Like a musical locomotive hurtling ’round the bend, Union Duke is a Toronto folk quintet that’s taking the world by storm– one captivating performance at a time. Bridging soulful indie rock with bluegrass and country, these city-slickin’ whipper-snappers
unleash soaring vocal harmonies over heel-stomping beats, in a growing collection of irresistible songs that set hearts and dancefloors ablaze.
Union Duke’s 2014 release Cash & Carry was recorded in a log cabin in the Ontario woods and features songs of love, loss, and a cheap shirt.
On the heels of 2013’s Bandits & Bridges, these five energetic troubadours delivered their second self-produced record in as many years,
and their runaway train shows no signs of slowing. Currently, they are working on their third studio album scheduled for release in
Summer 2016.As sweet as their albums have proven to be, the real buzz surrounding Union Duke has come from their energetic
live performances. Touring across Canada these past few years, they have left a vast trail of amazement in their wake,
selling out venues as headliners and topping the must-see lists at countless festivals including TURF, Summerfolk, and Mariposa (2 years in a row).
With banjos rambling, guitars wailing, and superb melodies shining through each tune, an infectious magnetism emanates from every stage they’ve had the privilege to grace.
The legend of Union Duke begins well over a decade ago, when founding members Matt, Ethan and Jim were drawn together
by their teenaged hooliganism and a penchant for timeless music. They skipped class to jam on battered instruments in an old workshop,
wrote as many songs as they could conjure, and soon enough were sneaking into bars around Toronto to play gigs at the tender age of 13.
Their rough and rowdy dynamic was matched by newest additions Will and Rob, natives of Port Hope and Red Deer respectively,
and the five road-ready pals haven’t looked back since.
