Back in the ’90s, an 18-year old Mundy moved to Dublin from his home town Birr, Co.Offaly, where he became a familiar face on the open mic circuit. After a break up, he penned some of his most popular songs: ‘Gin and Tonic Sky’ and ‘To you I Bestow’ (which later featured on Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ movie soundtrack).
Shortly afterwards, Mundy got signed by Epic Records and his debut album ‘Jelly Legs’ was released in October 1996.
Mundy has since released 8 Albums which showcase his Rock, Americana, Folk and Indie styles. Six of these albums have been in the Top Ten in Ireland.
Mundy has enjoyed gold and multi platinum record sales in Ireland and also picked up Meteor awards for ‘Best Male’ and ‘Most Downloaded Song’ (for 2 years running).
Mundy has toured all over the world and has supported many of his favourite acts: Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, R.E.M, White Stripes,The Waterboys and the Pogues.
In 2014, Mundy was invited to perform for Barack Obama at the White House as part of their St.Patrick’s Day celebrations.
So, what does the future hold for Mundy?
“Well, I’ve written a lot of new songs, some that are going down great live and I have more than enough for an album, but I am waiting to meet the right Doctor to do the operation with. I am in the process of making an E.P with the artist Glen Hansard and producer and old friend, Karl Odlum (Mic Christopher, Gemma Hayes, Interference) for a 2020 release”.
