“I like to express a broad range of things and I don’t like worrying about whether or not it fits on a specific place on the shelf. I just wanted to rip the band-aid off and move forward with just, ‘hey, this is who I am, I like all this different stuff,’” he said. “I want to keep exploring different directions musically and expressively and just do that with music instead of thinking too much about how it’s going to be received.”
At Moniker’s shows, audiences can expect bluesy, funky, and rugged guitar solos, rhythmic upbeat bass and drums, and punchy lyrics expressing how there’s nowhere left to “ghost” for him but forward. You can hear subtle entwined inspirations of Frank Zappa’s quirk, Jack White’s heavy guitar riffs, Pink Floyd’s psychedelic fluid instrumentals and looping, and even a bit of The Beatles’ influence in the song, “Punching Bag.” Most importantly, audiences can expect honest words from the heart, and to experience the authentic sound of a man breaking free from tradition, and making it all come together symphonically on his own.
