Editorial Reviews

Felice brother goes solo! A new group featuring simone felice of the felice brothers , who recently left his band of brothers to do his own thing. Debut album from stunning new group led by simone felice, who recently departed the felice brothers after originally forming them earlier in the decade. A couple of years older than his brothers, simone was always the leader of the band, although his brother ian wrote and sung more of the songs. An acclaimed poet and author, simone was the more experienced artist of the brothers and the most charismatic performer, and his contributions to the band's output - wonderful songs like 'the radio song' and 'don't wake the scarecrow' - were the sweetest and most poignant. Simone continues with that style of song on the duke & the king's debut album, which is already being hailed as a classic overseas. Less overtly rootsy than the felice brothers, the duke & the king's music is beautiful and big hearted, and should have broad and huge appeal. Comparisons have been made with late-period beatles, simon & garfunkel, neil young, crosby stills & nash, early james taylor and the like. Whilst it certainly should appeal to fans of the likes of fleet foxes, bon iver and iron & wine, there is no reason why it couldn't also have a much broader appeal.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's going to be a touchstone September 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is the solo project (with a partner) by Simone Felice of the amazing and great Felice Brothers. I knew it would be wonderful, but I wasn't quite prepared for what it is. It's one of the most beautiful, gracious, gentle pieces of work any of us have heard in a long, long time. Simone sings like an angel and the music is sophisticated and gorgeous. Years from now, when we've had the treasures of much more Felice music, this will be the original touchstone for what Simone can do all on his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better Than Expected! June 9, 2010
By Randy
Format:Audio CD
WHen I saw that this was a side project of Simone Felice of The Felice Brothers, I was unsure about trying it. I like The Felice Brothers, but their a;bums haven't exactly knocked me out. Pleasant, yes, but not great. Imagine my surprise when this album just blew my socks off! One of the best albums of 2009, it is an Americana masterpiece!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this album October 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard this during WFUVs album of the week when it first came out. I was so mesmerized I sat in my car outside my house until it was finished so I wouldn't miss one note. I bought it that night and haven't stopped playing it since. The songs are spare and lush at the same time and the loose "concept" idea works really well. If you don't buy this cd you will really regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best new sound August 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD
You have to hear it to believe it. Simone Felice, formerly of the Felice Brothers, has a sensitivity and wisdom that comes through every note. My personal favorite is "The Morning That I Get To Hell", for it's humor and it's beat, but "If You Ever Get Famous" and "Union Street" aren't far behind. I'm not a music critic, but this is music worth sharing.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Lose Myself" A Masterpiece December 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Track 05 on this album "Lose Myself" is nothing short of a masterpiece full of raw emotion. It stands out from the rest of the songs and feels like it should be on a totally different album/genre. Unfortunately they don't have a youtube of it or a sample (not even on their website...?). A few other songs of note are "Water Spider", "The Morning I Get To Hell" and "If You Ever Get Famous" however they don't have nearly as much ragged heartfelt emotion as "Lose Myself". (They are very soft almost monotone and seemingly lazy)
