"Raised amid the Bay Area's rich musical culture, Monophonics has proudly carried on the tradition of music native to their hometown, which flourished during the birth of Funk music and Psychedelic Soul in the late 60s and 70s.
Monophonics was formed in 2005, and since then have created a signature psychedelic soul sound, impressing audiences with their energetic live show. Originally an instrumental ensemble, the last two years have shown the band expanding their instrumental sound into vocals for the first time.
The bonus was having our talented friend and über musical mind Shawn Lee on mallet percussion and tambourine.” 2015 is shaping up to be a huge year for Monophonics, with a heavy worldwide tour in the works as well as their newest record, recorded at Transistor Sound in San Rafael, CA. The album, titled Sound of Sinning, is out 14 April 2015."
