Monsterboy

Monsterboy

Monsterboy is a breakout music project based out of Little Rock, Arkansas that was jump-started by an interview by MTV.com when discovered at Bonnaroo. A husband and wife team, the couple has shared their love of music with audiences large and small over the last few years. Featured on Spotify playlists, iHeartRadio, and Pandora, the music of Monsterboy is gaining more fans worldwide daily while building a reputation locally and regionally for offering uniquely inspiring and captivating entertainment for all ages.

The duo's unplugged style set is an acoustic coffeehouse gig meets Postmodern Jukebox. The pairing of the acoustic guitar and vocals with the handsome tone of a baritone saxophone, the couple brings a refreshing take on a familiar sound with their originals. By playing this gentle giant of the saxophone world much like a cello, this takes their collection of top 40s pop/classic covers in intriguing new directions.

Monsterboy's electric sets highlight the multi-instrumental skills of both artists along with including synced video programming inspired by music festivals. Traditional and tribal instrumentation blend with EDM and pop elements to take audiences on a journey of musical exploration. Taking inspiration from such greats as Prince and Beck, these songs are carefully crafted in their home studio one track at a time.

As founding members of the international non-profit music community - Musician Cell Groups, Monsterboy is committed to helping their local music community grow. They are driven to inspire and educate other artists by offering keynote, workshops, and masterclasses such as: Musician Middle Class - careers in music that exist between the starving artists and the top 40 hits; Show Up Ready - professionalism in the local scene; Modern Methods for Modern Times - innovative ways for today's artists to self-develop from home recordings to build a brand.
