Philadelphia-born, self-taught musician Nick Mundy started his musical odyssey at the young age of 17 as lead singer and guitarist for London Records’ family group, "The Beck Family."
Nick continued his journey with another Philadelphia family group, "Sister Sledge," as their musical director and guitarist. He performed on their album titled My Guy.
Columbia Records industry veterans Cecil Holmes and Ron Mosley saw green in Mundy and believed it wasn’t long before Nick’s 12-inch single, “Ain’t It Alright,” hit the streets.
Nick left the East Coast for Los Angeles to pursue his artistry. Armed with only one hundred dollars and 14 songs, he promptly landed himself a publishing deal with MCA Publishing and Warner Chapell Music. It wasn’t much time before Nick was signed to Warner Brothers by Benny Medina. He released his first solo album in 1985 titled, “Your Kind of Guy.”
Along the way, Nick found time to co-write and produce songs such as Talk to Me for Chico DeBarge; Trade Him In with Janice Ian; Jody Mowatt Working Wonders What Comes Naturally for Sheena Easton; This Song for Jeffrey Osborne; Roll The Dice for Color Me Badd; Personality for Kashif, Gina Go Go Gomez, Alexsander O’Neal and John Pagano; Let’s Get To It for Wild Orchid and Fergie; All About You boy, Eric Benet; Christmas Mom for LaToya Jackson with Cerrone “Oops, Oh, No!” for Phil Perry Who you love Carl Thomas Motion and Tony Terry; and Try My Love for Jeremy Jordan… just to name a few.
Naturally, it was only a matter of time before Nick returned to doing exactly what he was meant to do – crafting song after heartfelt song for himself for his self-released CD titled “Just Songs.” In this album he finally is able to release himself from the shackles of having to write an album of cuts in just one style or another. With this CD, Nick’s fans can truly appreciate his multi-faceted, genre-crossing artistry.
Sit back and take this journey with Nick. Released on Nick’s own label, “Blackyard productions,” it’s been a long time coming, but worth every second of the wait!
