Lincoln Durham
Armed with old bastardized mid-century guitars, hand-me-down fiddles and banjos, home-made contraptions with just enough tension on a string to be considered an instrument and any random percussive item he can get his hands or feet on, Lincoln Durham is a Southern-Gothic Psycho-Blues Revival-Punk One-Man-Band with a heavy amped edge, preaching the gospel of some new kind of depraved music. With driving guttural beats backboning various growling stringed instruments Lincoln gives birth to a sound that transcends genres with his dark, poetic and raw writing style telling tales that E.A. Poe would have been proud of.

Lincoln’s musical odyssey began when his grandpa, Charlie, and dad, Ed, put a fiddle in his hands at age 4. He would grow into an accomplished fiddle player winning the Youth Fiddle Championship at age 10. Lincoln afterward followed the path so many musicians have, finding his vice in the seductive, siren-like callings of the electric guitar. Or, in Lincoln’s case, the acoustic slide guitar with gnarly pickups haphazardly screwed into it.

Lincoln’s true biography is in his live show. The passion in his sweat drenched, electrifyingly mesmerizing one-man-band show draws you in to feel every scar and drop of blood in his painfully intimate lyrics. It takes something beautifully “off” to get on stage with just hands and feet for a band, driven by a howling voice, and morbidly preach a music that harkens back to the old blues masters, Son House and Fred McDowell, infused with the edge and angst of Punk and darkened from the bad influences of Tom Waits and Nick Cave.

Zack Dupont a Burlington, VT based, independent songwriter and guitarist. Active since 2008, music has lead him all over America to festivals like SXSW, The Cambridge River Fest and Grand Point North sharing the stage in support of nationally touring acts like Taj Mahal, Sturgill Simpson, Grace Potter, Blake Mills, Suzanne Vega, Julian Lage, Jerry Douglas, Bahamas, Sam Amidon and Pat Benatar to name a few. Poetic lyrical imagery, finger style guitar work and a comforting-humorous stage presence creates a working landscape in which Dupont dwells.

“I want to create music that is a sound track of the human brain and experience. I have a strong belief that people should be able to see or hear themselves in the songs without any limitations. It’s an environment where people are free to be exactly where or who they need to be in that shared moment. “ - Zack Dupont

“Simply put, Dupont is an elite guitarist. Here and throughout the album, his attention to dynamic subtlety — in addition to immaculate technical polish and engaging melody lines — is remarkable.

Similarly, Dupont’s vocal performance is intimate, nuanced and affecting. He appears to take as much care with his hushed delivery as he does with his impressively understated guitar work.

Each of his talents works fully in concert with the others. Imagine M. Ward collaborating with Iron and Wine. The word you’re looking for is, sublime.” -Dan Bolles, Seven Days VT
