Irish singer/songwriter Mundy is one of a number of artists to successfully make the transition from street busking in Dublin to international stardom during the ’90s. Mundy’s mainly acoustic, folk-based pop/rock has been compared to Damien Rice and Josh Ritter; however, his style is more upbeat and celebratory than either, and his jangle pop influence and tendency to experiment with unconventional sonic textures and beats further distinguishes him.
Mundy signed with Sony subsidiary Epic Records, and released his debut single, “To You I Bestow”, shortly before his album “Jelly Legs” was released in 1996. “To You I Bestow” was included on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s Shakespeare adaptation Romeo & Juliet, alongside tracks by Radiohead and Garbage. It sold 11 million copies and “Jelly Legs” a respectable 50,000 worldwide.
