Based out of Berwyn, PA but forged through iterations of original bands in Berlin, BetterDucks are an Indie Alt Rock band fronted by German born vocalist, guitarist and primary songwriter Dirk Externest. Better Ducks sound is - to curl up with on rainy days or to dance to in a sun-soaked summer. They fuse a driving rhythm section with vocal harmonies, melodic guitar work, with the deep richness of Dirk's lead vocals… think Wilco meets Knopfler with an occasional live encounter with The Drive By Truckers.
BetterDucks are unique with the pure warmth and honesty in their song-writing coupled with distinctive 70's vintage imagery and lack of pretense. Their music touches upon a range of emotions spanning both their upbeat to mellow songs, guiding listeners through their unique take on life's memorable moments.
The skillfully balanced harmonies gently unfold the narratives, with the soulful richness of Dirk's lyrics and voice. Dave Faunce backing vocals and keyboards accompany along with balanced clean and edgy melodic embellishments of Nick Voutsakis' guitar solos and passages backed by the driving rhythm section of Mark Betterly's Bass Lines and John Morgan's Drum work. The combination leaves the listener with a memorable live and studio experience.
BetterDucks are headlining locally and opening for national touring bands at some the area's most intimate music venues. Check out a show and their first release "And Then Some" or sign up for their mailing list.
