Monkeysoop / Bio

Monkeysoop is a musical group of experimetal pioneers. Unfulfilled by the structures and rhythms available in much of today’s pop, rock and metal music, guitarist Jerry Connor writes without conforming to any guidelines other than the wilds of his warped imagination. Unique mixes of musical styles, time signatures, and extraordinary guitar melodies and riffs put you on an auditory and emotional roller coaster that is the band’s ‘experimetal’ music. “Monkeysoop . . . balances earnestness, speed and all-out technical ability with playfulness and soaring imagination,” says Jim Beal, Jr., from the San Antonio Express News.

With bandmates Erica Missey on drums and in 2014, Chuck Diesel on bass, Jerry Connor and Monkeysoop have been going strong since 2003. Monkeysoop released its seventh CD, DARNITALL, in November, 2014.

The band signed in 2012 with Tate Music Group and released its sixth CD, GREY MATTER, in October, 2013.

Previously, Monkeysoop was signed with Sonic Wave International, Inc., through which they have released five CDs since 2004; EXPERIMETAL II, EXPERIMETAL, NUNS' NIGHT OUT, COUNTERCLOCKWISE, and MONKEYSOOP. These CDs are available at major internet retailers.

The group is sponsored by Analysis-Plus, Inc., GuitarHeads Pickups, Sleek Guitars, Pic Stick, Curt Mangan, Fast Axe, Coffin Case, Star Access Entertainment, and Furman.

Monkeysoop has had the honor of guest appearances by drummer extraordinaire Terry Bozzio and guitar slinger Michael Angelo Batio on their 2012 release, EXPERIMETAL II.

Monkeysoop received Grammy consideration in 2005 for "Best Rock Performance.”

The band was honored as the "BEST NEW INTERNATIONAL BAND" for the "MYSPACE HALL OF FAME”, Class of 2010.

Monkeysoop’s music is featured in the television series "The Drive TV".

The band is honored to have toured with and opened for many national international musical acts.

The funds earned from Monkeysoop’s song “Kendall” go to aid the American Heart Association.
