Kurt Gunn


A pure songwriter, equally informed and introspective. A talented guitarist and composer, from a climate that compels musicians to devote compassion to their craft. From solo performer to bandleader, with a style alternately whimsical and weighted, Gunn’s range will draw you in and keep you in his crosshairs. You may not have heard of Kurt Gunn; he's far more interested in writing and performing music than promoting himself. But with seven solo albums to his credit, and a nominations for Singer-Songwriter of the year, Album of the year, and Male Vocalist of the year, by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry, Gunn's fan base has grown steadily, as his talented guitar work, turned phrases, and unique, impassioned songwriting continually garner attention in Green Bay and beyond. Kurt tastefully appropriates whichever styles best accompany his story-songs, capturing crowds whether he's leading a fluid cast of sympathetic musicians, or simply strumming and picking solo. Ultimately, Gunn's ability to lend both gravity and levity to his work -- sometimes within a single song -- is what will stun his listeners for years to come.
