Album Notes
With influences as diverse as the cosmos is wide, the music that Duane Allen Harlick creates is both a testament to his roots and a calling to those who will follow. Born and raised in suburban Detroit on Motown and Soul, Duane migrated through Jazz, Rock, Country, Blues and Gospel on his journey towards becoming an award winning "Vocalist's Vocalist", "Guitarist's Guitarist" and "Songwriter's Songwriter". His songs reflect a sense of introspection, absurdity, poignancy and sometimes a hint of naivete, yet with a very clear and common point of reference for the listener to grasp. The songs often leave audiences with a broad sense of emotions ranging from "Been there, done that" or "Did he just say what I thought he said?" to "Could someone please explain to me what he is talking about in the second verse?" But always, the listener is lifted to a place of resolve; an understanding that there is a choice we all make: to live passionately, or merely endure the alternative.

To see Duane live is further confirmation of that choice. A dynamic performer with outstanding instrumental and vocal ability, his songs come to life with an electric energy commonly (and affectionately) referred to as "reckless abandon". His band's performance style has no walls. It is right in your lap, powerful and magnetic, often jaw-dropping, sometimes overwhelming. The "duaneband" creates a hub of energy that draws the listener in and sets the magnificent wheel in motion. The music is captivating, the songs are embracing and the roar is heart pounding.

A magical inspiration of totally original material
A must have CD. Down is get down! Rockin' the Cradle is GREAT. Stong is so powerful. You will enjoy everything in between. The variety is so enjoyable. These musicians really support Duane's extreme talent on the powerful vocals. His best writing effort published to date.dmk

Jim Mead

Outstanding creativity!
Duane's songs are stories attached to incredibly creative music. They are better than songs! This is one of the best indie albums of the last ten years for sure. No collection should be without this fantastic CD.
