Album Notes
Dave and I are pleased to announce our sixth CD; we hope you enjoy it. Here are some reviews from our fans:

Good music from good friends: I was delighted to listen to Dave and Becky's collaboration as Distant Duet. The music is not elaborate, but it puts heartfelt lyrics and vocals out front. There’s much to like in this collection, but one of my favorites is “By Now,” where Dave sings in a soulful and almost menacing voice I’ve never heard from him before. If there’s potential for commercial success in independent releases these days, I’m suggesting Becky Dunkel’s “Sorry Baby,” my other favorite. It sounds like music for a movie to me. If you’ve got romance in you heart and poetry in your soul, check out Distant Duet's CDs.

Heart Felt Honesty: If you enjoy discovering new music by new artists, then this CD is for you. When two old friends join together with mutual song writing talent and heartfelt honesty, the results are refreshing. Becky Dunkel has a voice that is as clear and crisp as a spring day but strong and bold like a cold north wind. Her songs are refreshing and lift up your spirits. David Yarbrough, the other half of the Duet, is more of a quiet type that I would call a deep-water artist. His poetic lyrics are always honest and from the heart. His music expresses our human thoughts, feelings, and emotions. If Woody Guthrie was the voice of America and Bob Dylan the voice of our culture, then David Yarbrough is the voice of the heart. I can’t wait for the next CD.

Very Original: Dave is a multi-talented individual whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for many years. I don't know Becky, but I do know she has a great voice. I also know that they have put together some great CDs with a lot of heart .

Highly recommended: This is well-crafted folk music created by two people who work well together and really highlight their respective talents. Playful to wistful to romantic, but always "rootsy," Distant Duet is always a great listen from beginning to end. Keep it comin'!

False Sympathy: Great Sound! These folks are getting better and better. I have always enjoyed their music, and it's all good, but I think this one is the best yet. The songs are very original, down to earth, and a joy to listen to.

Great blend of influences - best yet!
This duet keeps getting better, gently honing and expanding their sound. From the honky tonk piano of “All the Tea in Dixie” to the Jordanaires-inspired vocal harmonies on “Ode to Elvis”; from the ‘60s-era progressions of “Leave This Town” to the lilting melody of “The Way Things Go” which calls to mind Margo Timmins’ work with Cowboy Junkies, this latest album is full of wonderful touches that fully round out the group’s sound nicely. At this point in their work, Dunkel and Yarbrough are able to weave these elements together as a seamless whole, creating a sound all their own. Great work!
