Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Road TripC.W. Mundy is an American Impressionist Society Member and a member of Oil Painters of America Master. He also plays banjo and bluegrass music. A man of many talents, he has just completed Road Trip - Crossing Borders with the help of many artists known to acoustic and bluegrass music. A CD release party and art showing is scheduled for August 9th at the Richland Fine Arts Center located at 4009 Hillsboro Pike, suite 203 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served beginning at 5pm at Richland Fine Art Gallery. A raffle on behalf of the Musicians Against Childhood Cancer, an organization benefiting St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, will take place, where guests may win CD's, t-shirts, and the grand prize: a framed C.W. Mundy original 9x12 oil painting valued at $4500.

Several of the musicians heard on the recording will join C.W. at 6:30pm for a special live performance, including Scott Vestal, Alice Vestal, Randy Kohrs, Daren Shumaker, Eamon McLoughlin, Todd Parks, and Jeff Autry.

Four songs are currently available to radio via Airplay Direct. "Road to Damascus", the lead-off track on Road Trip and first single available, is a progressive bluegrass instrumental that, from the first notes of the intro, warns the listener to buckle up as this will be one exciting ride. The other instrumental, "Not Gonna Settle For Less" shows Mundy’s trips to France did more than inspire his painting as this swing tune clearly has some Grappelli and Reinhardt influence in the mix. "I Cried Love", reminiscent of an Alison Krauss recording, is a tribute to both Mundy’s faith and marriage, featuring the velvety vocals of Alice Vestal. "Mid-day in Manaus", also with Alice Vestal on vocals, is an unexpected detour into the Brazilian city’s market, with a techno beat and local culture-laden lyrics.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
