Biography

After years of making music together in the studio and on the road as part of Chuck’s solo project (“sensitive, introspective…inspired”—NY Times), Chuck E. Costa, Eric Dawson Tate, and Colin Meyer, were compelled to give their collaboration a name. The resulting Mon Monarch is a collective sound, ever-evolving in its synthesis of folk, roots, rock, americana, and indie with the diverse influences of its members.

The band is currently touring and supporting the re-mastered release of its “winningly understated debut, ” Waterproof Matches, recorded in a cabin in upstate NY.

“…you might be forgiven for thinking that the elegant New Haven, Connecticut trio hails from Northern California, such is the bucolic, loving, laid-back, pastoral, softly swooning, indulging warmth of this recording. These are songs of well-penned subtlety. Because the band has a history there is depth, strength and maturity. Consummate musical intelligence, clarity of expression, fun and satisfying nuance and a real knack for simple, but beautifully elegant touches…” (jivewired.com)

Plans are in the works for a second release, which promises to be an expression of the rock edge the group has been cultivating.
