Album Notes
Milwaukee folksinger and songwriter JYM MOONEY has released his newest solo CD, MOONEY TUNES AND MAYNARD MELODIES. This collection of warm, affectionate songs is a celebration of Jym’s large extended family, and, by extension, of your family as well. For many years Jym has been writing songs for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions, and now he has collected them all together to present a portrait of the lives of one family. The songs are by turns lovingly teasing, thoughtful, whimsical, nostalgic, and often downright hilarious. The arrangements range from a cappela vocals through tasteful picking by some of Milwaukee’s best acoustic musicians, including Jym’s fellow Moxie Chicks. While this is probably Jym’s most personal work, his deft lyrical touch draws the listener in and invites you to join the warm family circle he sings about.

Jym Mooney has been a mainstay of the Milwaukee folk music scene for over 30 years, both as a solo artist and as a member of the very popular group The Moxie Chicks. His delightful, well-crafted songs have earned him respect and admiration from his peers. His powerful anti-war song “I Have Come to Take My Boy Home” has been performed, recorded, and posted on websites and blogs internationally. On the other hand, his drily hilarious song “Murphy,” about a “three-legged, beer-swillin’ hound,” has aired multiple times on the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show (“Murphy” is included on Mooney Tunes and Maynard Melodies).
