Discovery: The Duke of Norfolk

American folk performer The Duke of Norfolk combines traditional folk with biblical imagery in the single As The Heralds Revere You.

By Graeme Smith

As The Heralds Revere You is a simple song of love delivered with understated emotion. Fans of Bon Iver will eat up The Duke of Norfolk’s style, emotional arrangement and vocals tell a cryptic, metaphorical tale of the complexities of love. The metaphor here draws on the rich imagery of The Bible, with heavenly themes popping up throughout this love song. It’s really quite beautiful.

From Oklahoma but now residing in Scotland, The Duke of Norfolk aka Adam Howard draws his inspiration from traditional Irish and modern electric folk. It’s difficult to distinguish yourself in the world of folk and acoustic music by Adam manages it well in As The Heralds Revere You. Check it out below.
