A true advocate for honest and realistically complicated lyrical narratives, New Orleans’ guitarist and vocalist Andrew Duhon brings the marks of a troubadour into the twenty-first century. Duhon released his debut album back in 2009, following it up with a couple more installments, not the least of which was the Grammy-nominated The Moorings (from 2013).
In the five years that have passed since The Moorings, Duhon’s maturation as a songwriter has coincided with his own narrative of finding out just how complicated true love can really be. Serving Duhon as what may be “the last letters I ever write her”, the eleven-track album False River finds middle ground between blues, rock, folk and of course, candid and complex lyricism. False River was released just last Friday, and you can treat yourself with the tale of ending a relationship early on as the best possible option – “Let You Down”.
