A recent alumni of Tileyard Education’s master course, MA Commercial Songwriting and Production, Duncan Brookfield, has amassed an incredible amount of success in just a few months. We caught up with Duncan to see what he’s been up to since earning his masters at Tileyard.

Also known as his artist name, BROOKFIELD, Duncan has been offered a publishing deal with a Swedish publisher and they’re still in negotiations. He has been regularly recording right here at Tileyard Studios. It’s important to him to build his connections and opportunities in the UK.

Duncan was recently offered the highly coveted bursary with Marshall Records. Marshall Records describes itself as a “full-service solution to musicians and bands, providing the platform from which they can create, record, produce, and promote their music”. According to Confetti Duncan will have the “opportunity to film a live session at their flagship studios, and collaborate with existing Marshall Records artist at their writing camp”. With over 3 million streams on Spotify for BROOKFIELD, “this is well deserved”.

Emma Stakes, one of Tileyard Education’s tutors as well as X-Factor talent scout and vocal coach, as taken him under her wing. She has been setting up a multitude of sessions for him both in London and abroad. She recently flew him out to Nashville, Tennessee for writing and producing sessions with the Palmer Global Ink team. An opportunity like this allows Duncan to network, build his portfolio, and broaden his work and resume to the United States. 

One of the most exciting opportunities for Duncan has been his sync deal with MasterCard. One of his tracks was recently featured in a MasterCard Champions League Ad. This sync deal is a fantastic career launcher for Duncan as it has brought him attention from large corporate companies like MasterCard.

Duncan is also collaborating with other artists. He is performing with singer/songwriter Tiggi Hawke on 30th October. The most exciting of all, Duncan starts his European tour ‘BROOKFIELD’ at the end of the year.
