Airplay in San Diego – and more


Thanks to  Cathryn Beeks, host of the Listen Local Show in San Diego for giving “Fires and Earthquakes” a spin ! The show airs on 89.1FM in San Diego County and can be listened to online at ListenLocalRadio.com.

Cathryn was one of the first supporters of my (passion for playing live) music and I’m really happy she likes the track!


There’s been interest from online and broadcast radio stations as far as New-Zealand and as close as Luxembourg. (But it’s not always easy to find out when it airs). So: if you hear my voice on the radio, let me know, wherever you are !

Video Thursday – Fires&Earthquakes Live at Mille Mechelen

Carl Durant Fires and Earthquakes Live At Mille Cafe Mechelen 2014
Here’s a new song I performed at the “Laaghangend Fruit” showcase at Cafe Mille in Mechelen. Enjoy ! It’s an uptempo song about fires, earthquakes and leaving California after having lived in San Diego for 11 years… returning to Leuven, Belgium.

New Band/New Beer: new band introduction ! 22/03/2014 Leuven

Singer-songwriter Carl Durant (net terug uit San Diego) stelt zijn nieuwe band voor ! Gratis toegang. Event met “Egotripel”, het nieuwe, alomgeprezen bier uit Oud-Heverlee (éénmalig aan introprijs). Naast gitaar, drums&bas zal er ook cello te horen zijn…

Muzikaal wordt het een blend van Gabriel Rios, Milow en Novastar.

Wat bier betreft: Egotripel is een verfrissend fruitig blond bier. Er is een mooie balans van bitter/zoet/zuur. De smaak is vol en in de afdronk behoud je een licht zoete, niet kleffe, toon aangevuld met het kruidige van de hop.

Om 21u30 beginnen we er aan met een kort voorprogramma…


Video Thursday – Belgian artist Selah Sue (US CD launch)

Selah Sue - This World (Official Video)
Get ready to be amazed. She might live just a block away from my parents in Belgium, but she’s definitely world class. Oh yeah, she doesn’t have her looks against her either.


To many, this young singer’s self-titled debut record is reminiscent of Amy Winehouse, but with an added reggae swagger. I had a hard time picking one song, but I think “This World” is a great introduction to her mix of soul, reggae and “organic hip-hop”.

Here’s a link to the FREE iTunes single that was released this week in the US, together with her album. Help her get in the charts ! .


To close off: a link to a very intimate version of a sad but passionate song, “Summertime Bring me Joy
