Dupree got his musical start in Austin, Texas, and his voice still has some Heartworn Highways-era color to it. It’s a quality meant for the stories told on Thieves.
These are stories about the Trump years, a span which coincided with Dupree’s own attempt to rebuild a life after divorce. It was a time for the painful ending of illusions, about himself and about the country. He was living between artist residencies, sublets, and storage units along I-10, and long hours spent on the highway soon found a form in the long lines of traditional folk ballads. Slowly, new songs began to emerge.
