ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Wise men have said that we enjoy music because it resembles the sphere-sounds of union. We have been part of that harmony before, so let us use these moments of treble and bass to keep our remembering fresh." -Jelaluddin Rumi

"Music is the religion of the future" -Hazrat Inayat Khan

Steeped in the tradition of the hermit, Brian takes life experience from ten years on the road and couples it with unanswered questions from conversations with master teachers, and gives them expression in the form of perfectly dark rock songs.

There is angst here, real and lovely, as well as extraordinary artistry. In addition to being a versatile guitarist and songwriter, he is one of the few westerners to possess the rare ability to harmonize with himself by singing two or more notes at a time. No circus act, this is truly a hypnotic phenomenon. From his throat can come the sound of a didgeridoo and the overtone of a flute, while he pounds away on the groove he's worn in the top of his guitar.

"Munk's Habit" represents the last six years of the career of dharma bum and journeyman artist Brian Jennings Wagoner, who is known on the west coast alternatively as Monk S'dyq. This album has simple songs, sung with acoustic guitar, one track of harmonic throat singing, and six songs from different incarnations of the band Underfoot. In it you will find rough gems inside songs about the city, about skydiving, about rites of passage, about bar talk, about love and fear, and about what it's like to live as if your life is art.

Munk's Habit Simply Amazing
What else can I say? This CD is amazing! Munk's Habit is one of those rare CDs that you can listen to straight through. No need to skip any tracks on this CD. Brian Wagoner has skillfully mastered the art that is.....music. If you are looking for a CD that has emotion and sincerity you should give this CD a listen. I recommend this CD and have not listened to much else since purchasing it.
Five Stars.

Great new songs in addition to classic older ones.
I've been looking forward to hearing new music from Wagoner for a few years. The new tracks on Munk's Habit were a nice EP-sized quenching of my musical-thirst. 'You Know This' was worth the price of the disc alone.

The older tracks from the Underfoot days are a fantastic treat to people not familiar with them and a pleasant reminder to those who are. I can now calmly wait for more from Brian -- hopefully not near as long as last time.
