Ottawa’s Claude Munson writes uninhibited impressionist-folk.
Whether drenched in crystalline synths or stripped bare, Munson’s songs tackle modern life and love with radical intimacy. His soaring, gritty tenor paints vivid pictures of hard promises and ecstatic joys: atmospheric narratives that unfold, Rorschach-like.
In 2018, Munson will release “The Silence Came After”, his second and most fully realized album to date. Equal parts lush and spare, it marries the naked soul of 70’s-era Neil Young, with Talk Talk’s spacious expressionism, and Krautrock’s motoric rhythms.
