For the past few years KING DUDE has been one of the most misunderstood voices in folk music. He's been accused of everything under the sun; to some he is a violent psychopathic Satanist, to others he is a charlatan-left-leaning coward... And that's just scratching the surface. While there are many myths surrounding him it seems true that no one can easily sum him up in a single breath. One thing is for sure, he plays uncompromising songs devoted to his craft without questioning how it will be interpreted. He doesn't ask anyone for permission to exist in this way and refuses to back down in the face of his naysayers. As is the tradition of folk music in it's original form, his latest album "Full Virgo Moon" represents a "shots-fired over the line" at many of these detractors, his songs becoming pointed dagger-like anthems of the unsung theists and atheists alike. As he weaponizes his songs in this unique manner, he is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous and influential folk musicians of our times. Beware and be aware, KING DUDE is a force to be reckoned with.
"Full Virgo Moon" was recorded in Seattle Washington in the first two weeks of January 2020. The album consists of nine new songs all performed, recorded, mixed and mastered at home by Thomas Cowgill. The focus of the album was to recall the earlier works of KING DUDE before he had a full band, so there is a distinct minimal approach to the album.
