The Duke & The King are a glam-soul-folk quartet from New York featuring Simone Felice, Bobbie Bird Burke, Simi Stone and Nowell Haskins. Named after the travelling Shakespeare hustlers in Mark Twain’s ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’ these curious blood-brothers (and sweet sister) have found a home together, a travelling Church of Harmony and Sin where its OK to french kiss your cousin and all strays are welcome to come out of the cold and sing along to songs of love, loss, pathos, and hope. The Duke & The King have been touring all corners of the globe in support of their internationally acclaimed debut album ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’.
