ANTJE DUVEKOT has solidified her reputation as one of Boston's best singer-songwriters, winning some of the top songwriting awards including: the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and the prestigious, Kerrville (TX) "Best New Folk Award," as well as the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act" - three of the top prizes in the singer-songwriter world. She has had extensive touring experience, playing in major folk festivals here and in Europe.
According to The Boston Globe, "Duvekot has gotten hotter, faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh-faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community."
Big Dream Boulevard, her debut studio release, was voted "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top 10 Releases of the Year" by National Public Radio's, Folk Alley. Her follow-up albums "The Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" were produced by Richard Shindell and featured other "folk royalty" such as John Gorka, Lucy Kaplansky and Mark Erelli.
Neil Dorfsman, the producer of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Sting says, "When I first heard Antje, I knew I was witnessing something very special. She creates an entire, detailed world in verse, and takes you there with beautiful and understated melody. Her songs are stunning paintings of color and shade and always generate the heat and light that real art should."
