Duke Special

Duke Special is the alias of Peter Wilson, a singer-songwriter from Belfast currently making waves across the UK and Ireland.

Duke mixes influences from pop to vaudeville to create a sound all of his own, which earned him support tours with Aqualung and Rufus Wainwright before he'd even released a full length album.

His debut record, entitled Adventures In Gramophone, is the combination of two earlier limited edition EPs. Writing and playing the bulk of the songs himself, the result is an intensely personal album which skirts a number of genres without neatly fitting into any. Fans have compared him to Tom Waits, probably more because of his eccentric dress style and fondness for unusual instruments, but his music more closely resembles a more adventurous Rufus Wainwright.

Duke Special released a third EP, Your Vandal, in October 2005. « hide
