Boston based Recording Artist, Producer and Film Composer Munk Duane has a style deeply rooted in late 60s and early 70s Soul and Pop, with unapologetic nods to legends such as Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Prince and Stevie Wonder, crafting a sonic atmosphere that is traditional in inception and modern in execution. Channeling spirits of the past and filtering them through a 21st century aesthetic, Munk manifests an evolution by daring to experiment in hybrids.
Munk is currently eligible For Your GRAMMY® Consideration for Best Pop Solo Performance for his song "Myths", which appeared as the title character's theme in the 2023 film "The Getback" starring Theo Rossi and Kim Coates from "Sons of Anarchy" and Dermot Mulroney.
