In deep thought
Jimmy thinks beyond life in a square box.
Things are so much bigger than we realize. There are many possibilities in life and anything is possible.
This philosophy is reflected in the music.
Jimmy feels that every single moment in his life has brought him to where he is now with his music. This is also reflected in his talent and music ability.
Jimmy Dukelow began writing songs at age twelve. Over the years has written and recorded various songs in different genre. It was an inspiring moment, when Jimmy listened to Emerson, Lake and Palmer’s rendition of Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition. The incredible guitar work of Greg Lake was magic to his ears. This ultimately led to studies in classical guitar. Dukelow spent hours working on rigorous exercises for left and right hand. Through this discipline, was able to develop intricate arpeggios of the right hand. This gave him a signature sound. Some have said that he plays the guitar as if it were a piano.
Dukelow recorded two ambient albums in 2001: “Wish Disc” and “Peace and Ambience.” Utilizing the new world of digital media, his works were uploaded to Mp3.com. This was an exciting world, as Jimmy was getting his music out to the world. He was getting some encouragement from peers and one of them acclaimed New Age artist Suzanne Ciani.
Over the years, Dukelow has written and recorded songs of many genre. Though most of his works are ambient with an alternative flare. The theme in most of his compositions are of a good or positive nature. It is of his intention to add something positive to the world. To mend the soul of the stresses that life imposes in our everyday lives.
Le Mystique is a project began in 2011. The name of French origin means, “The Mystic”.
Dukelow (Duclos), is a descendent of French Protestant refugees (Heugonots), who fled France to escape persecution and death for leaving the Catholic church as protestants. The Huguenots were free thinkers when it came to their faith, not succumbing to the restrictions of the Catholic Church. Dukelow’s ancestors lived in France in the times of Nostradamus. This the inspiration for the name.
