McDuffie can make you stare straight down the barrel of a tough current truth one minute, and the next have you thinking about how much pure, complex, welcome power lies in a simple love song.
The influences run deep, and though almost no music isn’t an influence, there are some key voices that lie under this sound: The Temptations, Elvis Presley, Neil Young, Odetta and Joni Mitchell. The arrangements have an old-fashioned feel though the message is insistently current, and the musicianship is always solid – at times downright sublime.While she writes jazz songs in both old and new styles, the jazz sensibility has added a whole new field of color across the her folksy blues and added a complexity and richness to the music that you don’t often hear.
