His journey so far has seen him taking on projects as diverse as diverse as writing the theme tune for the Irish Sesame Street to writing the music for and appearing in Deborah Warners critically acclaimed 2009 production of Bertolt Brechts Mother Courage and Her Children at Londons National Theatre. From presenting a documentary on the life and times of 50s megastar Ruby Murray to being commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to write a series of original songs based on photographs for their exhibition of the photographers Stieglitz, Steichen, and Strand. From performing with orchestras such as the Ulster and RTE Concert orchestras, to making the first recording of an unfinished musical by Kurt Weill based on the novel Huckleberry Finn. Diverse indeed. Duke Special is currently finishing off his next studio album, due for release in 2015, and he has once again decided to work with Pledge Music to help fund and promote this release. He then returns to Ireland for a run of solo live shows in January & February 2015, where he will unveil for the first time some of the material from the new album.Attached images

    Have fun in Milwaukee- Be sure to visit the Calatrava Art Museum down at the lake front. Best that Milwaukee has to offer- besides beer.
