    Antje Duvekot

    Antje Duvekot (AN-tyuh DOO-va-kot) is a German-born, American-raised singer-songwriter who has risen to the top of the competitive Boston singer-songwriter scene. In 2006 with the release of her debut studio CD Big Dream Boulevard, Antje is now attracting national attention. This year, she won the Kerrville (TX) Folk Festival's "Best New Folk Award." Then, in one of America's most competitive music market's, she won the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act of The Year." Next, Antje was picked to represent the 'Best of the Boston's Music Industry' by performing at the prestigious Boston Choice Awards ceremony. The Boston Globe says "Duvekot's first studio CD, Big Dream Boulevard, marks the most convincing debut by any local songwriter since Dar Williams' Honesty Room in 1993. Duvekot's songs feel at once fresh-faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. Like Williams, she believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and she is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience, and isolation into community.”

    Sirius radio DJ and former Rolling Stone music editor Dave Marsh went on record to say "This is a brilliant, brilliant record. As far as I can tell, Antje's the whole package. I've had this reaction once in the past 10 years, and that was the first time I heard Patty Griffin. And the reasons are very similar: that package of a terrific writer and singer, with the instincts to do things right, over and over and over.'' Open: Air Traffic Controller - This will be Dave Munro wiith the three strings. If you haven't seen ATC, check them out. Dave's a great songwriter and performer.
