Duane Stephenson from August TownDuane Stephenson’s work as a songwriter reflects contributions from a diverse group of industry veterans including a collaboration on “Better Tomorrow” with Jamaican mega-producer Handel Tucker creator of hits for Maxi Priest, Diana King, Shaggy and The Fugees.
Duane’s third album, Dangerously Roots was released September 23, 2014. In its pre-release, it has received critical acclaim from industry greats such as David Rodigan from the UK, Tony Carr from Washington DC, Delroy G from Toronto, and DJ Norie from New York. Listening sessions with fans have made it clear that Dangerously Roots is collectors’ items because of uplifting songs such as “Rasta For I,” and the tribute to Bunny Wailer in the song “Cool Runnings,” a 2014 take on the 1981 classic.
Noted producers on the album include Dean Fraser, Phillip “Winta” James, Clive Hunt, Christopher Birch, and Donovan Germaine from Penthouse Records. This collection of producers, and Duane’s tapestry of lyrics, makes Dangerously Roots an album that tells a story, and feeds the people good fruit from dangerous roots!
