As a youth, Duncan 'DonCat' Nielsen's grandma gave him an odd pile of European released Beach Boys tapes, which lead him to the record store searching for other oddities. Coming from a family of music enthusiasts, including a dad with a penchant for Cream and the blue shades of Jimi Hendrix, a brother with drum line credentials and a composer himself, and a mother who did Linda Ronstadt's version of Blue Bayou at her high school talent show, he was poised for writing melodic music in a nostalgia-brand rock and soul format. He currently lives and makes music in the Corona Heights district of San Francisco, CA.
