Andrew Duhon, “Comin’ Around”

Duhon’s soulful croon takes centerstage on this slow-burning tribute to perseverance and self-reckoning. Backed by a cyclical guitar riff that never overwhelms the melody, Duhon takes a hard look at his own path, knowing he’s too far into the journey – wherever it may be leading him – to turn back. Instead, he continues moving forward with renewed purpose, chasing down a new horizon while soft drums and a cyclical guitar riff echo in the background. R.C.
