C Duncan, Castle & Falcon, Birmingham - 27th April 2019

Both C Duncan and supporting artists performed brilliantly. Wonderful musicianship and a lovely intimate venue. Very memorable gig

The music of C Duncan is intricate, haunting and spectral. Combing his love of classical music and a his superb talent of writing clever and catchy tunes, the dreampop sensation is fast becoming a big name.

The Glasgow based talent Christopher Duncan was born to two classical musicians in 1989. Growing up in an environment rich in musical talent, Duncan was introduced to a variety of instruments at an early age initially learning to play the piano and viola and progressing on to guitar, drums and bass in his teens. Possessing a keen interest in classical music and the means to play contemporary instruments, he enrolled in the Royal Scottish Academy Of Music And Drama to study composition where pieces of his own work would be performed by ensembles all over the country.

His debut album Architect, which also contains the singles For, Say, Garden, Here To There, was released through FatCat Records in July of 2015. Its striking blend of upbeat pop and offbeat sounds struck a chord with audiences and critics alike and saw C Duncan nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

He seamlessly merges interweaving vocals with the sounds of pastoral English folk and lush, 4ADesque dreampop. On He Believes in Miracles and the title track, both of which have a psychedelic shimmer, you realise that Duncan is just as comfortable when creating music to suit sunnier climes, making this a magical record for all seasons. ” - Tim Jonze, The Guardian

Not only a superb songwriter and composer, he is also an accomplished painter and has seen his work on display across Scotland. He also uses his talent for painting to create the artwork for his record covers.

Artist Bio

Glasgow’s C Duncan, born 1989, is the son of two classical musicians. Surrounded by music throughout his childhood, Christopher initially took up piano and viola. His teens led him to school bands " learning to play guitar, bass and drums " but did little to quell his fascination with the composition and performance of classical music. He eventually enrolled in Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) to study music composition, where his pieces were performed by various ensembles across the UK.
To hear C Duncan’s music now is to grasp those two common threads between his interests in classical and modern music. The pieces that make up his forthcoming debut LP are formed from lush choral harmonies and acoustic instrumentation, textured like contemporary dreampop and all recorded at home in Glasgow on his bedroom studio setup, gradually built up one layer and one instrument at a time. The results of this methodical and isolationist recording process give us charming lo-fi folk with the harmonic width of choral composition, the sweetness of barbershop and the rough eloquence that has so readily soundtracked Glasgow over the past decades.
Christopher is also an accomplished painter, naming Grant Wood and Gerhard Richter as influences. His work has been exhibited throughout Scotland and he provides cover art for his own records, expressing the same musical ideas through painted image.
