rebelking I am so damn proud of all my friends! Watching my brother Jesse Payne play at Saturn. Congrats to my old friend Brian Teasley @astrostuff for opening one of the most bad ass venues in America! This is yet another game changer for the Birmingham community. #music #bowerypresents #saturnbirmingham #instagrambham #musicbham #saturnbham 4d

rebelking This week I am back in the studio working on music for a new album. I've written a lot of songs over the last 2 years, but have put all my time and energy into being a dad and being with my family lately. I value my time with my family and the time I get to be creative very much. I've started limiting time online and social media so I am more focused on my family and my creative life. For myself social media can be a complete time suck and it really affects me mentally and spiritually. But everyone will tell you to keep posting new content wether it's images or demos of songs. I truly don't believe that I should put my trust of success of my music on how much I am self promoting online and it goes against my faith. So for now my posts will be very limited so I can focus on the work at hand. I am very grateful for everyone's support and love and I hope people understand. Love, Duq 2w
  •   laurarogers I feel this. It's like we're supposed to spend more time promoting ourselves than actually making music. It's a strange world we live in,. Can't wait to see and hear what you're working on! 2w

  •   john_agnello Go get em! 2w

rebelking Saturday night was a moment in time I will never forget and I hope my son is telling this story to his children one day. Good Lord willing I'll be there to verify. I'm still sorting through my thoughts and feelings on the closing of The Bottletree & will write them all out this week. On Saturday night we celebrated with the community that came out, the staff, the owners, the volunteers and all the incredible bands. It was such an honor to play a rock n roll show with so many old friends on stage helping bring the groove. I love all of you. Even more special was being able to look down right in front of me and see my son. His first live show was watching me play while his mom held him close and wrestled the headphones onto his head covering his ears to protect them from the triple guitar, double drum assault. Seasons change and the Bottletree helped launch the Birmingham music scene onto a national level and we are all eternally grateful. Me and my family love y'all! #meandbtree #ruggedandfancyfamily 1mon
  •   lightdarkroom From way up here in the frozen North, I haven't been able to glean any details about why our beloved Bottletree closed. I wish I could've been there to see her off. What set it all in motion? 1mon
  •   suecoursey That boy is a rock n roller Duq! He wasn't having any part of those headphones! 1mon

rebelking I've never thought about what my headstone would say if I was buried upon leaving this earth, mostly because I want to be cremated and have my ashes scattered in the mountains where I spent my childhood. But, after some hilarious late night texting with my good friend and consigliere @mdouglas47 I believe he might be on to something. Thank you brother for always making me laugh my ass off. #gratefuldead #ruggedandfancyfamily #rocknroll 1mon

rebelking I am incredibly grateful that I get to be a part of the final @bottletreecafe, as we have known it, show this Saturday March 28th. My friends who have owned and run Bottletree since its opening have dedicated there lives to this community for years and I can wait to celebrate with them and all who are coming out on Saturday. I've put together a large group of Birmingham musicians who played with me over the years and recorded with me in some form or fashion. Folks from Through the Sparks, Wray, The Grenadines, King Carnivore, Broken Letters, Gum Creek Killers, Rebel Kings, Great Book of John and the rock n roll queen Mandi Rae. We'll be playing stuff from all of my albums. Come celebrate and thank the Bottletree family for all they have done for us over the years. I love y'all! #meandbtree #musicbham #instagrambham 1mon

rebelking My lovely wife snagged this of me last Friday. I was jumping in celebration after having spent weeks and weeks being extremely depressed and trying to hide it from everyone around me, this is not a normal thing for me. I was not sure I even wanted to share this but I felt I needed to put it out there so I can move forward. The last year has been one of the hardest yet most rewarding years of my life. I grateful for all of it, the good and bad because out of the bad our lives have improved and we are a healthier family all around. While I could not tour or really continue promoting my album due to my wife being so sick, we got to be together as a family for the first year of my son's life, something I screwed up royally with my daughter and vowed to not repeat. It all kind of hit me at once weeks ago and sent me crashing. I was zapped and did not know how to get over the hurdle and could not record or write or do anything except take care of my son. I know people struggle with serious depression everyday and my heart goes out to all of you. I'm extremely thankful for my wife's tough yet loving encouragement. You are a total bad ass and inspiration to me. Also grateful to have ayatollah of rock n rolla @doc_jessica on my team and Judy too. Damn three women who all kicked my ass back on track. Now it's time to get back to recording demos for the next album and preparing to launch a new non music project with my brother @armandmargjeka. Happy Spring Equinox, Solar Eclipse, Super Moon Friday. 2mon
