My name is Amy Duncan. I’m a native-born New Yorker who has been living in Rio de Janeiro since 1999. I’m a pianist/composer/arranger and have a 10-piece band, Brass Tacks, for which I do write all the music. I have also been a journalist, among the many other jobs I’ve done in my life. I’ve written a book about my life, and this blog is about the book and anything else that may come to mind!
