WE LOVE THE PEOPLE WHO WEAR OUR GLASSES. MOST OF ALL WE LOVE THEIR STORIES. HERE IS ONE OF THEM.
Deutsch Duke – Writer, Recorder, Producer of Music
Rising star of the Australian music scene, Deutsch Duke, has been killing it lately with features on Triple J, A set at Splendour in the Grass, Touring with Flight Facilities and Peking Duk, Secret Sessions in LA and more. Read a little more about him, and his story, below:
To call Deutsch Duke a rising star of music is actually a bit of a fallacy – Deutsch Duke has been, both as a recording artist and producer under various stage names, creating hits around the world for over 2 decades including work with global superstars like Mariah Carey.
Deutsch Duke takes all of those learnings and combines them into music that highlights all of his vocal, musical and producing chops. And, as a huge fan of Sneaking Duck, he does it all while looking good!
Check out his latest single here and read a little more about the man below (the more astute amongst you might notice he’s been test-running some of our soon to be released Sneaking Duck sunglasses range)

Tell us a bit about what you do for a living?
I write, record and produce music. I love the creative process – starting from an idea. A spark. Then working through it until there’s something that didn’t exist before that resonates with an audience. The whole process is deeply personal. To create well you have to be authentic and being authentic means opening yourself up to the highs and lows of the process…the breakthroughs, and the doubts.
How did you get so good at what you do?
Lots of failures. Then trying again and again. The creative process is just that – a process.
What’s inspiring you these days?
I find inspiration daily in the smallest of things.
You seem really busy! How do you fit it all in?
I try not to sleep 🙂 But really, it’s about prioritising.
What’s your favourite way to spend time when not working?
I love grabbing the family and disappearing to Bali for as long as possible.
Favourite Sneaking Duck Glasses?
I’ve got a lot. Maybe too many – haha. My favourites right now are the ones I’m wearing in the picture – Bubblegum Quasars with a blue mirror. Big thanks to the Sneaking Duck team for adding me to the beta-testing group for their new Mirrored sunglasses range…actually am i allowed to talk about it yet? [ EDITOR: Sure 🙂 ]
What are the 3 items that you can’t live without?
My Wife, My Son and My studio
