world was thrown upside down when her mother remarried and the family moved from Germany to Delaware. Antje spoke very little English and music became a refuge in her confined life. She discovered contemporary folk music by listening to artists including Ellis Paul, John Gorka and Ani DiFranco. She was drawn to the melancholy and deeply emotional songs and funneled her energies into creating her own music. Antje's work has drawn the attention of Paul and Solas founder Seamus Egan who produced her Black Wolf Records release Big Dream Boulevard. As her star continues to rise in her adopted homeland, others are standing up and noticing the richness of voice and story in Antje's music, impressing among others the all-star judges who named her a winner at the 2006 New Folk songwriting competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival.

(This concert was recorded, mixed and mastered by contributing producer, Jimmie Wilson.)

Hi, this is Joachim from Germany, Ive just listened to Antjes concert, and Im really thrilled by her beautiful singing and her authentic humor. "Dandelion" and "Its a long way" are songs that came from heaven and are sung by an angel. I believe she is the most wonderful singing dandelion in the world. Antje, Id love to see and hear you playing live in Germany although I know: Es ist ein weiter Weg nach Deutschland und zurck... Alles Gute fr dich, liebe Gre Joachim
