David Munyon is a "topical writer" much like many of the folk legends and roots artists of todays acoustic tradition. David is a writer, performer, painter, artist, poet and farmer. He humbly promotes the book "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda. David has songs that are performed by Eric Burdon, Rick Travino, and Jennifer Warnes. He has worked Shows in the past, with Bill Monroe, Suzanne Vega, Richie Havens, THE BAND, The Drifters, the truely talented Terry Lee Hale, Joseph Parsons, Danial Putnam Green, Warren Haynes, Gene Gillespie and many others.
" David Munyon songs are great!" says Rolling Stone Magazine in Germany. David says "I just ask God, to help me write a good song for the folks and I just hold the guitar and pencil" and says, I'm very grateful for everything, my best friends work at Glitterhouse Records and Stockfisch Records, from Germany, and we are very blessed to know Gunter Pauler. We are hopeful that our songs may, in some way, bring happiness and comfort to people in this World and maybe if we all work together we can stop some of the pollution in the air, and maybe clean up the Rivers and Streams and The Oceans, and spread some love and harmony... and promote Peace". David adds, "Prayer is a Powerful Thing, years ago, I was home-less ...and just look what people's prayers have done for me...my wife Dixie's prayers and my friends and family's prayers, all that I have today... from the generosity of my friends in Germany and and Italy and Holland and Europe and The U.S.A and Canada, and France and Spain and Ireland... I still ask everyone to pray for me". "What is my message"? "I don't know , says David Munyon perhaps Love and Forgivness, Forgivness for everyone ... up to 77 times a day, and Love, and good coffee, and Peace".
David Munyon is Managed, on various days, by Greg Humphrey in Nashville and Ms. Georgina Moore in Los Angeles, and very much Managed by his wife, Dixie Blue.

DAVID MUNYON - Song For Danko 5/5
He may operate under the mainstream music biz radar but Munyon is one of the great soulful troubadours of modern America. Recorded at Abbey Road, birthplace of The Beatles’ magic that inspired him as a youth, this is worthy of their inspiration. A shimmering husky voice sings songs, such as the title track dedicated to The Band’s Rick Danko, that glow with mystical insights, his hypnotic acoustic guitar the only accompaniment. Such precious music should not go unnoticed. Check him out at www.mobilehomerecords.com
From the Real Roots Cafe, the Netherlands, August, 2006
David’s newest CD "Song for Danko", once more recorded Solo/Acoustic for his own label Mobile Home Records, is again the work from a real musical-genius. The CD and the title song is dedicated to Rick Danko from "The Band" who sadly died in 1999. "Buy me a ticket to London" comes true: On 11th July 2006 David recorded this fine sounding album with his friend and producer Roger Morrish at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London/UK. Guided by the spirit of George, John, Paul and Ringo, twelve wonderful tracks came out of David’s guitar and make this one to something very special – each song is different and each one is a pearl! He sings with a deep, warm and intense voice songs about dreams, friends, love and peace. Some he did in a very electrifying, bluesy way ("Hare Krishna Blues", "Keep it rockin’") and some in that indescribable style that gives me always the cosy creeps ("Sailor’s Song", "Vina’s Boy"). The touching song "Broken robot" is David’s friendly homage to all the people worldwide who are handicapped. "I will find you" and "I am this old guitar" are both beautiful songs he had written together in Germany with the German musicians and Singer/Songwriter buddies Matthias Biber Herrmann and Wolfgang Malende. "Word love" sung with the British artist Roy Bowden closes the album with David’s desirable message and touring-topic. Sir Paul Mc Cartney and a poster of Sgt. Pepper’s at his home inspired him to write this fine, world-needed song. All in all a remarkable album, worth to buy, that really deserves big international attention and success! (Mathias Pack)
The New Release "Waterside: the ghost of sonny hamm" is a compete hit! I was blown away when I heard the finals. The CD
was recorded in the U.S.A. at RSR Studios in Florida. It features Thomas McEniry on Drums, Doug Roberts and other guests on guitars and Phil Densmore on Bass.Various other artists joined in and the end result is this amazinginly raw, yet very strong presentation of what David is trying to convey in each song. In this writers opinion, this is what has been missing in music for a long time, emotion. David's raw and unique vocals send the whole thing over the top. My favorite tracks are "JImmy Hoffa" and "Flying Into Holland", yet it's one of those CD's that you can let play all the way through and enjoy every song.
