“FOLSOM PRISON BLUES”
July 1, 2013
HIP Video Promo is pleased to once again be working with Zeke Duhon, one of the most profound singer/songwriters to emerge on the contemporary music scene and we are proud to introduce the astounding rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”
This Tulsa, Oklahoma native’s inspirations focus on artists such as Coldplay, Simon and Garfunkel, Bright Eyes, and The Beatles. With a wide range of musical interests, Zeke’s creative capability soars. At the mere age of nineteen, Zeke is at the prime of his career enticing fans from all over the world with his powerful recollection of modern indie music. His last video clip “Loved Me Too” has gained wide spread popularity amongst critics and music fans.
As an unsigned artist on the rise, Zeke’s main goal is to create powerful indie music. His affluent influences and well-rounded tastes have molded him into an eclectic, soulful musician that has the capability to make music out of just about anything. At the age of soul-searching and knowledge, Zeke masters a powerful rendition of one of Johnny Cash’s most famous tune in his most recent video, “Folsom Prison Blues.”
The setting of the clip takes viewers inside of Zeke Duhon’s charismatic world, not to mention a stunningly beautiful recording studio. It’s an old church that Leon Russell purchased and converted into his own private studio. Some of the names of artist who recorded there are J J Cale, Elvin Bishop, David Gates, and a fella named Eric Clapton. Zeke’s approach to the song is wild and holds an energy that is reminiscent of Johnny Cash’s energetic style. The backing band is chock full of hot licks and incredible chops, and the energy is infectious with each member picking each other up, never letting off the gas pedal. With raspy vocals and an undeniable rhythm, Zeke’s version of “Folsom Prison Blues” is stylish and unique, yet captures the essence of his own creative approach to contemporary music.
We know you’ll love this clip and we want to do anything we can to get it into your programming.
