Hamilton's Jesse O'Brien does a bang-up job tickling the ivories on Monarch, the latest powerful album from Toronto Bluesman Chris Antonik. They and the rest of the band have created a soulful, funky, rockin' Blues recording that'll get people hoppin'.
The music'll shake you up as Chris' voice hits you with its passion. This album is a moving experience both physically and emotionally. It stands up to any Blues release out there.
Chris and Jesse are joined by Chuck Keeping (Big Wreck) on drums, bassist Guenther Kapelle (Wild T and the Spirit) and Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar (vocals). They're responsible for the energetic and full sound on Monarch.
You can pick up this uplifting disc at Chris' shows, through his online shop or download it using iTunes. You'll be glad you did.
