Carl Dukes, Artist Formerly In Incarcerated

Carl Dukes

Like most people I’ve been singing all my life; in the hallways and classrooms and by all means in the shower. Finally, a year ago I started singing “on the mic”. It has gone very well. So far I’ve performed two shows at The Castle Gardens here in NYC.

Let me tell you about a real highlight – the day Fury Young came to hear me perform. After my set, Fury tells me about a project he’s working on, “Die Jim Crow”. He asked me to tell him about my experiences post-release. I said I can do better than that – I have it written all down. This story became a song which I also sing on: “Plastic Bag”.
