Kent's a true nomad who has wandered the world playing the blues since 1968. For the last 18 years he's travelled mostly with just "Leadbessie" along for company. She's a beat-up old National steel guitar kitted out with extra heavy strings to cope with his ferociously powerful style. A native of Minnesota, DuChaine developed his style listening to the music of Robert Johnson, Lightning Hopkins, T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters and Elmore James. As his skill developed he backed up blues legends like Big Walter Horton, and Hubert Sumlin. He then went on to share the bill with BB King, Albert King, John Lee Hooker, Howling Wolf, Bukka White, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells and many more.

In 1990, he met and established a partnership with the legendary bluesman Johnny Shines. For nearly three years and 200 shows he worked with Johnny Shines, helping the older bluesman to rediscover his skills and reach a wider audience. Since Shines' death in April 1992 DuChaine has been running the roads hard, spreading his style of delta blues, urban blues and original music, to all whom will listen. He divides his time performing in the United States, the UK, Europe, and Scandinavia. When not performing his music, he is trying to catch a big ole bass on beautiful Lake Eufaula near his home in Georgia.
