"The music of Brixton-based bluesman Duke Garwood is to my ears much more blues than the majority of blues music being made today in any nation. I doubt more than 40 people in the US have heard of him. So what? His music still sounds like his music."

No surprise then that Seasick Steve asked Duke to support him on one of his tours in 2008, and to perform the same role on a recent gig in Paris. Steve dubbed him a "deep machine"!
