Duke Bardwell’s “You & I” is the motion picture soundtrack to the film “Duke & The King”— a soulful music documentary that explores the obscure career of one of the great, unheralded voices in American music.

     Expertly shot and edited with a lush, cinematic feel, Back From the Dread offers a high-profile portrayal of an under-the-radar band. The film features performances and interviews with the members of the band spread over three years, six states and a host of venues. Completing the package is a special appearance by Duke Bardwell, former bass player for Elvis Presley and the band's mentor, who reveals that what drives these guys is not fame and fortune, but love, family and soulful quest for beautiful music.
