Deep Thoughts on My City of Ruins

Hey this is Dave Man the Cave Man! I’m taking on the posting responsibilities for Matt’s website (What a honor!). I have been a long time brother of Matts for 22 years now and I have loved every minute of it.

Matt Munhall is flying high in CBus and is rocking mad vocals in his cover of My City of Ruins by the Boss! It’s amazing how music brings us all together, lifts us up, and gives us hope during these trying times. Matt Munhall’s flowing hair, and boisterous voice illuminates the song to new heights. The song is inspirational and warms the soul. Take a peak at the video when you have time and I know everyone has 5 minutes to spare. Take care everyone and may God be with you!

I Met Mr. Dylan

I got to meet Mr. Dylan once because of Charlie Sexton taking me to a show. We had just finished making a record together. And I can tell you from being near Bob a few times and having met him once, he certainly contains multitudes. I’ll just say this – nobody ever looked me over back-and-forth and up-and-down for as long as Bob Dylan did . He didn’t look pleased!!! (Who is this guy with cheap clothes and a red face, and why is he standing next to Charlie!)

Hahaha…Enjoy this awesome song – don’t forget this man has not stopped touring in several decades. Pretty sure you’re gonna make it to heaven before they close the door Bob:-) oh, one more thing- I paid Charlie 1000 bucks to play on my record he never cashed the check I texted him once and said did you wash the check in your jeans or something ? and he said “least I can do” wow that was amazing – huge heart there / thank you Charlie Sexton

A CHRISTMAS LETTER TO ALL

Hello all!

After a long pause in my public communication with my supporters, I’m grateful to send all of you my warmest holiday greetings!

It has been a year of seismic shifts.

As most of you know I’ve been a working musician for the last 16 years and continue to be so. Yet, what it looks like now and what it looked like a year ago are two very different things. Looks aside, I am still Matt Munhall, still writing my story for you all and ultimately the glory of God, I am still singing my heart out, and aiming to unearth the true meaning of this gift of life I am so blessed to live. 

Even though I’m not regularly playing public gigs these days I do have a few things coming up…

You can tune in to Sunny 95’s Old Fashioned Christmas on Christmas Eve morning at 7:20 AM and hear me and my band performing my arrangement of Do You Hear What I Hear?https://sunny95.com/events/sunny-95s-old-fashioned-christmas-show/

I’m also playing February by the Fire at the Worthington Public Library, it’s a showcase series that features Central Ohio‘s best musical artists and songwriters. My concert will be at 4 PM February 15th. Get there early the seats fill up fast:-)

And, on March 14th, I’ll be playing a intimate solo show at the Appalachian Listening Room, 48 Main St. in Logan Ohio from 7:30-9pm. This is also a small room so seats may go fast!

I’m sure my public concerts will once again increase as I get my new position as the Director of Music and Liturgy more and more organized.

It’s the best thing that could happen for me. I’m directing choirs, working with cantors, selecting all the repertoire from classical music through modern praise and worship, and learning all kinds of new to me music. I’m also learning to manage a much larger range of responsibilities on a permanent basis as opposed to, for instance, making a record for a couple months.

Because of my gratefulness in the goodness of these changes, and because it’s Christmastime, please indulge me in telling some more of my thoughts…

I believe God works in every human life. In some people’s lives, they can see it, regardless of what different names they give it. For others, it is obscured by so much suffering that it is understandable that they find themselves at a loss to see the hand of a loving God. As a life long follower of Christ (and fallen sinner), I continue to grow in understanding of the meritorious nature of His suffering when He chose to love us with the entirety of His Being. I am very grateful that God has made the changes of this last year possible.

That, my friends, is what I believe Christmas is all about. The Choice of God to love us all unconditionally and open His Eternal Life to us. It’s my deepest prayer for myself, for those closest to me, and all that we might receive His Love, His Birth, His Life, born again in all of us on this Christmas morning in a deeper way than ever.

Luke is now nine years old and he enjoys school, tae kwon do (brown belt), football, drawing, and music.

We’ll see what kind of musical adventures take place in 2019 in addition to the work I’m doing at St. Francis DeSales in Newark, Ohio.

Love is the first priority, more and more.

Merry Christmas 🙂

My very best,

Matt Munhall

Miracle on Broad Street CD Release Concert

Dear music friends,

It’s been a while, Happy Holidays to you! Hope you have some quality time to be with the people you cherish… I have two exciting things to share with you. First I’ll write about the new CD pictured above, then I’ll let you know about my plans to make a Matt Munhall Christmas album this year!

I was blessed to be able to help write, play piano, and sing on a handful of tracks for a new charity album of original Christian music titled Miracle on Broad Street with Parker MacDonell, a long time collaborator. It’s available online now on iTunes and Spotify. Here is a version of Blind Bartimaeus that I sing and play solo on the new album. You will be blown away by the sound of the 9 foot Bösendorfer piano I recorded it on in the sanctuary at Broad Street Presbyterian. https://open.spotify.com/track/5sHDFoMsveYNG1Zpv0XwuC

CDs are available for a donation of $10 plus shipping and handling by contacting Rosalind Swayne at (614) 221-6552 or office@BSPC.org.  Order in the next day or two if you want them in time for Christmas! All proceeds in excess of the costs of the project will be donated to the Broad Street Food Pantry and Catholic Relief Services.

You are invited to the cd release concert at Broad Street Presbyterian Church in Columbus, Ohio, on February 3, 2018 at 7pm. The concert will be exceptional and it’s free!

And now, I want to announce to all that I’m planning to make a Matt Munhall Christmas Album with Brad Jones in Nashville in 2018 and put on an awesome Christmas show in Columbus, Ohio, next December to release it!  I hope to launch a kickstarter campaign soon to raise money to make the recording through pre-sales of the cd and tickets to the Christmas show.
I wish you and yours a beautiful and sacred holiday season, and a fruitful and joyous 2018.
My very best,

Matt Munhall
