American singer/songwriter Duffy Kane looks and sounds like the next big American hero, but when reading his bio it becomes clear that we are dealing here with a musician who has been playing guitar for a few decades and he has already released 6 albums in the past 20 years, so Duffy is definitely a well-seasoned guitarist/vocalist.Dead man walkin’ is his latest adventure and without a doubt, this record is loaded with high class typical American Rock that combines the best of all the traditional American sounds, such as Blues, Americana, Rootsrock, Heartland Rock and Country. If you listen to the record for the first time, it is understandable that you call this an album to be picked up a.s.a.p. by fans of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Bonamassa, Jimi Hendrix andJohnny Winter, but Duffy definitely has an own identity (and you can even hear influences of Allman Brothers andBruce Springsteen).

For example, Son of the Republic is a very strong bluesy rocker with really great guitarwork, crossed with Duffy’s raw vocals, this tune sounds quite dirty and nasty, while America the Beautifuland Growing up Tree are suddenly peaceful beautiful acoustic singer-songwriter pieces with amazing clean spot-on vocals. And actually the whole CD shows these different styles of traditional American sounds (Blues meets Country meets Bluegrass Rock) and the natural way of Duffy’s voice (both raw and clean) is perfectly suitable to fit these various music styles and make it a pleasure to listen to the album from start to finish. Duffy is a huge talent, who could easily be on a major label and let’s just hope this Dead man walkin’ will be his breakthrough record. He deserves it and everyone out there needs to check out this American musician at:
