Silk Satin Suede, aka Max Duncan, is an artist aiming to balance life's Beauty & Darkness.
Based in Nelson, New Zealand, he works in the mediums of music, theatre, film, fashion, poetry, and curation, fusing them together with like-minded collaborators in his emotive avant-garde style.
Silk Satin Suede has harboured brilliant artists over the past couple years, such as composer and multi-instrumentalist, Andrew Denison, film director, James Grimley, and dancer, Tessa Brown.
In 2018, author Michael Munro described his performance art show 'Curtains of a Candle'; “A fantastic piece of creative work of Russian type depth, which philosophically dramatises the one compelling aspect of our entire existence - our relationship with Death.”
Currently, Silk is the vocalist for live looping duo, Genre Fluid. The other half to this dynamic group is multi-instrumentalist, Bosho. They continue to captivate audiences of all ages with their improvised theatrical stage shows across New Zealand, and particularly to a growing community in the city of Nelson.
They have opened for huge Kiwi acts over the past year including Bic Runga at Summer Sounds Music Festival, Mako Road and Albi & The Wolves at RoomTwenty5, as well as a nationwide tour with American rapper, Hoody Time.
Genre Fluid’s debut EP will be released in a couple months.
