BIO

LOGAN DUKE is a rising singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based out of the NC Sandhills. Born in New Jersey and raised in a bi-cultural environment, Logan discovered a deep connection to music at a very early age. He quickly developed a passion for storytelling through music at the first strum of his guitar.


Folk Music Career: After his first of many military moves from NJ to the other end of the east coast, he was inspired to pick up a guitar at the age of ten after watching the documentary ‘Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis‘.  Since then he has taught himself how to play guitar, drums, bass, mandolin and piano which resulted in doing all the instrumentation and mixing on his recordings. He has ‘almost’ come full circle having had his latest releases mastered by Jason Cupp who works with The Milk Carton Kids after meeting them in July 2022.

The Turning Point:
 After releasing a few songs, he was driven by an insatiable curiosity and a desire to explore new musical horizons. He soon found himself drawn to the world of classical piano while studying for his Associates in Fine Arts. Undeterred by the unfamiliar terrain, Logan immersed himself in the study of classical piano. He approached this transition not as a departure from his folk roots, but as a harmonious evolution hoping to eventually incorporate his unique storytelling skills into the world of classical music.

Current Pursuits:
 Today, Logan’s performances continue to captivate audiences in concert halls and intimate venues. He stands at the intersection of folk and classical, with the hopes of creating a musical tapestry that seamlessly weaves together the warmth of folk melodies with the refined elegance of classical piano.

As Logan continues to evolve, he invites listeners on a transcendent journey, bridging the gap between two distinct worlds and proving that music, at its core, is a universal language that transcends boundaries.

“Duke, a graduating senior from Union Pines High School, began playing guitar in fourth grade and picked it back up, more seriously, in his teens.
His initial efforts were inspired by folk artists, from Bob Dylan to the Milk Carton Kids, and also Dave Rawlings Machine. These days he’s more into art rock or what he describes as alt folk-rock music, playing all of the instruments when he records — guitar, bass, drums, keyboards — and he sings.”

“My new music is more of who I am as a songwriter. I put out three singles before that were more hard rock, pop and punk, but I don’t write like that a lot anymore.” Duke said.

The young musician has been a regular at the Neon Rooster since its doors opened last fall. Duke credits Derrick Numbers, the owner, with cultivating a supportive environment for local musicians.

“It is a place where you can really express yourself as an artist. This town had a need for that. There is a lot of new energy and a lot of long energy as well. That is why I chose to have my show at Neon … being able to play originals and believe in yourself as an artist.” The show on May 19 will be Logan’s first time headlining at Neon Rooster.”
