DJ Interviews: Spunky Munkey

 How'd you get started in music? 

Always had an ear for sound and many songs meant things to me at various points in life. I did not play an instrument till my early 20's.  Got into playing guitar seriously then though, always kept a guitar close by, took lessons, practiced 2hrs every day. Played a lot of cover tunes, then later on got into writing songs.

Who are your inspirations or influences?

For musicians, my 3 influences were Page, Blackmore and Hendrix. For inspiration, if a song idea is coming to me I will usually come up with a few chords on a guitar shortly after picking it. Other times a current issue in society might arouse my attention or I may develop an opinion on something which could become a song title. Obviously, cliche words are sometimes good song titles.  Another inspiration is the creation of a new song itself, all the work and creativity that goes into that. I sometimes look back at some songs written and say for example that's an interesting chord sequence or rhythm etc.  Other times I think, how did I pull that off, which can inspire something new.

What advice would offer aspiring performers?

Develop the skills as a player, singer, songwriter etc, practice consistently. When you are ready and you know that you have something together, test it out to make sure that others think you are ready. Perform live as much as possible, find a good manager and have a vision of who you are and where you want to go. Find people who think the way you do.

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?

The competition is with yourself, the songs you write, the way you play guitar and the guitar solos you make. Musicians are family so there should be room for everyone's uniqueness and creativity.

Any new gigs or albums in the future?

As Spunky Munkey a large number of songs have been created. The best received CD was "The Clones" one.
Currently new songs are released as singles and there is usually a new song always in the works or a song idea. The latest release is The Explorer.

Lo-Fi on this list denotes the master is lost and the song was not recorded again. There are probably more legacy songs to add, once they are located, if that be the case.
