Duncan MORLEY has 3 TIMES TOPPED the Billboard CHARTS REACHING TOP 10, TOP 25 and Top 40. He’s RECENT smash single, “Find You Now,” featuring none other than hip-hop mogul Rick Ross CLIMBED to #6 ON BILLBOARD DANCE CLUB PLAY CHARTS. AND MORLEY ACCOMPLISHED THIS ALL AS AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST.
The catalyst for Duncan’s SUCCESS WAS A spiritual awakening that inspired a newfound purpose in life with R&B-tinged pop front and center as his platform to effect positive change. “I have this drive in my soul to bring people up, it’s not a choice,” the Boston-based artist says.
The multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer and performer shares his positive messaging through an invigorating blend of pop, R&B and electronic music. The results of such genre melding and uplifting vibes is that Duncan seeks to chase chills when he goes into the studio. He pens exhilarating pop melodies and lyrics that brim with clever wordplay and multi meanings. Seekers will find tucked beneath his broadly resonant pop universal spirituality and positive transformation.
Duncan’s first big break came when DJ Paul Oakenfold remixed his single “If Time Runs Out,” catapulting the record onto Billboard Magazine’s dance/club play charts as the “Hot Shot Debut.” The song went on to reach the Top 25 spot on Billboard, earning thousands of spins on radio stations across the country and features on iHeart Radio, MTV, Music Choice, Sirius XM, and MusicWeek, to name a few. His follow-up song, “You Gave Me Love,” returned him to the Billboard dance charts Top 40. Now, Duncan is poised to garner even more exposure with his latest single, “Find You Now,” being a collaboration with Rick Ross, and featuring Rick in a video directed by SPIFF TV.
To date, the Rick Ross collaboration has been Duncan’s biggest coup. Upon receiving Rick’s blessing as a collaborator, he summoned Duncan down to his mansion in Atlanta. “Meeting Rick, I realized immediately he had such presence—like he was a king in another life,” recalls Duncan. He continues: “It was surreal. I came back from that experience feeling on top of the world. Dreams really do come true.”
These dreams are the outcome of a profound darkness to light narrative that led Duncan to meditation, the power of positive thinking, and a life of being in tune with the universe.
Duncan HAS GONE about pursuing music with unrelenting determination. Though he had sang all his life inspired by classic RNB, he initially migrated to Los Angeles to study production and make beats. Gradually, his focus shifted from dominating in the studio to conquering the stage. Armed with production skills, prodigious gifts as a vocalist, sharp wordsmith instincts, and an inspiring message, Duncan set out to launch a big-time career.
Duncan is now ready to overtake the pop charts His next follow up, “Your Love,” is a slow-burn R&B ballad showcasing Duncan’s dynamic range, easing from soulful weary low-tones to a soaring honeyed falsetto. It also epitomizes Duncan’s multi-layered approach to lyrics. In the chorus, he sings: I just need your love/Your love is like a drug. “One meaning is about a love or relationship that you can’t get off your mind, thinking about that person and the memories makes you crave their love again, like addiction to a drug. But the real deeper meaning is about trying to make sense of the madness in the world, see through all the noise and reconnect with your inner self”
Duncan’s life is a testament to self-belief and the power of hitting bottom and rising up. “For me, it’s a story of how you can change the world by just changing yourself. Dream big, live big, put in your 10,000 hours, and don’t let anything get between you and your goal. Don’t allow room for failure. If you have faith in yourself all the pieces will fall into place.”
