ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
born in texas, muk started playing the guitar at age 12. by 14, he was already composing his own version of modern folk and americana music. during his college years, muk played with the eclectic, philadelphia-based band, renaissance bitch. they enjoyed a strong following during the mid 1990s, sharing the stage with such bands as phish and the dead milkmen.

since their disbanding, muk has returned to his origins, writing rich, literate, roots-oriented songs. drawing from folk, americana, and alt-country traditions, he is often mentioned in the same breath as gillian welch, ryan adams, jay farrar, and lucinda williams.

muk has performed at such notable venues as cb's gallery, pete's candy store, freddy's backroom, and the pontiac grille in philadelphia to a loyal following. in december 2002, he released a self-produced ep. the first track, better in the morning, spent weeks in the most-played list on the alt.country station on radio@netscape, reaching #1 in november, 2003.

every now and then someone comes along quietly, starts playing, and immediately compels you to listen. it doesn't happen often, but when it does you are reminded of the magic of discovering an exceptional artist.

muk is taking the stage. listen.

Muk's rare talent for beauty and simplicity is highlighted by smart lyrics and
When I first got my hands on Muk's four song CD I put the disc on repeat until I knew every word, every harmony, every harmonica melody and guitar lick. It was that good. This album demonstrates Muk's rare talent for beauty and simplicity in songs like Runaway and Faithful, which have clear lyrics and crip vocal arrangements making them exciting and fresh. Muk's allusions to New York places and moments over the backdrop of his alt-country instrumental and melodic patterns are a beacon, a validation to all us misplaced country-loving souls who call the Big Apple home. You can listen to Steve Earle and hear about Texas and Oklahoma and Emmy Lou loves to write about the South, but seldom do us urban coyboys and girls get to hear our city heralded in the music we love to listen to. Muk's album is gutsy in the tradition of Patty Griffin's Living With Ghosts. He puts himself out there, guitar and vocals against the world, no electics, no production that is detectable, simply heart and song and a splash of magic harmonica. Muk has a solid voice and a dynamite sensibility when it comes to arrangements for instrumentals and harmonies completed beautifully by Jessica Booth. My only criticism of Muk's CD? I wish it was three times as long.

!
With an acoustic rock style that truly rocks, Muk is a reminder that music can still be uncompromising. There’s a clarity and resonance to these soulful vocals which will knock you on your ass; there are lyrics here that’ll make you sit up and say damn; there are haunting harmonies so perfect you’ll forget to breathe.

Rising New Talent
Muk the Singer has put forth a good first effort. He is a talented singer/songwriter putting me in mind of a young Dylan or John Prine. My favorite cuts off this CD are Better in the Morning and Tomorrow Come Soon.

Simplicity and complexity
Muk's writing has definitely blossomed since his days with Renaissance Bitch. Combined with his basic unadulterated clean new sound, this artist has the potential to go far.
