It was Leo Tolstoy who said “All great literature is one of two stories; a man goes on a
journey or a stranger comes to town,” and in the case of Andrew Duhon and his latest album
Emerald Blue, both instances are true. Duhon temporarily left New Orleans,his longtime
home and musical muse in 2019, finding himself inspired by the landscape of the Pacific
Northwest and notably, its colors
— a hue he describes as ‘emerald blue’ for which the album is named, the same shade looking back at him in his partner’s eyes. Had he overlooked the specific shade of her eyes while living below sea level? Or did the change of location open his mind more acutely? The record does just that: examine the familiar in the context of theunfamiliar. Emerald Blue is a probing appreciation of the dailiness of life; a note-takingexercise in living.Duhon channeled his new perspective into an eleven song collection, calling on friends and
collaborators includingJano Rix
on drums, percussion, and harmonies;
Myles Weeksonupright andelectric basses and harmonies; andDan Walkeron keys and accordion.Duhon returned South for the recording process, finding comfort and creativity in Maurice,Louisiana’s storied
Dockside Studioswith GRAMMYaward winning engineer andlongtime collaborat
or of Andrew’s,Trina Shoemaker, to capture every inch of vibe andbeauty and texture each song had to offer.
