Matt Duke has area roots as well being born in Reston, Virginia. He grew up in southern New Jersey. He will return to the area with a fresh EP of new songs called Love on a Major Scale. Duke usually plays as a solo acoustic artist but don’t let that fool you he sites 90s grunge music as an influence. His songs hit deeper subjects and weaves tales quite different from the 1990s flannel groups. You can find out more about Matt Duke at his facebook page.
