Hi! My name is Michael Duncan. I’m a music producer, mixer, recording engineer, and writer based in NYC. After years of playing and studying music in school, I started interning at Headgear Recording in 2010. A few months later, I left to assist a string of producers/engineers—beginning with Dan Romer, followed by John Siket, and later Andrew Maury—who all strengthened and energized my passion for music production. I also play guitar, keys, and bass.
Over the past few years, I’ve worked on songs and/or records by Ra Ra Riot, Atlas Genius, High Highs, Penguin Prison, Lewis Del Mar, Kisses, Cruisr, Static Jacks, RAC, Strange Names, Ian Axel and Chad King (of A Great Big World), Jenny Owen Youngs, Spencer Ludwig, Farah Siraj, Born Cages, Andy Suzuki & The Method, Diaz, Girls Who Care, Chris Ayer, Lelia Broussard, Paper Lions, Scavenger Hunt, Joshua Winstead (of Metric), Glass Tactics, Nate Walker, Hot Dad, Flor, The Just, and many more.
On the side, I work part-time for United Stations Radio Networks (which was co-founded by the late Dick Clark). I also have bylines in a few publications, including SonicScoop, The A.V. Club, Myspace, Flood Magazine, The Pro Audio Files, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, Substream Magazine, and Rock Edition. (Occasionally, I update my blog.)
