Munk Duane

With a sound that is traditional in its inception and modern in execution, Boston based Artist/Producer/Film Composer Munk Duane’s style is born of the late 60s, early 70s singer-songwriter inspired rock and soul of Bill Withers and The Rolling Stones, filtered through a 21st century aesthetic. “I am not a Rock artist. My voice is too influenced by Stax 60’s Soul, but I do love to play hard. I am not an Electronic artist. I love the creative manipulation of sound but I love traditional song structure more. I am not a Pop artist. Being born of The Beatles means accepting my inner ‘John’, as much as I consciously identify as a ‘Paul’. I am all of these things and none of these things. It took my entire life to come to this realization. I’m just now learning to accept this.” Munk has released four independent albums with songs that have been featured in over 250 television placements from CBS’s NCIS, NFL pre and post game shows and the 2010 Super Bowl Half-Time Show to multiple episodes of HBO’s The Sopranos, Disney XD and NCAA March Madness broadcasts, to name a few. The Berklee College of Music alumn has composed the musical score for the full-length indie features, and film festival award winners, “Conned” (Vanguard), “The House Across The Street” (staring Ethan Embry and Eric Roberts). Munk Duane has been featured in major press including the Boston Globe, The Hollywood Reporter as well as Billboard Magazine in an article focusing on his grass-roots methodology which drove over 20,000 paid downloads without the assistance of a record label. Boston Globe – “Munk crafts his music with intelligence and panache. Can superstar status be far behind?” Munk Duane’s recently released fifth album “Argue With Gravity” epitomizes an exploration of the timeless American Roots & Soul sound and buckles it in for an 88mph trip to the 21st Century. Written during travel to some of the most troubled parts of the country, Munk injects first-hand observational commentary on modern social ills into a musical package with one stylistic foot in the past and the other striding into the future.
