Folk Duo Duke & Goldie Face the Comedown on Debut Single “Courage”

When they escaped from Toronto and set out for a small island in the pacific northwest in May of 2020, the musical duo of Eric “The Duke” Duquette and Jena “Goldie” Gogo didn’t quite know where their musical journey would take them. As longtime members of Blue Sky Miners, the duo had released two albums, toured North America, and enjoyed national radio play. Still there seemed to be uncharted musical waters on the horizon. 

While Jena was honing her own unique songwriting style, Eric was beginning to experiment by writing his own songs inspired by the music of the 60’s and 70’s. Fire lit jams, a newfound connection to nature and deep reflection on their roles as settlers in this land gave spark to a six song EP that the now Vancouver-based pair will present as Duke & Goldie on May 12th, 2023

Courage,” the first single to be shared, initially came to Goldie in an attempt to recapture a natural high, and the incredible feelings that come with moments of creative fulfillment and release. It can be difficult to carry that feeling forward with you into the more challenging, every day slog that inevitably follows. Finding the courage to face the behaviour and circumstances that were causing the severity of the come downs.
