Duane Stephenson On Black Gold Tour!

Duane Stephenson is currently on his fourth tour outing with reggae’s legendary group The Wailers. Recent tours throughout South America and the U.S. have garnered a positive response with sold-out performances for this compelling songwriter and versatile singer. Performing songs from his September 2010 VP Records release, BLACK GOLD, as well as songs from his debut album, From August Town (2007), Duane explains that he is “meeting many fans for the first time and these fans are a bit out of the scope of the traditional reggae market, working with The Wailers, and the support has been great so far.”

Duane’s introduction to The Wailers was through their work with the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). He was invited to write a song “A Step for Mankind” to support the WFP. Duane is currently working on a new song, of which the proceeds will benefit the WFP’s largest global operation in Sudan.

In October 2010, Duane was invited by the WFP to honor Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, at the The George McGovern Leadership Award Ceremony as part of his work to spread the message of the need for more action in addressing the issue of world hunger.

As for the scope of his contribution as a reggae artist and humanitarian, he explains: “What I am doing is part of a larger mandate. The more you can do to make the world a better place for everybody, it is really a pleasure to do the little bit that I am actually doing, the feeling is great. It is something worthwhile as there are not many of these opportunities left.”
