Long time Canadian singer/songwriter Brad Monk comes out strong with his debut CD 'MONK' Just put it in your car, turn it up and drive. With a hard country edge and lyrics that pull you in, MONK has achieved a sound with a high powered, raw energy that comes from the heart. The band consists of an all-star line up of Toronto/Nashville superstars: Richard Bell - Piano, Bob Egan -Pedal steel, Brent Barkman - Organ, Tim Thorney - guitars, Colin Caddies - Drums and Producer Gerry Mosby on bass. 'We wanted to make a record like the old Bob Dylan days. Not a whole bunch of punch-ins... just get it right the first time and let the songs stand on their own. I think you can feel the energy in the room. It was great to just leave the technology behind for a while.' says Monk. I hope people enjoy it...
