After years of living on the outskirts of the heartland, DC Papke knows his way around a song. His lyrics are a kind of poetry without pretense; his narratives stripped to the bone. He sets his songs in the familiar territory of Folk/Rock/Americana where he can explore the landscape of love and the mysteries of fate. But don’t let the familiar fool you – Papke has a way with words and stories to tell. His music has always attracted other musicians and he plays with a crack band that knows how to create the perfect atmosphere and momentum for his songs. Together, they can take you out under the stars, down a strange new road, and bring you safely back by morning to your own sweet home.
