Irish singer/songwriter Mundy released his debut single, To You I Bestow in 1996. This was included on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s Shakespeare adaptation Romeo & Juliet, and it sold 11 million copies worldwide! His second multi-platinum record 24 Star Hotel, included hit tracks July and Mexico. His smash hit Galway Girl was recorded as an encore to his first live album and went on to become the bestselling single and most downloaded song 2 years in a row in Ireland. He is one of a number of artists to successfully make the transition from street busking in Dublin to international stardom during the ’90s.
Mundy went on to release the multi platinum record 24 Star Hotel, with hit tracks ‘July’ and ‘Mexico’ becoming firm favourites. Raining Down Arrows, which hit the #1 slot in the Irish Album Charts, came next and was recorded in the musically revered city of Austin, Texas. His first live album Live and Confusion followed recorded at a storming and sold out Vicar St show. It was certified platinum in 2007.
His 4th studio album, Strawberry Blood, followed in 2009 and saw Mundy touring Ireland, Australia and the UK once more. Shuffle was released in 2011 and was a gorgeous ode to some of Mundy’s most favourite songwriters. He teamed up with Youth again, who produced his debut album, the critically acclaimed Jellylegs, which yielded such hit songs ‘ Gin and Tonic Sky’, ‘Life’s A Cinch’ and ‘To You I Bestow’. The latest album ‘Mundy’ was released in 2015.
