Duncan, started gigging at the age of 17 and went on to work in touring bands throughout Australia and island entertainment residencies in his early twenties entertaining on keyboards, vocals and through his songwriting. He then began producing other acts. In his roles as keyboardist, programmer, arranger, producer and audio engineer, he has worked with unknown artists/bands, as well as some of the industries heavyweights and household names.
Duncan has always loved the creative process and enjoys guiding people along the path to achieving their creative goals. A songwriter himself, he also enjoys the collaborative process, which he believes to be one of the key ingredients to succeeding in today's music business.
He has produced and or engineered over 1000 albums and projects, which cover all styles and genres of music. From Heavy Metal and Grunge to R&B and Country or Electronica and Dance to Pop and Industrial. Duncan has worked on and/or won awards in all these styles.
