Joe Duncan

Another from the Speak Easy. Joe Duncan first began performing in 2009, and after taking a four-year break from performing, Joe came back onto the scene late last year with his new single ‘The Ghost’. The track received extensive airplay on BBC Radio Humberside’s Introducing show and will be included on a forthcoming release later in the year. His live performances at the Sesh, Fruit’s New Year’s Eve ‘Frootenanny’ and the charity event ‘Gimme Shelter’ at Holy Trinity Church have been described as ‘haunting and delicate’ and drawn comparisons to Bon Iver and The National.   https://soundcloud.com/jduncanmusic
