The Mike Duncan Project began as a group of musician/friends
from various churches in the Pittsburgh area came together
to record some of the songs of Mike Duncan singer/songwriter
currently leading worship at First Assembly of God in Coraopolis,
Originally from California, Mike spent years on the road
with his parents who had a band that toured the West coast.
Mike came to the Pittsburgh area in 6th grade after a parental
divorce. Mike has been singing and writing songs for as
long as he can remember. During his years at Aliquippa High
School, Mike was submersed in making hip-hop music for various
artists in the area and doing shows throughout the area.
After a long spiral down into the abyss that would swallow
many aspiring musicians, Mike turned to Jesus in 1996 and
began to write music that would bring glory to God and offer
a ray of sunshine to a dim world. Many of Mike's songs come
from personal experience of going through rough times in
which this life does not seem to have it's shortages of.
These songs can be used of the Lord to reach out to those
who are 'in the valley' or are in desperate need of Hope.
Feeling called to record some of these songs, Mike along
with the musicians hit the studio and thus began the Mike
Duncan Project (MDP).
The band is comprised of Mike Duncan(Lead Vocals), Joe Faulk
and Jeremy Yerse(Guitars), Josh Schneeberger the 17 year
old Drummer, Jesse Metcalf on the keys, and David Faulk
on Bass (Breaking E Strings Daily).
David Faulk, a graduate of Evangel bible college, has a
unique calling to evangelism, has been speaking and bringing
a life-changing message with passion to young people on
college campuses in various cities. The Mike Duncan project
offers a unique live experience by uniting exciting inspired
music with a powerful message from David Faulk. This tandem
approach has a great potential for bringing the life-changing
hope of Jesus Christ to the youth throughout the nation
and the world.
Within the Music you can hear musical inflences from a
wide array of styles. A Soulful vocal styling fused with
hard guitars, driving rhythms and beautiful piano licks
form their sound that is energetic and diverse. The song
"Watching Over Me" delivers the theme of Psalm
3 over a reggae hip-hop style groove with lyrics that you'll
find yourself singing along with after the first listen.
"We Will Sing" offers a glance into the book of
Revelation with hard hitting melodic speed while "Blessed
Be God" muses upon God's goodness with the help of
a warm piano and mellow harmonies.
Regardless of your musical preference, chances are you'll
hear something that speaks to on the inside while listening.
The Mike Duncan Project looks forward with excitement and
enthusiasm as they continue in the will of God bringing
music and life to the hearts and minds of a thirsty generation.
