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 late 60s, early 70s singer-songwriter inspired Soul and Blues, filtered through a 21st century aesthetic.
His sixth album, the recently released "Theory of History: Part 1" (2017), is deeply rooted in latter-day interpretation, with tips of the hat to everyone from Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye to Brian Wilson and The Rolling Stones. A quasi-political lyrical thread runs throughout, with artful commentary on the contentious tenor in todays America. The EP is Part 1 of a two part collection, with "Theory of History: Part 2" scheduled for release later in the year.
Munk Duane's music has popped up in hundreds of television and film placements from The 70th Annual Tony Awards, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Hawaii Five-O, 60 Minutes, NCIS and Blue Bloods, to HBO's The Sopranos, the 2010 Super Bowl Half Time Show and NCAA March Madness. He composed the original score for the 2015 Indie Thriller "The House Across The Street" staring Eric Roberts and Ethan Embry.
Munk has been featured in major press including the Boston Globe, The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard Magazine.
