Michael Munnik is a Canadian singer-songwriter living in Cardiff, Wales. His music infuses indie folk and Americana with a background buzz of 90s grunge and 70s songwriter. They say, “They don’t write songs like that anymore”, but Munnik gives attention to well-crafted lyrics, nesting them in music with guitar, ukulele, or bouzouki at their acoustic heart, embroidered with more wide-ranging elements. His songs draw inspiration from the places he’s walked and lived – the coast of British Columbia, an ancient pilgrim trail in Spain, or a second-floor apartment looking out onto a rainy Bronson Avenue.
New music is coming in 2023! Munnik has released two albums of original music – 2006 EP Long Shadows in the Afternoon and 2009 full-length I Am with the Hunters. Both are available to buy and download at Bandcamp or stream on your service of choice. You can hear his writing, bouzouki and backing vocals as a member of Ottawa Celt-punk sextet Siobhan.
