Duquette Johnston: Cherry Blossom
Selected as one of NPR's Artist to Watch, Duquette Johnston is making a name for himself aside from his previous musical projects [Verbena, Cutgrass]. His last albums as a solo artist are rich in acoustic melodies; his upcoming and fourth album, 'Rabbit Runs A Destiny,' showcases Johnston's more evocative approach to instrumentation - creating a more robust sound than we are used to.
Albanian musician turned producer, Armand Margjeka is in large part responsible for Johnston's more-evolved sound on this record. He was brought on to help produce the record and his efforts are noted - especially when comparing Margjieka's roots-heavy music to that of Duquette's new sound.
'Rabbit Runs A Destiny' will be available on May 21 through Pipe and Gun Records.
