about

Diggs Duke Washington, D.C.

Winding horn lines and electric guitar passages. Vocals used sparingly over a transition. Djembe played in a tug-of-war with a drum machine. This is the sound of Diggs Duke's music, which can be characterized as a fresh, yet familiar interpretation of the bond between Soul and Jazz music. Listen. ... more

Track Name: Duty of Grace
Born in a city that's cold for 8 months through
The hub of higher ground beneath her frozen in time
Courting never came so easy to her style
And grace forgot it's duty too
Though patience once resisted so
In essence, it was profound
That she would come in touch
With what's important to progression
A lesson learned, a perfect composition
Track Name: Well Repel
Peace and love and all that shit
Is what you're looking for
Trying to avoid the heat
That's spoken of in that big book of lies
In search of some surprise

Only mundane thoughts passive dreams
Can stop the roll
Again, you try to slay the praying mantis
But, he has no will to die
He laughs at your reprise

But only the strong
Could hold on so long
Only the stern
Receive what they've earned

Segments and Signs
And roles redefined
Quiet as kept
This life is aligned

Often we attract the things that we should well repel
Becoming what we've always been in secret
Through an ancient urge to dine
And drink from ageless wine

Vanity's a human attribute to be despised
Mirrors tell the truth as much as fish and crabs
Who crave the dangling line
A remedy so fine

But only the strong
Could hold on so long
Only the stern
Receive what they've earned

Segments and Signs
And roles redefined
Quiet as kept
This life is aligned
Track Name: Like I Won't Grow Old
When it mattered very little what the next door people said
When I picked my wounds wide open no concern how much they bled

Like steam
Like a tree
Like a fly on the wall

Like pure jubilation
A sigh as I fall...

(I'm no longer a babe)
running barefoot through the street
existing like I won't grow old

like I won't grow weary
worn from women's words and fists of men
when my face first hit the pavement
then once more and once again

Like cold
Like the sea
Like an elegant bride

I've traded my life for a smoke and a ride

Like I won't grow old
I'll jump and I'll expect myself to fall
