There is something powerful and emotionally grabbing about The Duke of Norfolk's song, "Dylan Thomas / Bitter Bitter."
Hailing from the fields of Oklahoma, The Duke of Norfolk (Adam Howard) crafts indie-folk songs that carry beautiful and well written melodies that can captivate an audience within seconds. In specific, "Dylan Thomas / Bitter Bitter" features an ever evolving arrangement where each part carries into another unexpected but lovely space. Speaking on the release of his latest album, Howard had this to say.
"Late in the summer of 2015 my father left. Nobody knows where the leaving go.
Seeing death so close, I began–as many do–to see death everywhere. I saw him in distant wars & with starving children, with the still-born baby & the teenage suicide, indiscriminately picking from the old and the young. Present in the daily newspaper and in ancient myths, the question of every scripture and a pulsing undertone of the romantic poets.
Though there is nothing to say that is yet unsaid, there is comfort in the saying."
