“an amateur good enough to be a professional” – Harvey Reid, troubadour extraordinaire
Kingsley Durant is known for the wide-ranging scope of his guitar playing, from solo acoustic, as on his 2003 CD, Away From the Water (Alchemy Records), to modern jazz with the Kingsley Durant Trio, to straight-up vintage pop, R&B, and rock, with bands such as Identity Crisis, The No. 2 Pencils, and Say Uncle. He is currently working on recording a new CD to showcase his recent compositions (some of which are sampled here) and developing a website, Kyngsland, devoted to all things guitar. Kingsley’s guitar demos can be found on YouTube under the user name kingsleydgtr, and his music can be accessed through iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon.
