SELF RELEASED 2023
RELEASE DATE : SEPTEMBER 30, 2023
From Winona, Minnesota, Mike Munson offers us to participate in his personal ceremony of songs. Adept at the slide guitar with an unusual personality, in previous works he enhances each song with only his electric guitar, but in this album he plays the acoustic guitar for the first time backed by sinuous and hypnotic percussions. Manson is a storyteller, a modern songster, an undeclared bluesman, his wonderful compositions transport the listener to the places where inspiration and enthusiasm merge, places where the colors of nature it doesen't matter. His complete dedication in each song prevents us from doubting the truth, each chord and each sliding finger give all the power to vocal harmonies that are sometimes lazy and other times dazzling. Mike Munson is definitely an artist of this century, forceful in passion and faithful to his origin, located on the side of the road, sitting watching the urgencies and inaccuracies pass by, forgetting why he is a roots musician and betting on music as his only committed value.

by MIKE MUNSON & JAKE LLIKA
LAND AT LAST
Folk and blues duo, electric and acoustic guitar, fingerpickin' and slide. Inland environments that appear in each song, verses declined between dust and isolation. Stories told incognito by two travelers with no fixed destination, pain and passion caused in unison by the loneliness of the traveler on a journey without a stop to refuel. Where does the trip begin and where does it end? Mike Munson and Jake Ilika have recorded four albums to respond. Land At Last exchange desolation for illusion in a handful of songs that are inspired and exciting but also disturbing and painful, sometimes it hurts to listen to them. Nothing will happen if they continue to be forgotten, although they will continue to interpret them for whoever wants to listen to them.
