Album Notes
"No emerging local singer-songwriter has more buzz than Antje Duvekot" BOSTON HERALD

"Antje Duvekot is Boston's next great songwriter..."
ELLIS PAUL - singer-songwriter

"Antje Duvekot's provocative dark-eyed ballads are becoming the talk of the folk world" BOSTON GLOBE (2005)

"Big Dream Boulevard," produced by Solas founder Seamus
Egan, marks the most convincing debut by any local songwriter since Dar
Williams' "Honesty Room" in 1993. Duvekot's songs feel at once fresh-faced
and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. Like
Williams, she believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and
she is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs
that turn fear into resilience, and isolation into community.

You'll love it
I can't stop listening to this CD. The rhythms of her songs are surprisingly original, the words actually say something, and overall, it just sounds great. Unlike most CDs, I love it when it gets stuck in my head.


I Love the Music; I Will Never Forget the Lyrics!
I first heard Antje (the little girl from the castle on the hill in Heidelberg) doing "Long Way". Her description of Montana, Arizona and expecially the South Dakota reservation that is a national tragedy brought back such vivid memories. When I heard "Anna" I almost couldn't breathe. I am old enough to be Antje father--I'll bet he's one proud papa.


Can't Get Enough
What a fantastic collection of songs. Antje brings a breath of fresh air to songwriting. The only thing better than this album is seeing Antje live. I had the chance and she was wonderful. Give this album a listen.


brand new favorite music
Hardly to say anything after the Journals’ and Radios’ praises. Only I can say that is a very colourful music in Antje’s own style. Some old and some new songs, but each one is in brand new profil with fantastic arrangement. "Dandelion" like indie-folk evergreen with Flynn, "Go Now" or "Sex Bandaid" like pure rock stuff better and better loudly, "Diamond On Your Hand" like a melancholy dance, "Helpless Kiss" like a modern irish reels with John Doyle, "Jerusalem", "Judas", "South" like a soundtrack from a good movie, "Pearls" like a country ballad with a pedal-steel, "Anna" like a beautiful psalm, and in the end "Hold On" like a big sigh with Ellis Paul on background vocal..............highly recommended!


I've been following Antje's work since I saw her at Falconridge Folk Festival a few years back, and I have to say this is her best work yet. The tracks have just the right amount of polish -- they're not overproduced -- and the CD isn't filled with extraneous talk bits like her previous two, which makes it easy to listen to on repeat. I really enjoy this album and I can't wait to see what she comes out with next!


This is the third cd i have of Antje's and it too is quite amazing! I actually found her several years ago on this website and have been very grateful for that discovery. I recommend her to anyone and she will be sure to not disappoint! Please buy her cd's and try to see her live if possible. I am hoping to see her in DC sometime in January. Happy Listening.....


Beautiful music, beautiful voice
In a dutch music magazine I read about Antje's studio album coming out. Knowing her music already thanks to CD Baby, I loved Big Dream Boulevard right away, starting with the beautifully arranged Dandelion. I am recommending the album wherever I can and I hope Antje will be coming to Holland soon.

A Master music-maker that transcends genre and defies labels. I felt like I had discovered a new world!!


Wonderful, not overproduced and simply beautiful....just like Antje herself. :)
I was really worried that now that she is on a label that her songs would be overproduced instead of that real and raw feeling when you hear them in person. Hold On with Ellis is just simply perfect. Jerusalem...stunning, Sex Bandaid...GREAT, Dandelion, LOVE IT!!


Jaw-droppingly beautiful
For those who have been waiting for Antje to come out with a professionally produced CD that does her songs justice, wait no longer!

If you already know the acoustic versions of songs such as Dandelion, Go Now and Sex Bandaid, it may take some getting used to hear these studio versions. But luckily Seamus Eagon's production does not often overwhelm Antje's ethereal voice, letting the underlying beauty of these songs shine through.

The album skillfully blends songs aimed to have a more mainstream appeal--Dandelion, and Go Now, for example-- with more stripped down songs as we know them from Antje.

Its really hard to pick a standout on this album, but there's no question in my mind that Judas, Pearls, South, Sex Bandaid, and Jerusalem are all major accomplishments that will be covered by other songwriters in the future.

Ellis Paul says it best when he calls her the next big American folk singer. She's shown here that's she's a major new voice.
