ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
San Francisco rock quintet New Monsoon is the collaborative vehicle for the vocal and instrumental prowess of founding members Bo Carper (acoustic guitar and banjo), Jeff Miller (electric guitar) and Phil Ferlino (keys). Now well into its second decade of national touring, the band also features the muscular rhythm section of Marshall Harrell (electric bass) and Michael Pinkham (drums).

New Monsoon’s exhilarating blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation shines in an irresistible blend of sophisticated song craft, inventive musical exploration and down home rock-n-roll. “They have a collective power that comes off as a real unified force on stage. It’s not just a band, you know? It’s something transcendental.” - Michael Shrieve (original drummer, Santana)

New Monsoon has shared the stage with heavyweight guests Mike Stern, the late, great Martin Fierro (Zero, Legion of Mary), Steve Kimock, and Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth), to name a few. They've toured with String Cheese Incident, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Umphrey's McGee (Big Summer Classic Tour), supported Moe, The Wailers, etc. and are a featured headliner in venues such as the Fillmore (SF), Gothic Theater (Denver), and the Warehouse (Houston). They are also a perennial favorite of the festival circuit including marquee festivals like Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Langerado, High Sierra, Telluride Bluegrass, Austin City Limits and many others.

The band's quality associations continue with their recorded output. 2007's V was produced by Grateful Dead sound engineer John Cutler, and 2005's The Sound was helmed by original Santana percussionist Michael Shrieve and Paul Kimble (Grant Lee Buffalo, Luna). The latest album, New Monsoon Live, a double-cd set, features tunes from all eras of the band’s deep catalog.

Miller and Ferlino have also recently formed a supergroup collective, The Contribution, along with Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth) Keith Moseley (String Cheese Incident) Matt Butler (Everyone Orchestra) and Sheryl Renee (Black Swan Singers). SCI Fidelity Records released Which Way World, The Contribution’s inaugural album, in 2010. Miller released his first solo album, Ancient Wisdom, in 2011. Carper performs as a solo act and as half of the duo, Bo & Lebo, with Dan Lebowitz of ALO.

Finally, rock n' roll
Awesome band. Favorite songs are Greenhouse (which I first heard on Jam-On Sirius Radio), Copper Mine, The Other Side, and White Sky Rain. Catch em while you can at the smaller venues. I hear they're better outdoors for some reason.

corrie

amazing!
favorite song is "Alaska"!

Ralf (Germany)

The heaven of Jam-Rock.
Is there betterJam-Rock in this world? Sit down, listen and fly away. These guys from San Francisco are the kings of chorus, delicate song-writing and brilliant playing. Very close to heaven. Same level like Ekoostik Hookah, Big Wu, Asssembly of Dust, moe.

They've come a long way, baby
This CD shows the phenomenal growth of a band that has been traveling the country nonstop on tour and plays together so seamlessly. They really communicate musically with each so well, and almost all the songs here are transformed with more improvisation when they play live.
This album is a great showcase of their many styles and fantastic vocal harmonies! Love Alaska too~
It only goes out of rotation in my house when I've got a live show in the CD player.
Go see them at a show near you!

Jennifer Smith

Awesome. Awesome.
