He gonna be a TV star one day too: young Tulsa-spawned/Nashville-based songwriter is the real deal.

Singer-Songwriter Zeke Duhon just dropped his self-titled debut EP on Big Deal Music Recordings, a six-songer produced by none other than longtime industry veteran Charlie Peacock (who recently worked with The Civil Wars). We’re pretty knocked out by his singing and storytelling smarts—enough to wanna unveil this unusual, cathode ray-drenched video Duhon has. Check it out:
The backstory: Influenced by the music he listened to growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and surrounded by his parent’s record collection including Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles and Eric Clapton, Zeke started to discover music on his own that moved him to write—such as Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Conor Oberst, The Decemberists and Mumford and Sons. Zeke wrote his first song by the age of 13 and at 15, he was releasing music and gigging around town. After high school he moved to Nashville and soon signed a publishing deal with Big Deal Music, which has had huge success with Ray LaMontagne and My Morning Jacket).
Zeke on recording with Peacock: “Recording this EP with one of my heroes was surreal and inspiring. Charlie Peacock helped create my favorite bands from childhood and having his touch on these songs that are so dear to me really added that extra oomph. I’m so excited for the world to connect to these experiences through recorded songs, and through my live performances face to face in the upcoming months.”
