“On our daily walks down to the beach, we would stand at the edge of water and stare off at the mountains in the distance. We would always be overcome by a feeling of calmness which harkened back to the transformative experience of first seeing the Rocky Mountains from a tour van so many years ago—The mountain peaks felt like nature’s radio towers, broadcasting a healing energy off in every direction.”, folk-rock duo Duke & Goldie lamenting the inspiration for their newest single “Rocky Mountain Feeling”.
This country rocker may feel miles apart from their last softer release “Courage“, but a few key elements keep them bonded. Connectivity, beauty, indelible melodies, and nostalgia. And these ingredients drench both tracks in authenticity and, arguably more importantly, the respect for letting their memories breathe through these songs forevermore. Like souvenirs for us listeners from these two songwriters’ secluded experiences. The gifts that keep on giving…
With two stunning singles, Duke & Goldie’s forthcoming self-titled EP (May 12th, 2023) is starting to sound pretty damn good… You can stream the raw beauty and the 70s country-rock sounds of “Rocky Mountain Feeling”, here at the GTC.

“Duke & Goldie’s 6-song self-titled EP (May 12th, 2023) was recorded in Toronto with producer and pedal steel ace Aaron Goldstein (Julianna Riolino, Daniel Romano, Kathleen Edwards) with rhythm pros Anna Ruddick and Dani Nash. The EP charts out landscapes and stories from thrilling rocky mountain highs, to mysterious remote deserts and walks the line barefoot between warm-folk storytelling and mystical country twang. All while asking deeper questions about the duo’s place in the land they love so much.” – bio
