Jimmy Dukelow singer/songwriter, first published song, Angels, Roses and Stars (1997). He has been writing music and playing the guitar since age twelve. Has written and recorded music of all genres. Jimmy has written and recorded ambient music performed on classical guitar. Published two such albums in 2001: Peace and Ambience and Wish Disc.
Jimmy eventually drifted away from music for a few years to devote more attention on his career as a podiatric physician and surgeon. Although, his flame for creating music was at a flicker, he performed in a cover band playing guitar and bass. People immediately noticed that he had a sound about him. Around 2010 undesirable changes in the health care field drove Dukelow closer and closer to music. The bad economy with an increase in competition in his field brought about a critical nose dive with but a grim chance of recovery.
In 2010 Dukelow conceived of a musical endeavor which he titled "Le Mystique" Which in English means "The Mystic" The name inspired by his French Huguenot ancestry. It is a love of and respect for the French performing arts, i.e..., The Moulin Rouge, cabaret and burlesque performances. Sexuality as an art form, as the French are true masters. Not to mention the mystery and enchantment of the mystical.
In 2011 Le Mystique became a published name in the music world. LM established a presence at Reverbnation.com in September of 2011. Since that time, Le Mystique has claimed the number one spot in Indie Rock, both nationally and globally several times. The first works were published as an album titled "The Path" Though not very successful, Dukelow felt this was "the path'...,"The Way" But discouragement saw it as "The path of failure". Jimmy D would never be discouraged enough to quit. But in fact, discouraged enough to succeed. He has been noticed by the music industry and contacted by major recording labels and included in prestigious music groups on Twitter. They must be expecting something and know something.
Jimmy Dukelow plays all the instruments and sings all of the vocals on his tracks. He is very creative and is amazingly diverse in his compositions. His talent is respected by professionals in the music industry and is being considered as a member of an elite music licensing team in Los Angeles. As such, JD focused on instrumentals for 2015 and felt that vocals were not gaining any ground. Although this point of view would soon change.
Through trial and error and much discouragement, JD polished his production technique to a shine. The subject matter very hot (So Le Mystique!) The riff, the music, the production...,The song! Jimmy had found his sound for Le Mystique!
Bon Appetit! 🐩
