Hey! My name is Michael Duncan. I’m a record producer, mixer, and engineer based in New York City. After years of studying music in school, I began my career as an intern at Headgear Recording, a studio frequented by bands like TV on the Radio, The Hold Steady, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The National. Shortly thereafter, I left to assist a string of producers and engineers—beginning with Dan Romer, followed by John Siket, and later Andrew Maury—who all strengthened my passion for music production.

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, Gaby Alter, Tomy Lobo, Saint Blonde, and many more.

On the side, I work part-time as an audio archivist for United Stations Radio Networks (co-founded by the late Dick Clark). In 2020, I’ve been helping put together Alice Cooper’s Vintage Vault podcast. I also recently built a self-updating daily aggregator called Audio Comb—featuring leading news, podcasts, and videos on everything related to music-making.

Before all of the above, I ran a website for a few years where my team and I interviewed hundreds of bands—everyone from The Doors, Thin Lizzy, and The Yardbirds to Cannibal Corpse, The Devil Wears Prada, and Opeth. Although I don’t write as much these days, you can find my byline in a few publications, most notably SonicScoop, The Pro Audio Files, and The A.V. Club. In my free time, I enjoy partaking in music courses via Berklee Online, Coursera, and Masterclass.
