Inspired by the rich music and culture of the '60s and '70s, Brian Duke grew up learning to play drums like his paisley clad idols. Branching off into the Jazz and Blues worlds, he enriched his grooves playing with Little Tower (formerly the Hoochie Coochie Men), and studying under drum legend Bill Goodwin. Shortly after graduating Lafayette College with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Brian started playing with the NYC based up and coming alt rock band, Cale and the Gravity Well, who will be releasing an EP in 2017 produced by Jim Fairchild (Modest Mouse, Grandaddy). Around the same time he also started working with guitar virtuoso Roger Filgate, a former member of Wishbone Ash. In February of 2017 Brian started drumming for country star Jessica Lynn. Brian can often be found playing in New York City with his brother Kyle's band, Kyle Duke and the Brown Bag Boys.
