"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".
