Most recently recognized for composing the music for the Broadway sensation Spring Awakening (which featured "Glee"'s Lea Michele during it's run), Duncan is making his return to pop music after a five year absence with Covers 80s. He originally launched his musical career in 1996 with his self-titled debut, which spawned the radio mainstay "Barely Breathing" and earned a Grammy nomination for "Best Male Vocal Performance, Pop". He's since released four studio albums, and has earned critical accolades for his unique brand of folk-pop music.
