Duane Rutter has Hit a Home Run with "Waiting Room"
I've never met Duane Rutter. We've traded e-mails a couple of times and he seems like a pretty nice guy -- down to earth and focused on what matters, like family and friends, but we’ve never been able to meet face to face. So, despite the fates not having let us meet, I feel that I know him and it’s all because he sent me his debut CD "Waiting Room".

Now, Duane’s no novice at this music thing – he’s called himself “a twenty-five year overnight sensation”; but he’s an accomplished singer-songwriter as well as an experienced side man with various musicians in the Simcoe / Port Dover area of southwestern Ontario.

This is an album that features exceptionally crafted tunes complemented by insightful, often introspective lyrics that address life’s universal themes. Backed by exceptional players including the multi-talented Dan Walsh, the guitar, dobro, mandolin and upright bass all support each arrangement without overpowering. Mr. Rutter has managed to capture a haunting, yet hopeful spirit throughout the album.

Whether the powerful confessions in “Goodnight Amy” or the difficulties of relationship building in “Heartless Wheel” or even the surreal imagery of “Dead Man”, this is a collection of ten songs that speaks from and to the heart.

My personal favourite? Perhaps, “Rachel Sings”, or maybe “No More Wine for Jesus” or . . . Even better: buy the album, grab your earphones and enjoy. Hopefully you’ll become as big a fan as I have.

Congratulations Duane – you have a winner here. I like to think that it will be easy to trade a tall tale or two with you over a pot of coffee when we finally get to meet.
