Antje Duvekot has solidified her reputation as one of Boston's top singer songwriters with "Big Dream Boulevard" her debut studio release and her follow-up albums "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia". The debut CD, which was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish super group, SOLAS was released on songwriter Ellis Paul's label and quickly attracted international attention for Antje. It was voted "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top 10 Releases of the Year" by National Public Radio's, Folk Alley. Antje's follow up albums "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" were produced by Richard Shindell and feature "folk royalty" such as Shindell hismelf, John Gorka, Lucy Kaplansky and Mark Erelli.
"What a blessing to have worked with someone as talented as Antje. With a voice like hers, and songs as good as these, a producer (especially a first-time producer!) just tries to get out of the way, to do no harm, and to let the artist speak for herself." - Richard Shindell
"Duvekot has gotten hotter faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community". The Boston Globe
Antje has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious, Kerrville (TX) "Best New Folk Award" and the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act".
