Biography

Take one hot Asian chick with a Gibson, add a quirky and eccentric singer/songwriter, sprinkle in a self-proclaimed freak, and just a dash of frazzled beats, and you have My Monster. With an eclectic blend of 80’s and 90’s rock stylings and a sound often compared to The Pixies and Stone Temple Pilots, this San Jose four-piece has earned a reputation for rockin’ hard and often. With more than seven years together, My Monster has played every bar and club the South Bay has to offer, as well as toured up and down the west coast and as far east as Las Vegas. And as the band would say, “that’s not bad for a bunch of hacks!”

In 2007, My Monster released their first full-length album, titled “In Tune With the Voices in Your Head,” to enthusiastic reviews. The album showcases their trademark sound reminiscent of The Cure – a mix of spunky, catchy melodies and dark emotional lyrics. The first two rockin’ tracks, “Don’t Be Mean” and “PYAAM” are ripe for radio play, but listeners also appreciate the slowed down jams “Shy Like Me” and “Sickness.” The polished album shows the complexity within My Monster while bringing their fans along on an irresistible musical journey.

But it’s not just the music or the lineup that sets this band apart. My Monster is truly at home on stage. From the first chunky riff to the final resonating crash, My Monster bursts onto the stage with and explosion of sweat, passion, and raw energy that creates a connection with their audiences, earning them new fans wherever they play.
