Still working on that hot first release.



On September 20, 2008 guitarist and founding member Chris Vance passed away, starting a long recovery which culminated in the bands current lineup and sound. Reducing in size from 5 to 4 members, One Trick Monkey refocused and were able to increase the potency of their unique brand of rock. In 2012, the band started recording what will become their sophomore release. Several preliminary tracks from this upcoming album are featured in their Sonicbids EPK.

One Trick Monkey has been performing in Texas since 2003. The bands 2007 debut album “Unleashed” earned several accolades including radio and TV appearances on 93.7 KLBJ, ME Television, and Fox 7 News. The single "Showdown" was featured on compilation CDs produced by Fireside Creative and The Austin Indie Alliance. The single "On the Level" was featured on the Zippo Hot Tour compilation CD. The single “Propaganda” was featured on the InSite Magazine Compilation CD alongside Austin artists Vallejo and Patrice Pike. The band is currently sponsored by UV Vodka and Phillips Union.
