Matt Muldoon is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and "Hoolymungo" is
his first solo project.
Matt grew up in California listening to AM Radio in the late 60's and early 70's and
watching television shows like Hee-Haw, Andy Griffith, Sonny and Cher, to name a
few. His rich mixture of musical influences include "The Estrada Brothers," a Latin
Soul band in which his father was the Conga player for several years, to Honky-tonk
music blaring out of the Jukebox at the "Cabin Bar," a little Cafe Bar where he and
his friends would hang out as kids shooting pool and listening to Commander Cody
and Hank Williams Sr. Matt played lead guitar in a California-based Garage Power
Pop quartet called "Durango 95" in the mid 80´s. They recorded two records with
Earle Mankey (A True Legend) producing. The first EP, "Dreams and Trains," was
released on Line Records in Germany in 1987 and on Stonegarden Records in the
States the same year.
Matt first picked up a Lap Steel while playing with Durango 95. After moving to
Germany, he built a Lap Steel which he played at his first paying gig and still has
it! He started playing in a country band and soon after a pedal steel guitar found its
way to him, a fiddle followed, and so on... All in all Matt now plays Pedal Steel,
Lap Steel, Dobro, Guitars, Mandolin, Ukulele, Fiddle and more on "Hoolymungo".
He has always written music and started writing lyrics while playing with Durango
95, together with Frank Barajas, Russ Davis (Anguiano), and Chuck Herrera. He has
always had a desire to play as many instruments as possible and credits that desire
from seeing Bob Swandt play Guitar, Fiddle, Banjo and Mandolin at some of his
Gigs in Owens Valley, California when Matt was a child. What a sound!
So From Jazz to Bluegrass, from Garage Power Pop to Rock and Roll -- it´s all
"Hoolymungo" Highlights:
This recording features some very nice percussion work from Matts' brother Mike
who has toured and recorded with IZ Israel Kamakawiwo'ole for several years and
has many top notch credits to his name. Matt is featured on all of the stringed
instruments (except track 4, that´s Regina Kraus on Violin). Sandra Spiegel has
done some wonderful background vocals too. Sandra and Matt have been
performing together in a rowdy little country band called Canyon in Bavarian Spessart for over 20 years now.
