Duke Garwood 

Duke Garwood has released seven studio albums: Holy WeekEmerald PalaceThe Sand That FallsDreamboatsafariHeavy Love, Garden of Ashes and With Animals (with Mark Lanegan).

He also played guitar on The Orb's single "Perpetual Dawn," appeared on the first two albums (Fur and Derdang Derdang) of the English rock band Archie Bronson Outfit on clarinet and rhaita (a Moroccan reed instrument), and most recently played guitar on Mark Lanegan's album Blues Funeral and clarinet on Savages' album Silence Yourself, among many other guest appearances.

In 2011, Garwood collaborated with artist  Shezad Dawood in the concert performance 'New Dream Machine Project', which resumed the 1968 recording of Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones and Master Musicians of Jajouka. The new generation of "Master Musicians" and Garwood recreated that moment around the three-metre tall Dreamachine, originally invented by Brion Gysin and created for the occasion by Dawood.

In February 2013,  Ipecac and Heavenly announced the signing of Duke Garwood & Mark Lanegan. Lanegan described Garwood as "one of his all time favorite artists" and working with him as "one of the best experiences of his recording life". Their debut collaboration album Black Pudding was released in May 2013, followed by ‘With Animals’ released in 2018 (Heavenly Records).

Duke is now back in the studio writing for his forthcoming solo album.

Duke Garwood is exclusively managed by Magnificent Artists and is presently signed to Heavenly Recordings. Duke is published by Mute Recordings.
