Aptly named, Duke Special is the accomplishment of the endlessly inventive Peter Wilson whose grandeur and individuality is heightened by his poetic lyrics, lush sound and eccentric instruments. Hailing from Belfast, his gloriously vintage and self confessed 'hobo-chic' style offers original, theatrical on-stage performances yet equally emotive recordings with his latest album achieving platinum status. His new release boasts an additional ten track live recording with the Ulster Orchestra as well as collaborations with Heil Hannon and The Magic Numbers' Romeo Stodart. All set for his explosive touring schedule, we catch up with Duke Special to hear about his triumphant year and exciting future on this week's edition of O2 Making Waves.
