Twenty-something Christopher Duncan is a Scottish singer/songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland who was raised by classically trained musical parents. He followed in their footsteps, but detoured into dreamy acoustic-based pop.
“At the time that I signed with Fat Cat Records I was just writing random songs,” explains Duncan. “There was no idea of an album behind it. It wasn’t until close to the end of the album that the whole thing started making sense.”
Roughly two years ago Duncan sent a demo to the label. They immediately put it on their website’s demo page. Within a two-month period they made the offer to sign him. “It was a pretty straightforward deal, actually,” says Duncan. “I sent music to one other label, but I really liked Fat Cat because I like a lot of the other artists on their label.”
A debut single entitled “For” was released as a download on Nov. 24. A full-length album is slated for release sometime this summer.
“The label is handling all the other stuff that I’m not very good at, like PR and getting gigs,” says the young Scotsman. “The arrangement I have with them is that we are just taking it one step at a time, for the moment, and see where it goes.”
Plans for touring will commence for the U.K. and Europe in 2015 as well. “I’ve spent a lot of time working by myself recording music,” says the multi-faceted musician. “So, it’s really nice to get encouragement and feedback from the folks at Fat Cat. They give me the support to continue doing what I do.” – Eric A. Harabadian
