About Mundy …
In March 2014 internationally acclaimed songwriter Mundy received one of the highest accolades for an Irish musician when he was invited to play in front of President Obama and Irelandʼs then Prime Minister Enda Kenny as part of the St Patrickʼ Day Celebrations at the White House.
It was a long way from the small town of Birr Co.Offaly in Ireland where Mundy (a shortened version of his real name, Edmund Enright) was born and grew-up.
It was here that Mundy first picked up a guitar and started playing in the pub his parents owned.
His first album Jelly Legs, released in 1996, featured the song 'To You I Bestow' which was included on the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmannʼs 'Romeo and Juliet' movie adaptation, and which sold more than 11 million copies worldwide.
More hits and multi-platinum albums on his own label followed during the next decade including hit singles 'July', 'Mexico' and 'By Her Side ' as well as Mundyʼs version of Steve Earleʼs song 'Galway Girl' with Sharon Shannon.
The song became the most downloaded tune in Ireland for two years running, the studio version going to number one in the charts and picking up two Meteor awards, with the CD reaching multi-platinum status.
Since that time the Youtube video of the song has also received more than 5 million hits.
Mundy is an accomplished live performer and tours continuously in Ireland, U.K, mainland Europe, Australia and the USA. He has also played Bangkok,Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore earlier last year.
