C Duncan is a Scottish composer and musician, whose debut album Architect was nominated for the 2015 Mercury Prize. His work has featured on TV, including Waterloo Road, and has been performed by Icebreaker and the Sirens of Titan choir. His first solo single, For, was released in December 2014, and he is currently signed to Fat Cat Records. His music spans classical and pop, and has been described as lush, intricate and subtle. He’s toured extensively and supported Elbow on their last UK and US tours.

I knew Chris’s mum and dad who are notable classical musicians in Scotland, and have observed him since he was a young violist playing in Scottish youth orchestras. It was a delight to see him make a breakthrough into the world of independent experimental pop music in recent years. It’s another feather in the Tryst’s cap to expand our musical style and aesthetic with something different and non-classical again. C Duncan is one of the most innovative Scottish pop musicians to emerge in years.
