Neil Munro 42


Hillcrest South Africa   Feb 2017

Artist Bio

Influences:   Betty Lou Mills, Shanana, The Carpenters, Don Francisco, Cliff Richard, Whitecross,Petra, Jars of Clay, Casting Crowns

A Child of The Kwazulu Natal Midlands, I started my music in Pietermarizburg with a band named Anesthesia. (PMB Is also known as the sleepy hollow) Bass was my primary Instrument but when I discovered song writing at the age of 14 I quickly switched to Guitar. I recorded an album in 1996 with Candleman titled Thru these eyes. I was on Bass and backing vocals. I front lined in a Cover Band Undercover for 2 years but since moving to Durban have had to leave it behind. So now I'm being Inspired & pushed by Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch to bring my own music out from Hiding. I have collaborated musically with Marthie and Gordon Franks and Roberto Hemerro who have breathed life into my simple songs. I love children (I have 4 boys) and plan to release an album of Dedication and inspiring songs Titled ALL GOD MADE U2B focusing on uniqueness and Beauty of each persons expression of Life! I call my songs prayer letters as many are written for specific people. I also write nonsense songs again about people & experiences. Be blessed ! Thanks for listening

    Thank you Neil for your support.

  • @mishykatz  Mar 1

    Wow lookit all your songs!! I got me some listenin to do...thank you so much for all your watching, much appreciated and noted and welcomed!

  • @srcoops Mar 1

    Thanks for reading Golden Age and Homeless. I didn't think anyone would notice this late in the month. I , too, have four children. All were or are in music. One music major. Two play in a band that has some stuff on Pandora. (Treading Bleu) You have been very productive and have obviously had a good time with FAWM.

  • @mdavisto  Mar 1

    42 songs whaaaaaaat? You're a machine. How? Are you unemployed?

  • @mdavisto  Mar 1

    Thanks buddy. I'm actually working on a music video for it because, bizarrely, it's gaining some traction in Latvia.

  • @aprilm  Feb 28

    If you are on FB, look me up! I am on the FAWM page there and I love to connect outside of FAWM. I usually do 50/90 as well! I welcome the ongoing support and friendship as well! πŸ˜€

  • @marthie Feb 27

    Dis you see the kettle song is done? I forgot to add the nature camping soundsπŸ€”πŸ¦‹

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 26

    Thank you Neil, I've just emailed you.

  • @matthew62  Feb 26

    Thanks for you kind comments on "when You Touch My Hand". Truly appreciated.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 25

    Thank you so much for your beautiful collaboration. I'd love to have the file and post it on bandcamp if you are happy with the idea.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • @airbagtester  Feb 25

    Hey! I finished a demo of your song "She's A Strange One." Hope it's okay! I'm not a terrific singer but I tried to sing how I heard it in my head 😁 Thanks!

  • @ahasuerus Feb 24

    Sorry I saw your message late. You wanted to collab?

  • @aprilm  Feb 22

    Thanks for your comment On My Shadow!

  • @joefahey  Feb 22

    Thanks Neil! Nope, haven't made it back yet.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 22

    Hi Neil, thank you for listening, commenting and offering to collaborate on Every Day Is Someone's Birthday. I'll be delighted to collaborate with you. Please feel free to contact me (pm via this site or bandcamp). Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • @airbagtester  Feb 21

    Hi Neil! Thanks for commenting on my song! Sure, I'd love to collaborate... I don't normally sing, but I just read your song "She's A Strange One" and it did kind of jump out at me as a fun sounding song I might be able to sing to... do you already have plans for that one or can I give it a try?

    I've got some other collaborations in the works too, but should have a bunch of time Thurs. Fri. and this weekend hopefully. Let me know! 😁

  • @ianuarius  Feb 21

    Hey, thanks for the comment and the offer. I was thinking of keeping it instrumental. πŸ˜€

  • @srcoops Feb 21

    Thank you. For your willingness to work on Song in my Brain I look forward to hearing it.

  • @marthie Feb 21

    Greatness -

  • @srcoops Feb 20

    You looked at Song in my Head. Want to take a shot at it?

  • @godsmonkey Feb 20

    Can you send me the tracks you have for technoference?, or direct me to a link to download them?


  • @misterd Feb 20

    Thanks for listening & positive comment on my song 'Living silence ' . I appreciate it . Thanks πŸ‘

  • @godsmonkey Feb 19

    Id be happy to see what I can come up with. Most of my stick playing is either the bass side, with melody accompaniment, so playing on the high side will be an interesting challenge.

  • @aprilm  Feb 19

    Thanks for your comments on When I Need You Most. Weird how songs just pop into your head sometimes - this one was like that.

  • @phlecksy  Feb 18

    Thanks for your comment on 'Midlife crisis coffee break', appreciate it!

  • @nateger Feb 18

    Bro, I added all of the strings to my bass and it still couldn't go low enough! Alas...

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 17

    Ha! YES. There was a wee bit of the Psalty joy in that song. πŸ˜€
    I grew up with much of that music. πŸ˜€

  • @jaegerin  Feb 17

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment! It made me tear up (in a good way).

  • @dianaviney Feb 17

    Thanks for your nice comment on whiskey love. Happy fawming.

  • @rbmarty000  Feb 16

    I've finished the scratch recording.. I noticed that you are probably not a fan of Christopher Hitchens but perhaps one who does believe that protesting to protect the rights of our future generations is worthwhile.
    Thanks for listening and your positive comments. Cheers

  • @dani312 Feb 16

    Thanks for taking the time to listen to and comment on my song!

  • @sync  Feb 15

    I really like the idea of songs being personal and for specific people. That's so counter from the "get as many likes as possible with no regard for the person behind the like" mentality today. It's a beautiful idea that I will thinking about for a while. Thank you.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 15

    Yup. Jesus does meet our need -- the "living bread" is what is most important of all! πŸ˜€ Thanks for listening to Jesus Feeds Us.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 13

    Thank you for your comment on my most experimental song - will need to work on the music/vocals. Loved your bio - so admirable! Will take a listen to your songs.

  • @tunecat  Feb 13

    Thanks for responding and for the helpful comments you left. If you ar in Durban now, I'll share a few names with you... maybe get some nice connections.. Let me know if you follow up the GB/TJ thing.. !

  • @cphaurckker Feb 13

    hey, thanks for checking out my latest! Really impressed with your productivity - 26 on day 13? How prolific - looking forward to checking yours out!

  • @mkd  Feb 13

    Thanks for listening to Homework Sucks! Wow, you’ve done so many tracks already!!

  • @rbmarty000  Feb 12

    Gee you're way over 14.. congrats.

    Thanks for the commentary comments. I intend on putting some melody to it when I get back to the studio.

    Let me know if you want a collab. Cheers.

  • @francessmith Feb 12

    Thanks for listening, and commenting on my songs.

  • @jaegerin  Feb 12

    Thanks for your kind words on "Tell Me"!

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 9

    Thank you for the comment on "Help Yourself", glad you liked it!

  • @wacha  Feb 8

    Thank you for taking the time to listen to "Start Again" it's nice to see this song connecting with so many people.

  • @tan482  Feb 8

    Wow 4 kids - that's a whole lot of love right there! You are brave! I bet they provide much inspiration!

  • @aprilm  Feb 7

    Thanks for checking out Spies and Lies!

  • @jjbiener Feb 7

    Thank you for your comments on the Rubber Duck Song. A collab would be fine, but that one is already done. I am just working on the demo. If you would like to do a collaboration on another song, that would be great. Also feel free to cover Rubber Duck once I have a demo up.

  • @wacha  Feb 7

    Thank you for your kind words on "Adrfit". I posted a about half a dozen songs last year before I had time to sit and record the demos and found people were less likely to comment on the finished product so now I am slow to get the songs up but wait until I can get the demo recorded to post it.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 7

    Thank you. We'll muddle through. I'm really disappointed that my FAWM has fallen apart.

  • @tan482  Feb 7

    Oh also just saw your message about the Break Glass song. Thanks for the encouragement. Not too shattered - the first year has been tough but I can feel it getting easier already!

  • @tan482  Feb 7

    Thanks for stopping by and your lovely words πŸ˜€

  • @mom23gals  Feb 7

    Thanks for commenting on my song! Four boys... lucky you! I have 3 girls -- "mom to three gals", LOL! You are so productive, 19 songs already, I'm just hoping to get a few more.

  • @marthie Feb 6

    I gave it a go my colonial friend...

  • @godsmonkey Feb 6

    In case you want to take a stab at it.

  • @godsmonkey Feb 6

    Vocals.. not decimals. Lol

  • @godsmonkey Feb 6

    I thought I was on a roll, till I saw how many songs you posted. Well done!

    And if be honored if you wanted to add decimals to sample and hold me. I'll make sure it's down loadable

  • @aprilm  Feb 6

    Unfortunately the link doesn't play any of her music 😞

  • @misterd Feb 5

    Thanks for listening and the kind words on my song ' same way the river flows ' . I appreciate it !

  • @igg  Feb 5

    Thanks for your comment on "I'll Be Your Cup Of Coffee"

  • @eli666 Feb 4

    Thanks Neil! I am honored that I have at least one fan πŸ˜€

  • @cindyrella  Feb 4

    Thanks for your nice comments! This is one about camping-and I have just a different lyric too.

  • @cluebird66 Feb 4

    Thanks @aneil for your sweet words on β€œMy Darling Birdies”. I share your sentiments about the shelter of each other.πŸ’•

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2

    Haha, yes, I actually like happier songs, but it's funny that my first two songs on here are about love gone wrong. I so agree with what you said, though. It's so good to love through all the dirty messes life presents to us.

  • @aprilm  Feb 2

    Thanks for checking out Stay the Night. I would love if you could share a link to Janine Bartlett's music. I did a quick search and came up empty handed. Always love to explore new artists I am not aware of.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2

    Thank you for stopping by and listening and commenting on Nobodys child. Really appreciated.
