“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.

Don’t miss a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence Brodie Moniker’s mu­sic live in Moose Jaw on Nov. 17 at The Park Ho­tel, free of charge.
