Biography

New Monsoon represents the best of the San Francisco jam scene. Formed during the El Nino rains of Northern California in the late 90’s, this band has distilled their original sound with top-flight musicianship, tireless live performing and a thoroughly open-minded musical perspective. NM’s unique style blends free-flying rock with acoustic stylings, tight vocal harmonies and lyrical songcraft. With a fearless pioneering spirit, they’ve become one of the most cutting edge bands on the scene today.

“New Monsoon was formed around Bo Carper’s acoustic finger-style picking and the sharp, driving leads of electric guitarist Jeff Miller. The interplay of warm acoustic tones and charged electric bite-born from a shared love of Led Zeppelin III-has remained at the heart of its sound through various line-up changes, now a streamlined quintet with Phil Ferlino (keyboards), Marshall Harrell (bass) and Sean Hutchinson (drums). New Monsoon is built on the pillars of the 60’s SF scene-a healthy dose of improvisation, a psychedelic character and a broad stylistic reach-without expressly emulating anyone” - Dennis Cook, Relix Magazine

“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

New Monsoon has shared the stage with heavyweight guests Mike Stern (Miles Davis), the late, great Martin Fierro (Zero, Legion of Mary), Steve Kimock, and Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth), to name a few.
