Art Munson started his career playing guitar in the 1960s alongside the legendary Dick Dale, and went on to do session work for some of the biggest stars in music (John Lennon, Billy Joel, and Sonny & Cher, to name a few). He’s since established himself as a formidable presence in the production-music world, tackling diverse genres, creating some of the most solid tracks around, and always throwing in a curveball or two.
