Welcome to Monkman Music
I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Currently I reside in Edmonton, Alberta and it is here that I have been fortunate enough to have performed with and learned from some of Edmontons' finest musicians which has enabled me to grow and develope as a musician. Through my studies and related experiances I have been fortunate enough to have assumed the roles of:
- Session musician
Throughout my musical journey I have been fortunate to have fronted or performed with various musical groups from jazz quartets to folk duos. I am also currently working on my first practice/study Book which I hope to have completed by early 2009. Along with these projects I am also playing in a cover/original rock band called "July" Which has opened for Bryan Adams, Harlequin, Trooper, Alannah Myles and Lee Aaron to name a few.
"Beyond his eclectic composing style, Monkman's clean, intelligent guitar lines are very appealing whether he's heading into improvised territory or going for tuneful hooks".
