Biography

Munck//Johnson is a Danish duo, consisting of singer Camilla Munck and musician Moogie Johnson.

They first met up in 1999 in the Danish Alt-Country act, Wynona, sweeping both the press and audience off their feet. Five years of playing and touring later they decided to explore what have come to be Munck//Johnson.

Munck//Johnson spent most of 2004 founding their own label, Laura Lee Records, writing and recording their debut. This album, 'Unlike You', was released in autumn, receiving spectacular reviews followed up by intimate concerts.

2005 led to the signing of Munck//Johnson to PonyRec, the re-release of the debut and touring outside of Denmark.

Later that summer Munck//Johnson started recording the second album. 'Count Your Blessings' was released on Danish ground in February 2006. Once again the minimalistic universe of Munck//Johnson conquered the hearts of all listeners.

Lyrics

Eyes Wide Open

Written By: Camilla Munck

this is where I sleep
this is where I preach
I reconcile my every sins and deeds
take these bones, break the bonds of fire
I'm sorry but I don't wanna know

river wide and river deep
lack of faith and desire sweet
I sharpen my knife, I cross my heart
I'm sorry but I don't wanna know

loose a life with eyes wide open

Last Wish

Written By: Camilla Munck

Bring me water
Bring me relief
Spare me your name
Soothe me, soothe me

DonÕt you cry / I donÕt cry
No need to
IÕm long gone
We both know
Time is up
DonÕt leave now
I ask of you
To be kind

To bring meÉ

Flesh And Bone

Written By: Camilla Munck

My heart on my sleeve
This is what I did believe
I wanna die with my eyes open
Facing the sky
May the moon turn the tide
I wanna die with my eyes open

Go straight through flesh and bone

See how you shine
Please, remember this in time
I wanna die with my eyes open
No reason I hide
Nor secrets or lies
I wanna die with my eyes open

Go straight through flesh and bone

Be my friend or my foe
Do leave me alone
I wanna die with my eyes open
This world I canÕt take
Forsake me for this hate
I wanna die with my eyes open

Go straight through flesh and bone

Indifference is to blame
Men in power with no shame
I wanna die with my eyes open
Greed will survive
I no longer will abide
I wanna die with my eyes open

Go straight through flesh and bone

My heart on my sleeve
This is what I do believe

Go straight through flesh and bone

Be Kind

Written By: Camilla Munck

Your head has turned
And soon youÕll long to go
You trust no-one
And this is all that shows

I am here
I am here
Be kind
