A book simply being left open doesn't make it worthy of a reader's attention. But, after a few pages, one can tell whether that book will remain intact on some tabletop or be ruined by repeated use over months and years of a life. There is a gravitational pull that, at times, lures us back to a favorite work by a favorite creative being. And no special effects could ever replace what really makes a great work of art in any field; CONTENT.
Diggs Duke epitomizes that very theory that we all wish to believe. The music's elegant design lies not in how it sounds on your car stereo, but in how it will integrate into your life. These songs were made for you to hum as you pick apples at the grocery store. They were made for you to sing as you feed your children or rock them to sleep. In their spawning of new concepts and recycling of seemingly old cliches, you will find, above all, a message and a melody.
