Feature: The Ingredients of Another Night, A Distance From Here with Joe Mungovan

Thursday, January 25, 2018

Before Joe Mungovan embarks on his east-coast tour, he took some time out to share the ingredients of his most recent EP Another Night, A Distance From Here — including long drives, his trusty van, Cab Sav, the nighttime and his friend/mentor/producer Tim Carr.

Highways and Long Distance Driving
I spend a lot of time driving up and down highways. It gives me a lot of time to think about different ideas and concepts for songs. It can be dangerous sometimes spending too much time in your own head though haha!

Rodge is my van but he is also my friend. He listens to me when I talk to him and he gets me from state to state and to the studio and back. My mate Jim and I built a double bed in the back so that I can store all my belongings underneath and still have a lot of room to sleep. I love to lay in the back reading a book when its raining and listen to the droplets hit the roof.

Red wine
A very important ingredient for this EP (and life in general). I've spent numerous nights sipping on a delicious Cab Sav and writing/recording these tracks.

Late nights
Most of the songs are about the events that take place in the late hours of the night and early hours of the morning. Partying, carrying on and causing mischief with my friends. It is also a time when I feel most creative and productive.

Tim Carr
My producer and my teacher. A man with magical ways. He brings my songs to life and shares his knowledge and wisdom along the way.
