Matt Duke presents his debut album 'Winter Child,' which was co-produced by Stewart Lerman (Loudon Wainwright, Dar Williams) and Steuart Smith (The Eagles, Shawn Colvin). This record tackles a number of topics ranging from self-destructive behavior ("To Whom It May Concern"), to casualties of inner city violence ("One Small Bird"), to the mourning of a loved one ("Don't Ask for Too Much"). "Tidal Waves," one of the forthcoming singles from 'Winter Child' and "Yellow Lights," one of the record's closing tracks, channel Duke's commentary on religion and politics, while "Ballroom Dancing" displays Duke's penchant for great literature with his ode to Hemingway's short story, "Hills Like White Elephants."
