MONOPHONICS ANNOUNCE NEW RELEASE
Monophonics are back with a six-song EP that fuses the complimentary and explosive soul, rock and funk influences, proving themselves to be the rightful inheritors of the Bay Area’s impressive psychedelic soul sound. Mirrors is comprised entirely of cover tunes, except that I doubt you’ve ever heard of half the deeply funky and soulful originals that inspired these soulful, tastefully produced, and timeless Monophonics treatments. “We wanted to do a couple songs that were more familiar to people and then shine some light on groups we’re big into,” lead singer, keyboardist and co-producer Kelly Finnigan explains. It takes a lot of guts to cover your favorite songs, your van jams, that song you play as a shot of inspiration to break-up a marathon studio session. “Not only are these great songs, but these are artists that we listen to and are influenced by.”

Doe Paoro Shares Bold New Song “Guilty”
“Guilty” was produced by renowned producer Jimmy Hogarth, who has worked with Amy Winehouse, James Blunt, James Bay and others, and can be listened to HERE.
“‘Guilty’ is about the internalized blame, self-hatred, and guilt that victims often must contend with (sometimes, for years) following a perplexing, undermining, shameful encounter involving an abuse of power,” Paoro says. “It happens in Hollywood, and it happens in indie music. This song is my story.”
Nearly two decades into his songwriting career, Rod Picott hits a prolific peak with Out Past the Wires (available March 30), a double album that serves as the inspiration for an accompanying book of short stories.
Out Past the Wires arrives less than three years after Fortune, Picott’s previous collection of American roots music. During that time, he’s become a published poet, written a screenplay, two books of short fiction and the first draft of a novel. He puts all these those skillsets to work with Out Past the Wires, whose 22 songs mix poetry and prose in equal doses. The result is the strongest album of his career, filled with electrified moments that channel Bruce Springsteen’s anthemic stomp, lyrics worthy of Leonard Cohen’s work, and quietly heartbreaking moments grounded in Picott’s acoustic guitar and road-worn voice.
