Lon DuQuette first charted back in the seventies as one half of Charley D. & Milo. After opening for Hoyt Axton, touring with Johnny Rivers and backing Sammy Davis at the Cocoanut Grove, Lon raised a family and penned 16 books on Western Hermeticism. A 2005 documentary on his life led to him picking the guitar back up, performing again and, ultimately, recording two collections of new songs. His work doesn't fall neatly into a specific modern genre, ranging from silly to esoteric, profane, profound, simple - it's all over the map. Story songs, love songs, morality tales, God, the Devil and Jean Harlow - it's all covered here. Lon and his acoustic Larrivee provide the platform, drums, bass, brass and strings are variously added.
Consistently well crafted melodies with eloquent lyrics and solid musicianship.
