Munday Martin has released “Fly” his fifth single from his new EP that is coming out on October 21.
Munday Martin was recently promoted as the best up and coming artist in Nashville Tennessee by Nashville‘s biggest rock station recently, and without question is certainly making waves in the Christian and secular music industry with his retro rock vibe reminiscent of the 80s and 90s.
Fly is a song I wrote about breaking and defying statistical explanations that the enemy puts on us. One thing that I have learned following Christ is even the sky is not the limit. We can truly move mountains with our faith. He wants us to dream far bigger than we allow ourselves to. I believe when it comes to following Christ’s words there is no try, there is only do. I know it sounds a little bit like Yoda! And no it’s not a sci-fi song like “The Fix Is In.” Fly is my beloved tribute to ska-punk. People who hear it will immediately be reminded of the likes of the “Supertones” and “Madness.”
What many people probably don’t know about me is I got saved after being touched by the Holy Spirit at a “Supertones” moshPit at the Cornerstone music festival in 1996. God used Christian ska punk to help open my eyes that he loved me in my punk days as an addict. Nobody who has been to Cornerstone would ever forget that experience put on by the Jesus People in Illinois. Munday would like to dedicate this song to the “Supertones” as a way to say thank you for laying your life down for the gospel and reaching me with music for Christ.
Producer John Mark Painter (Fleming and John, DC Talk, Grits, Steve Taylor and the Perfect Foil) on this song has outdone himself. I played and recorded the song on acoustic guitar and at first it sounded like a Buddy Holly song, but it became Buddy Holly meets Madness. I have already received feedback from fans that it’s one of my best releases! The melody will stick in your head forever!
