It is a pleasure to welcome singer, songwriter, and Epic Records recording artist D. Muñoz! 

A Bayonne, New Jersey native, D. Muñoz, amassed a strong social media following since his debut in 2017. The Columbian and Dominican singer’s independent EP, Until Next Time, peaked at number seven on the iTunes R&B/Soul Chart. Some of D. Muñoz’s songs such as “Love Me” was streamed 1 million times on Spotify and was seen over 4.6 million times on YouTube. “Ten Toes Down” was also streamed 7.1 million Spotify times. 

On January 10, 2020, D. Muñoz dropped his Epic Records debut EP: MOMENTS. He is also expected to open for Ally Brooke at several stops of the Time to Shine Tour. He will perform in Baltimore, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. In this edition of A Conversation, D. Muñoz opened up about songwriting, revealed his favorite moments from recording MOMENTS, and teased his set on the Time to Shine Tour. 

Jacob Elyachar: When did you get interested in music? How did that passion evolve into the desire to pursue a career in the entertainment industry? 

D. Muñoz: I first started getting into the music industry around 15 years old… I was in a group chat with my friends, and I sent a voice memo of me singing, and they told me I was pretty good… They told me I should pursue it, and from then, I went on to post my first cover… It evolved into a passion because I slowly started to fall in love with the idea that I could say how I felt through music. 

Jacob Elyachar: Could you describe your songwriting style to my readers? 

D. Muñoz: My songwriting style is very vulnerable and straight forward. 

Jacob Elyachar: What are the challenges that you faced throughout your career? How did you overcome those obstacles? 

D. Muñoz: Trying to keep my patience… That was tough. I realized that you could not rush greatness.. that you cannot rush something you want to last forever.

Jacob Elyachar: Let’s talk about your debut EP: Moments. What were some of the highlights from your time in the recording studio? 

D. Muñoz: I remember going into the booth and freestyling my single “Typa luv”… I was going through something at the moment, so when I got in the booth, everything just came out… It was like magic. 

Jacob Elyachar: You will join Ally Brooke for six shows on her Time to Shine Tour. What can fans expect from your set? 

D. Muñoz: Fans can expect high energy and just a good time! I love to vibe out and connect with fans. 

Jacob Elyachar: If you had the chance to meet with aspiring singer-songwriters who want to elevate their careers, what advice would you share with them?
