About The Kingsway Music Library

The Kingsway Music Library is a boutique sample library created and curated by Grammy-Award winning producer Frank Dukes. Initially a place for Dukes to release volumes of his own compositions that were then sampled by many producers and artists on many pinnacle songs of the last decade, it grew to include compositions and releases from many young up and coming producers such as CVRE, FORTHENIGHT, Mino, Louis Bell, Wallis Lane, Allen Ritter and others.

Now with over 40 volumes of music available and hundreds of sample placements, the Kingsway Music Library has grown into a one stop shop for high quality, immaculately recorded compositions and musical pieces to be used in sample based productions or on their own for sync with film and television.

Through it’s producer roster and also its “Parkscapes” initiative with the Regent Park School of Music, Kingsway Music Library is devoted to not only providing the best source material possible to its client and customer base, but also the support and resources needed to usher in a more fair and collaborative musical ecosystem.
