Rock Ridge Music has set December 18, 2012 release date for Matt Duke's new EP, 'Love On A Major Scale.'
'Love On A Major Scale,' co-produced by Jason Spiewak (Pat McGee, Ernie Halter, The Revere) and Dave Pittenger (Allison Weiss, Julia Price, Martin Rivas), is the follow-up to Duke's critically acclaimed album, One Day Die.
Says Duke of the EP: "I have been really looking forward to recording another EP that takes me back to my roots as an acoustic songwriter. No bells or whistles, just a simple reminder to myself and my fans of where I've come from as an artist and how it's still very much a part of who I am. I hope everyone digs the record just as much as I enjoyed creating it!"
Says Rock Ridge Music president Jason Spiewak of Duke's forthcoming release: "Matt Duke is a pure talent, both in terms of his writing and his ability to convey raw emotion vocally. This collection of songs marks an important sea change for Matt, and speaks to his growing ability to take risks and follow his own muse."
Duke also plans to hunker down in two cities in January: he's planning a residency in both New York City (Rockwood Music Hall) and Philadelphia (Tin Angel) after the new year rings in (all dates listed below). Duke is also confirmed to perform at Hotel Carolina: St. Pete Beach in Florida the weekend of February 1-2, 2013. Most recently, Duke has toured with Tony Lucca and opened for Adele in Philadelphia, and he has shared stages with Rocco DeLucca, Sara Bareilles, Sister Hazel, Matthew Mayfield, and Charlotte Martin.
