Upcoming Show at Notes and an Update from Matt


Hello my friends!

It’s been a long while since I’ve written you to let you know what’s happening with my music…too long. First off, I want to invite you to a special show I’m playing at a new venue in Columbus called Notes (http://www.copiouscolumbus.com/new-index/). The show is October 24th, 8:30pm til 11:30pm. I’ll be joined by my longtime partners Jack Knuttila on drums and Roger Hines on the bass. We hope you can make it out to support us! We’d love to see you…

Now the update…. some of you will remember that I finished 700 Miles in 2013 and that I was able to do some touring of a dozen or so cities in conjunction with the cd’s release in 2014. You may not know that I hired a publicity and booking agency out of New York City to help me get my music out further than before. Truth be told that was a big bust. Lesson learned. Given how happy I was with the recording and where I was musically, the nearly complete failure of the firm to produce results for the heavy sum I paid, was devastating. After that happened I kinda crawled into a hole as far as promotion was concerned. I recommitted myself to what I’ve always done…. playing the gigs and writing new songs. At this point, I’ve got enough good ones to begin the work on a 5th album which I hope to record in 2016. The working title is Walking in the Light.

I’m playing 4 nights a week steady at my residencies in Columbus and very active in the original music scene. I’m playing nursing homes and assisted living communities again, which is where I started playing publicly as a kid. And I’ve also been playing at different churches that have invited me due to some of my newer songs being faith inspired. I’m even playing Catholic mass regularly at St. Mary’s in Delaware, OH. I’m usually there at least once a month.

Thank you to all of you for making my journey in music possible… I wish you all the very best… let me know how you are doing too!

Maybe I’ll get to see you @ Notes October 24th?!

A Christmas Letter to All

Blessings and joy be with each one of you!

Here in the last days of 2014, I wanted to reach out and share with you all an update on my life and work.

First off, I’ll tell you what I’ll be up to in the coming days. On Christmas Eve @ 7:30am, I will be on Sunny95’s Live radio show. 94.7FM in my hometown Columbus, Ohio, or live on the web here – http://sunny95.com/choose-your-stream/.

Then, I’ll be part of The Fifth Annual Beatles Marathon, on Dec 27th at The Bluestone.  Read about this uniquely amazing show and purchase tickets here – http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-fifth-annual-beatles-marathon-tickets-13998316341  I will be playing and singing Real Love and Free As a Bird (by John Lennon posthumously released with the help of Paul, George, and Ringo) near the end of the night around 11:30pm. The show starts at noon!!! 215 songs by a group of 15 musicians – I did it last year and it was amazing. There will be over 1000 people there this year.

My next big trio show is January 23rd at Dicks Den, 9:30pm-1:30am.

I still play Wednesday’s at The Top in Bexley now for 5 ½ years

I’m playing Thursdays now at Luce Nuove in Powell…

I’m the resident pianist singer at Eddie Merlot’s in Polaris on Fridays and Saturdays…

ALWAYS reach out to me via matt@mattmunhall.com to make sure I’ll be at those places on particular nights youre planning to come….

Gratefully, this has been my busiest private party count for the holidays so far in my career, and as always let me know if I can be of help in that department (including weddings).

I’m still playing with my Trio both publicly and privately.

I’m still writing and recording and growing.

My son is now a bright, loving, and funny 5 year old, who I adore, and continue to be able to spend much of my days with.

Let me know, how have you’ve been?

And…Merry Christmas and a Happy 2014!!!

Matt Munhall

Kickstarter Album Release Show Success

Kickstarter Release Show Banner

The Kickstarter release show at the Lincoln Theatre was a great success! There were over 450 tickets accounted for out of 500 seats!

We are now working on releasing 700 Miles nationally and internationally in early 2014. There has been quite a buzz building…and we are hard at work on some heavy plans to make that buzz spread across the country and in Europe.

If you would like copies of the CD’s initial pressing, you can email matt@mattmunhall.com and request info. There are a limited quantity and we will not be pressing any more until early 2014. They make a great stocking stuffer and you can say you were among the very first to have one! When they’re out, they’re out. A couple typos therein will guarantee it is from the initial pressing and Matt will even sign each one!

Also, here are the places Matt will be playing in December. You will also be able to buy these limited CDs there.

  • Dec. 4 The Top 6-9:30pm
  • Dec. 6 Ocean Club 6-11pm
  • Dec. 11 The Top 6-9:30pm
  • Dec. 14 Ocean Club 6-11pm
  • Dec. 18 The Top 6-9:30pm
  • Dec. 19 Eddie Merlot’s 6-10pm
  • Dec. 21 Eddie Merlot’s 6-10pm
  • Dec. 26 Eddie Merlot’s 6-10pm
  • Dec. 28 Eddie Merlot’s 6-10pm

Again, email matt@mattmunhall.com for info on getting Matt’s new CD in it’s initial pressing. Thanks!

Matt in the Press

Matt has recently been featured in an article written by Andy Downing of Columbus Alive titled “New life inspires Matt Munhall to write about death”.

On “How Did I Ever Get This Far,” the singer pictures himself standing at the pearly gates, while “When I’m Gone,” envisions those left behind to deal with the aftermath. Then, on “Heart of a Man,” a father races home to his dying daughter, counting down the miles on the highway (“700 miles … 300 miles … 100 miles”) and praying she can hold on long enough for him to say goodbye. “Momma starts to panic, voice is shakin’ on the phone,” Munhall sings atop delicate piano chords and a lush bed of strings. “Before the sun goes down I’ve got to make it home.”

Additionally, Matt was also highlighted in This Week Community News about his upcoming 700 Miles album release show for his Kickstarter campaign.

Local pianist/singer/songwriter Matt Munhall will celebrate the release of his fourth album, 700 Miles, with a Friday, Nov. 22, gig in the Lincoln Theatre.

A host of top-notch central Ohio musicians will join Munhall for the gig, some of whom played on the record, which was recorded in Nashville — a first for Munhall.
