We Are the Monks
Trent and Shellie Monk are The Monks, and this new acoustic-folk album is filled with a creative landscape of sounds featuring raw vocals, guitars, mandolins, harmonica, and of course the lap steel. The star is Trent’s familiar voice, recognizable from his days with duo Monk & Neagle, and his recent solo hit “Beautiful You.”
After his days with Monk & Neagle, and with his new wife, Trent and Shellie embarked on this journey of full-time music, encapsulated in the standout track, “Here We Go.” With top-notch producers like Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, Bebo Norman) and Ed Cash (Chris Tomin, Kari Jobe) at the helm, this duo’s high-quality release is sure to resonate with fans across the country and be the launch of a long career.
Sounds like: Civil Wars meets NEEDTOBREATHE meets All Sons & Daughters with the Monk’s own unique and catchy vibe.
