Hi, I'm Art Munson. Been around this planet many decades and planning for a few more. My latest project is www.artmunsonmusic.com. A place for licensing royalty free music.
My latest project is www.artmunsonmusic.com. I also developed and run www.musiclibraryreport.com. A directory of music libraries where composers can share their experiences working with those libraries.
Currently I am writing production music and producing songs with my wife, soul mate and best friend Robin. Our music has appeared on numerous TV shows including The Today Show (NBC), The Voice (NBC), Raising Hope (FOX), Oprah (ABC), Let's Make A Deal (CBS), ABC World News, Burn Notice (USA), Nate Berkus (NBC), Dance Wars (ABC), American Pickers (History Channel), Keeping Up With the Kardashians (E!) as well as shows on MTV, VH1, TLC, BRAVO, NATGEO, TELEMUNDO, Fox, DIY, Style and more.
As for my past: I've been lucky enough to have been involved in many facets of the music business, as a guitarist, recording engineer, song writer and record producer. I started out playing with Dick Dale and the Deltones, arguably the original California surf band. I later toured with the Righteous Brothers, Nino Tempo and April Stevens, David Cassidy, Nancy Sinatra and Paul Williams. I was also a signed writer with A & M for four years. Following that, I owned and operated my own recording studio.
On recordings I've worked with artists as varied as John Lennon, Barbra Streisand, Cher, Billy Joel, The Righteous Bros, Paul Williams, Kris Kristofferson, Vonda Shepard, Brenda Russell, David Sanborn, Bill Medley and many more. I've also been involved in numerous TV shows, jingles and films and have had numerous songs recorded by various artists such as Randy Crawford, Bill Medley, Linda Carter and Paul Williams.
It's been truly a blessed life and I am constantly reminded that it's more about the journey than the destination!
