With the release of his debut album 'The Orchid Room,' award-winning singer songwriter Charles Duke continues exploring his musical pen and expanding his sound. The album, part auto-biographical, was recorded as solo piano and voice project just outside of New York City on a brisk overcast autumn day. The songs had been both lived and lived with, written over the span of several years.
While performing with bassist Dan Martinez and drummer Ismael Baiz this summer, "Distance," a sensual pining love song from the album took on a different life. Duke says, "We speak about music as a universal language. There are these moments in music -in live performance- where it all makes sense. It takes an audience, listening musicians, the right song, the right place, and the right time. Then, there's the vibe."
