Michal Menert is very pleased to announce that his new single “All You Get” can now be heard everywhere. “’All You Get’ is an affirmation to take life (with a grain of salt) and make it yours” says Menert. “A mantra for a disillusioned world waiting for someone else to save it, a comforting reminder that much of what we prioritize isn't as valuable as love & purpose.”
Get it all right here:
Menert draws breath from the world that surrounds him, transmuting daily inspiration into music that is singularly his own. A youth steeped in a broad swath of both Eastern and Western musical traditions gives Menert a deep palate from which to draw; his passion for original analog sounds coupled with a vast knowledge of music history has given him a unique ability to pull from the global creative canon with ease. A multi-instrumentalist, he incorporates live guitar and keys into his final production for a full sound and rich feel.
Michal Menert’s debut solo album Dreaming of a Bigger Life was released in 2010, followed by 2012’s mega-LP Even If It Isn’t Right. In winter of 2015 Menert released the highly anticipated Space Jazz, followed by fall 2015’s debut release by his band Michal Menert & the Pretty Fantastics, 1.
In the live realm, Menert supplied sound design for Dead & Co tours in 2016 and 2017. Additionally, he supplied sound design on Mickey Hart’s Planet Drum rerelease in Fall 2016. Building on that relationship, Menert in both a featured performer and co-producer on Hart’s latest studio record, RAMU (released fall 2017.)
Menert’s reputation as a live performer continues to grow, as he brings his music to fans nationwide via both his septet, Michal Menert & The Pretty Fantastics, and his 22-piece all-star ensemble the Michal Menert Big Band. His collaborations have led to the formation of myriad ongoing side projects including Manic Menert (with Manic Focus), Half Color (with Paul Basic) & Club Scouts (with Mux Mool). Over the years Menert has shared the stage with musical luminaries including STS9, Bassnectar, Umphrey’s McGee, and more, and played legendary venues such as the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, The Gorge in Washington and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
