Biography

Duncan Browne (25 March 1947 — 28 May 1993) was an English singer-songwriter.

Browne attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, studying both music theory and drama. He chose to become a musician when, in 1967, he met Andrew Loog Oldham, and signed with his Immediate Records label. His debut album Give Me, Take You was issued in 1968.

His choral arrangement was used on the Tim Hardin penned "Hang On to a Dream" on the album Nice, as recorded by The Nice in 1969.

Browne's biggest hit in the UK was the song "Journey" (UK number 23), as televised on Top of the Pops in 1972. The song was included on Browne's second album Duncan Browne in 1973.

In the 1970s, Browne formed band Metro with Peter Godwin and released some records in the United States on the Sire label. He released two solo albums: The Wild Places and Streets of Fire. The song "The Wild Places" was a hit single in the Netherlands. From the same period, Browne's co-composed song "Criminal World" was recorded by David Bowie on his 1983 Let's Dance album.
