Yellowbright, Inc. was founded in 2012 with the primary focus of the agency being artist-centered publicity, management, and development. As the agency grew, a booking division was added, including tour scheduling and execution, talent buying on behalf of venues and events, and strategic consultation for bands regarding contract and booking negotiation. In 2016, the agency evolved yet again, provide extensive consulting services and a year later, expanded to its current status: a marketing, promotions, events, and consulting agency dedicated to helping small businesses, entrepreneurs, and creatives.

She is a native of Minnesota, a graduate of the University of North Dakota, and has resided in Colorado since 1994. With a wide array of interests and experiences in the field of music, including work as a published author, journalist, and editor, Duncan has created a firm that focuses on creative people seeking to bring their work to the public and media, while concentrating on improving business bottom line. She brings a unique and lifelong experience creating interesting and engagement-focused promotions and events that map to a person’s or a company’s personality, with the result being deepened fan and customer experiences that withstand the test of time. Duncan is an accomplished painter and leader with extensive public speaking background, mainly centered around the topics she now trains individuals on, including “authentic entrepreneurship,” a term she coined in relation to a business column she wrote for two years for the Northern Colorado Business Report (now BizWest).
