Thanks for listening and… see you next month 🙂

HAPPY MAY!  To celebrate spring this episode is full of love that hopefully inspires you to greatness. SEA MONSTER RADIO is the all-local Seattle radio show with an emphasis on the soul, funk, and jazz music is hosted by owner ANDREW SEA MONSTER.  FEATURING contributions from ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME, THE THEORETICS, GRAVITY, THE TOGETHER COLLECTIVE, THE REZ TRIO, EVO, BLU SIRKUT, CRISTINA ORBE, CON BRIO, DUB CHAMPIONS, HAIKU-CHI, and more!

Episode #15 starts with a song by our friend SHAWN SMITH who recently left us.  It’s a song called BACK INTO ME off the album THE DIAMOND HAND which reached out to me amongst his many popular songs.  He will forever be with us in our loving memories.  #SHAWNSMITHFOREVER

CON BRIO is a Bay Area band that has been around for about a decade.  They came through on tour a few times many years ago with a female lead singer although they now have a male lead singer and new material to boot.  This is a song off of their album FROM THE HIP called BLACK HOLE BLUES

CRISTINA ORBE was one of the first stars that came through the door of the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE.  She would become the beacon through which our OPEN MIC night blossomed so long ago.  Many other talented artists came through the door because of their contact with CRISTINA.  I used to sing back up for her too!  her LOVE SONG off of the album SWAY is included in this episode.

THE TOGETHER COLLECTIVE sound good!  They craft original songs and they are catchy pop/soul tunes with a little country twang in there.  Led by guitarist, singer, songwriter JEREMY QUINN MACRAE, watch out for their new album!  Included in this episode is an as yet unreleased track DRONES.

THE DUB CHAMPIONS used to have a hold on WEDNESDAY nights at the RAINBOW ROOM next to the BLUE MOON TAVERN when the SEA MONSTER first opened.  They put out a demo with this awesome music on it that still kicks today.  check out their song SMOKE from 11-03-03!

These guys are all extremely talented and can rock any room anywhere individually or collectively.  BLU SIRKUT ( PAPA JOSH, DAVEE C, JOEY WALBAUM, and CD LITTLEFIELD) came out with a great set of songs on their EP that DJ’s would love.  I think they had to change the name to KLOZD SIRKUT because of legalities, but the funk is still their.  YEAR OF THE DOG is the song I’ve included off of their EP release.

and here’s a link to one of their videos!

I’ve also included in this episode one of my unreleased tracks KEEP IT TIGHT.  look for it to come out some time in 2020 after we move and have our 2nd child and things settle down 🙂

#MYMUSIC and as if that wasn’t enough of me, here’s a PRINCE cover that I did a while back with my band HAIKU-CHI.  I WONDER off the album HELLO KITTY 🙂

#PRINCEFOREVER

ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME brings the funky party to all of their shows.  They are led by the gigantic vocals of lead singer JOE SIMPSON.  check out their music here https://www.facebook.com/eldridgegravy

I included their song SMELLS LIKE DANGER off of the album US IS WHAT TIME IT IS

GRAVITY is awesome.  the music is many years old and still that album can go on and you are not tired of it.  The masterful keys of TIM KENNEDY with the drums of CLAUDIO ROCHAT FELIX, and the bass of IAN SHERIDAN make for a great blend of funky brotherhood.  I’ve included their song HIGH SPEED AUTO CHASE off of their album GRIMY.  I heard they are recording a new album this year!!

https://www.reverbnation.com/realgravitymusic

EVO was my friend who played it on the drums with the NEPOTISTAS on WEDNESDAYS when the SEA MONSTER LOUGE first opened.  He put out a solo record of electronic drum beats that he produced, i dug it.  Here’s a cut called HELL from that album LIKE A DROP.  Cheers to you wherever you are EVO!

THE THEORETICS are hard to pin down.  They have their roots in dark groove electronic music, but when they add vocals the MC’s  Mark Hoy and Chimaroke Abuachi the music takes off in wonderful different directions.  check out their track GO off the album PLENTY OF ANYTHING.

https://www.facebook.com/pg/Theoreticsmusic/about/?ref=page_internal

The guitar music of The Rez Trio is woven from the threads of contemporary flamenco, Hungarian czardas, and French Gypsy swing. Istvan Rez, Nat Hulskamp and Guil Guimaraes bring disparate histories into their collaboration. Their compositions combine flamenco rhythms and techniques with the melodic influence of Jazz Gitan (created by the legendary Django Reinhardt) and the underlying ambiance of Hungarian czardas.

Check out their song SWING 86 off their album C’SORO SWING.

Portland, Oregon rock/funk guitar man SCOTT PEMBERTON was able to establish himself in Seattle by having a monthly at the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE somewhere around 2013… man does time fly! this is his song EAST BAR LINE from the album SUGAR MAMA.

www.scottpemberton.com

 

RYAN SHEA SMITH is a great songwriter who has spent some years in the NW performing and writing with/for THE VOICE contestant MYCLE WASTMAN. I’m not sure if he still resides here, but check out his album STAY AWHILE which features As Long As I’m with You.

www.ryansheasmith.com

REPTET was a hot name in the Seattle jazz scene for a minute in the late 2000’s. The band has featured many of Seattle’s jazz stars, including Samantha Boschnack, John Ewing, Isaac Mills, Evan Flory Barnes, Nelson Bell, and more.. check out their songs at

https://reptet.bandcamp.com

One of Seattle’s finest original funk/dance/electronic performers RICHIE ALDENTE aka TIM KENNEDY has a song F.T.L. on this show. The man is very talented and able to incorporate many genres effortlessly. He has several albums that you can check out at

https://timkennedy.bandcamp.com

THE PHAT PHUNK PHAMILY is one of the NW gems of undiscovered talent. The whole family is performing live on all the instruments, and they are GREAT! I have had them at the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE many times and I wish they had more music for you to listen to! This is one part of the family, VON O.P. who released an EP with this song YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT LIKE I DO around 2012..

One of Seattle’s brightest stars on the upright bass, EVAN FLORY BARNES has been part of several great bands in his short time on the jazz scene. He continues to push the boundaries of music with original compositions. He will be performing new original music at the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE on Wednesday March 13th. This is one of his bands, THREAT OF BEAUTY with a song called IN ANTICIPATION, which is a great showcase of his talents.

It’s been a minute since THREAT OF BEAUTY has been on the scene and I’m not about to give out a myspace address (sorry), so check out Evan with his new band here

http://www.industrialrevelation.com/tag/evan-flory-barnes/

LITTLE BIRD. This song made me cry. Many do, but this one is a good one. It’s by NOAH BYRD, a local songwriting/singing star who is one to watch. He has lots of good songs you can pick from and that you will enjoy listening to him perform live with his band THE FLOCK.

check out NOAH here

www.noahbyrd.bandcamp.com

 

SAMIA’S SAMBA is a song off of the album THE BOOK OF CHANGES by bassist, composer, and educator STEVE KIM. One of the jazz giants that you may not have heard of, check him out and more music at

http://kimpossibilities.net

THE UNMANIFESTED… by the COSMOPOLITES. Can I tell you that I love the COSMOPOLITES! they are amazing to behold. only two musicians on the stage performing, and no extra tracks being triggered. JOHN KARWOSKI on drums and TRAVIS FISHER playing bass with his left hand, chords and melodies with his right hand and singing like an angel. the songs are GREAT! Last I heard Travis was in Asia, maybe someone snatched him up and he has make a wonderful musical empire for himself there.. this song was recorded live at the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE. check out more music by THE COSMOPOLITES here

www.cosmopolites.bandcamp.com

LOOKING AT YOU by JOHNNY and the MOLES.. this band has been around for a minute and I feel like I’m only now discovering how good they are. JOHN EWING has a great gravelly funk voice and drives the bus on the drums. The record JOHNNY and the MOLES has many colors and all of them shine nicely. I would describe them as a bluesy/rock New Orleans funk band, but their song LOOKING AT YOU sounds like the Beatles got back together.. check them out at

www.johnnyandthemoles.com

 

I AM.. by THE LIQUE. okay.. THE LIQUE are from LAS VEGAS and I think their lead singer RASAR AMANI has spent some time in Sacramento too. but they have performed at the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE a couple times and rocked the house each time, PLUS their bad ass keyboard player/singer has spent time in Seattle. It seems like they are on their way to big things as the last I heard THE LIQUE had a residency as the house band at a fancy club in VEGAS that hosts performers such as WYCLEF JEAN! (that is the pic I saw on Facebook)

check out THE LIQUE here

SWINGING ON A MOONBEAM by THE BARRETT MARTIN GROUP

these guys just wrapped up 2 gigs at the SEA MONSTER LOUNGE performing most of their new album TRANSCENDENCE as well as cuts from their other albums. BARRETT has travelled the world performing many different genres of music from ROCK to JAZZ and his this ensemble allows him to mix all of those elements.

check out the BARRETT MARTIN GROUP at

www.barrettmartin.com

THE VAULT by the PSYCHOKINETICS.. these guys have some HOT FIRE! It’s unbelievable to me that they didn’t explode all over the music world. I can play most of the tracks off of their album sensory descent and people freak out. I freak out. this is from 2002 people!

check out the PSYCHOKINETICS here
