“Soaring melodies that can spirit you away, vivid lyrics that are sometimes dreamlike, sometimes matter of fact, story painting with stunning imagery and amazing gigs that has us eatin? the songs straight from his palm, he? s a gift? Damien Dempsey
?The Galway Girl is the one thing I?m sure to be remembered for. I owe a lot of that to Mundy? the biggest hit was his version. People probably won?t even remember who the fuck I was, but they?re going to be singing that song in Ireland for a long time. I really do believe that. And that?s the only kind of immortality anybody can hope for.? Steve Earle
Irish singer/songwriter Mundy is one of a number of artists to successfully make the transition from street busking in Dublin to international stardom during the ’90s, a prestigious list that includes the Frames, the Hothouse Flowers, and, more recently, Paddy Casey and Rodrigo y Gabriela. Mundy’s mainly acoustic, folk-based pop/rock has been compared to Damien Rice and Josh Ritter; however, his style is more upbeat and celebratory than either, and his jangle pop influence and tendency to experiment with unconventional sonic textures and beats (his debut album was overseen by acclaimed indie electronic producer Youth) further distinguishes him, a tendency that partly led to the breakdown of his relationship with his pop radio-oriented label.
Mundy is set to tour Australia in 2013 with a series of intimate shows including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Don?t miss your chance to get up close with Mundy this May.
