"Myths" (Official Music Video) - Munk Duane

Award winning recording artist and film composer Munk Duane is once again teaming up with Dom Portalla for the official music video for "Myths". Portalla directed "Another Day Another Bullet" for Duane, which won The New England Music Award for Video of the Year in the 2019, and the video for "Dangerous" in 2020.

The video was filmed on location at The Spire Center for Performing Arts (GPPAC) in Plymouth, MA. Munk fell in love with the venue after performing at the former Methodist church turned mecca for the arts, music, theatre, dance and educational facility. Built in 1886, "The Spire" is a cultural asset in historic Plymouth's downtown area.

The official music video for "Myths" will once again feature Matt Heisler on drums ("Dangerous", "Fanblade"), Steve Davis on bass ("Another Day Another Bullet", "Dangerous", "Fanblade") as well as Arman Wali on keys and Munk's son Trey Ciano, who already has an impressive array of Hollywood acting credits including "The Marvelous Mrs Masel", "Dexter: New Blood", "Julia", and the upcoming Whitney Houston biopic "I Wanna Dance With Somebody". Clearly, entertaining runs the in family blood.

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."

FVMusicBlog - "Munk Duane is a supremely talented artist who is making music that is leading the indie-pop genre forward into 2023."

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's music has been licensed to hundreds of television and film productions such as Hulu's Pam & Tommy, 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.

Recently, Munk has been busy composing for companies like Extreme Music, the production music arm of Sony Music Publishing. Extreme Music creates and licenses music for use in television, film, advertising, and online media.

"Seeing my name next to Hollywood composing legends on the Extreme platform is completely surreal.", Munk explains. Extreme Music is powered by A-List talent including Quincy Jones, Hans Zimmer, Snoop Dogg, deadmau5, Ice-T, Sir George Martin, Atticus Ross, Tina Guo, Ramin Djawadi, Harry Gregson-Williams, Michael Giacchino, Timbaland, James S. Levine, Xzibit, and Junkie XL.

Additionally, the smart sleep device company Hatch contracted Duane to create an entire custom channel for their product. Munk recorded over 10 hours of exclusive original content, that follows specific scientific methodology to help users wind down, sleep, and wake up feeling refreshed. Hatch is the second company Munk has worked with to help restless souls reach an optimal sleep state. His previous engagement composing for the Bose Sleepbud II helped inform compositional and sound design choices, specially designed for the task.

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 for the Professional Development Seminar at his alma mater Berklee College of Music.
