"[Woodward's] enthusiastic, sassy and gleeful delivery on top of the greasy grooves laid down by Hunter... bred sonic ear worms capable of digging into the deepest part of the brain inciting in the listener bodily movements and reactions beyond mere toe tapping and head bopping."

DAKOTA DUO DEBUT
Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward – bonded by their shared love of blues – have a dazzling interplay between Hunter’s funky guitar and Woodward’s powerful voice, while also reflecting the spontaneity and good vibes of the duo’s live performances.
First performing together in January 2018, Hunter and Woodward quickly constructed a setlist of favorite songs and hit the road. Within less than a week of playing shows together, they realized that they’d hit upon something very special indeed.
Hunter and Woodward are individually known as solo artists but have collectively toured and recorded with D’Angelo, Rod Stewart, Snarky Puppy, John Mayer, Pink Martini, Norah Jones and Celine Dion.

- Music!Music!Music! – marking the recorded debut of the musical partnership between Hunter and Woodward – features 11 radically reworked covers of songs by artists ranging from Blind Willie Johnson and Bessie Smith to Nina Simone and Terence Trent D’Arby.
- “I’ve done so many records in my lifetime,” says Hunter, everything from jazz to working with hip-hop people, really avant-garde stuff — but this is the first record I’ve ever done that is really a partnership with a singer. I’m really happy with how it came out.”
