Munsick announces debut disc
Friday, January 15, 2021
– Ian Munsick will release his major label debut, "Coyote Cry" on Feb. 26 on Warner.
Co-produced by Munsick, Coyote Cry features 10 tracks including "Long Haul" and "Me Against The Mountain." The Wyoming native also released a new track, "Humble," today.
"Coyote Cry is a soundtrack for the modern western lifestyle," Munsick said. "A firm handshake between cowboy and hippy, traditional and contemporary and everything in between. It's the life I've lived so far and the lessons I've learned along the way. No matter who you are, I think you'll find a piece of yourself in there and maybe even lose yourself to the howling in the hills."
Under the tutelage of their fiddle-playing father, Munsick and his two older brothers grew up playing everything from bluegrass to The Beatles. Munsick, 27, has spent the five years honing his craft in Nashville, blending his Rocky Mountain sound with progressive elements and new-school production. He released an EP in 2017.
"Cowboys have always been the people I've looked up to most and aspired to be like," he said. "I don't mean the cattle rustling, heart-thieving, Hollywood kind. I mean the first one to work, give the shirt off his back, Chris Ledoux kind. The kind you want as your neighbor. The kind I think of when I hear the word cowboy. Humble. Thanks for running with The Heard."
The Heard is the name of his fan club.
