2x New England Music Award Winner
The Hype Magazine - "Munk Duane crafts the perfect blend of groove-oriented conscious-R&B. His music has a purpose and in today’s social climate the messages are all too clear."
The Indie Source - “Munk Duane has refined his singer/songwriter sound to craft an expressive novel voice… urban and confident. Munk is mixing his ingenious composing skills with a mastery of pop that makes the sound his own. Complimented by seasoned lyricism, Duane finds his footing in R&B Funk while leaning into the soul that sets his music apart.”
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, and Prince, Munk crafts a sonic atmosphere that is traditional in inception and modern in execution.
Munk's music has been licensed to hundreds of television and film productions such as The 70th Annual Tony Awards, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Hawaii Five-O, 60 Minutes, NCIS and Blue Bloods, to The Sopranos, the Super Bowl Half Time Show and NCAA March Madness. He composed the original score for the 2015 Indie Thriller "The House Across The Street" starring Eric Roberts and owns Bad Stella Studios, just outside of Boston.
Munk Duane has appeared in major press including a feature in Billboard Magazine, as well as The Hollywood Reporter and The Boston Globe. He has been a guest lecturer at his alma mater Berklee College of Music.
