A professional musician at the age of 14, DuQuette's performing career took off in the late 60s, first as a solo opener for folk-singer Hoyt Axton, and comedian (presidential candidate) Pat Paulson, then as half of the singing-songwriting duo, Charley D. & Milo (Epic Records* 1970). Their self-titled album received Billboard Magazine's Spotlight Pick, and their second single, "The Word is Love" went to number one in a respectable number of markets throughout the US. Concerts and studio work with Arlo Guthrie, The Dillards, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sammy Davis Jr., Johnny Rivers (Rivers recorded the Harris/DuQuette song, "Movin' to the Country,"** on his album, Home Grown) highlighted this season in DuQuette's musical career.
His creative focus eventually switched from writing songs to writing books. His works on the subjects magick and the occult (16 titles in print, translated into 12 languages) have earned him in the last 20 years a respectable position in world of modern mystical literature and a loyal following of readers (as of December 2010 over 144,000 books sold). He has 5,000 FaceBook friends, 4,250 Facebook Fans, 3,000 MySpace friends, and followings on Twitter, Reverbnation, Last.fm and other networking sites.
A 2006 Canadian television documentary highlighting DuQuette's life and books prompted him to pick up his guitar and return to the stage and studio. He lectures extensively throughout the world and to the approval of his audiences, now incorporates his songs into many of his presentations. His third CD, "I’m Baba Lon", produced by Kimberly Hallas was released in 2012 and is available for sale at Mystical Parlors.
Lon Milo DuQuette is a true original, seasoned and comfortable in performing his creations alone accompanied only by his guitar and his comedic wit.
