Buddy Mondlock has been kicking around the contemporary acoustic music scene since Guy Clark first heard him sing at the 1986 Kerrville Folk Festival. Clark mentored him and collaborated with him on several songs over the years. Mondlock's songs have been covered by Nanci Griffith, Janis Ian, David Wilcox and Garth Brooks. But he has only a handful of recordings to his name THE EDGE OF THE WORLD is Mondlock's fifth recording, and his first solo effort since completing POETIC JUSTICE in 1998. In 2002, he collaborated with Art Garfunkel and Maia Sharp on a recording called EVERYTHING WAITS TO BE NOTICED on the EMI/Manhattan label.
Mondlock has a beautiful tenor voice which draws us back to an earlier place and time, before the large shopping malls took over the landscape, and "the world was full of mystery/god and space and time." In his new CD, Mondlock beautifully evokes a sense of uncertainty and indecision balanced by a degree of optimism. There is no bitterness here -- just the looking ahead toward an unknown future. It has been said the melodies are simply beautiful, and coupled with Mondlock's lovely tenor and skilled guitar playing, you just don't want them to end.
Mondlock has co-written MUD with 2007 Grammy nominee Guy Clark, celebrating the natural world, about the Texas Gulf Coast's Refugio County.
