Had William Faulkner or Cormac McCarthy turned their creative impulses toward musical composition, the result might very well have been something akin to Munly & The Lee Lewis Harlots. Often described as, 'a thinkin' man's country music,' Munly's wide vocal range, from a low bass to a high soprano, on top of the Harlot's dark, often sensuous string arrangements make for a unique sound that remains long after the music stops. From the dirge-like despair of "Jacob Dumb," the almost frenetic ditties like "Of Silas Fauntleroy's Willingness to Impress the Panel", to what seems to be a classic, "Big Black Bull Comes Like A Caesar," the creative depth and range is at once challenging and invigorating. One can't help but have the distinct feeling that these songs were heart wrenchingly conceived and crafted. An impressive marriage of musical arrangement and instrumentation with jaw-dropping lyrical storytelling, Munly & The Lee Lewis Harlots is altogether an intoxicating, seductive musical experience.

Munly has been performing for the past decade with various backing musicians. He has released four solo albums to date and his fifth, Munly & The Lee Lewis Harlots, (co-released between Smooch and Alternative Tentacles) is the culmination of his experiences and acheivements. Munly is also the front sideman of Slim Cessna's Auto Club and has written songs for the Auto Club's past two albums. An artist in the true sense of the word, Munly has been active in many different media through the years. His book “Ten Songs With No Music”, is a collection of his songs in story format from all of his past albums. His writing has gained him attention in other areas, garnering the prestigious 'Young North American Playwright' award, and his music was even featured on Melrose Place. Munly himself has also acted on MTV’s “Austin Stories”.

Munly & The Lee Lewis Harlots is a co-release with Smooch Records. Visit the Smooch website for more info.
