C Duncan was born and raised in Glasgow by two classical musicians. After graduating in composition from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland he began work on his first album. Four albums in he has been shortlisted for the Mercury Prize and shortlisted three times for the SAY Award. His most recent album ‘Alluvium’ was released in August 2022 by Bella Union. As well as writing and recording albums, he has had classical pieces performed by the RSNO, BBC SSO and NYOS, and has written soundtracks for documentaries and films.
‘Alluvium’ is an album about change and acceptance. It’s about moving forward and ending up somewhere totally new and unexpected. Each song has a personal story attached to it, but the overarching idea of change and acceptance that’s interweaved throughout the album comes from a personal need for equanimity and a willingness to embrace these changes.
