Walsh Kunkel is a guitarist, composer and electronic musician hailing from Baltimore, Maryland.

These abilities and interests have been augmented by the Jazz Performance program at Towson University where he studied with the likes of Anthony Pirog, Kris Davis, Drew Gress, William Parker and many more. With a focus on combining electronic and acoustic music styles, Walsh Kunkel is forging his own sound and searching for ways to express his views of the world through his work. Walsh’s first self-produced single “Song For Evening Lights” is now available through his independent record label Shiny Boy Press.
