Glaswegian singer-songwriter C Duncan (FatCat Records) returns to Brighton with a spellbinding set, combining his love of modern and classical music, to celebrate the release of his forthcoming album “Health”.

Born to two classical musicians, Duncan was surrounded by music throughout his childhood, and enrolled in the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where he studied music composition. A talented multi-instrumentalist and gifted live performer, his sound drifts far beyond genres; intertwining his classical training with contemporary influences to create a sonic identity that lies on the cusp of dream-pop.

Following the Mercury nominated debut “Architect” (2015,) an it’s impressive follow up “The Midnight Sun” (2016,) C Duncan’s highly anticipated third album sees the Scottish multi-instrumentalist ditch his bedroom studio and work with other producers, engineers and musicians for the first time. Navigating themes of love, anxiety and sexuality, “Health” – produced by Elbow’s Craig Potter – is a deeply personal record that delves into a world Duncan had previously felt uneasy exploring. Warm and harmonically rich, Duncan delightfully juxtaposes the vibrant and wholesome aesthetic of the album with an often-darker lyrical undertone.

As always Duncan has contributed all the artwork surrounding the release, and the colourful and natural aesthetic is reflected in the instrumentation and lyrics.
