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.
