Too Soon Monsoon
Saskatoon, SK, S7M 2M2
Mobile: (306) 231-9068
Forming during the final days of summer 2016, the duo connected after Greg (vocals and keys) posted a “bandmate wanted” ad online to which Nathan (drums) was quick to respond. Too Soon Monsoon's style is a unique blend of many influences and genres. Nathan gained much of his experience in the heavy rock scene whereas Greg has a singer-songwriter/pop background.
To get an idea of TSM’s sound, imagine Jack White, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Nicks and Lauryn Hill coming together as one entity to perform with a combination of Tommy Lee and Meg White. Greg’s unique vocal style (sometimes mistaken for that of a female to unknowing listeners) and his energetic presence behind the keyboard compliments the dynamic and effortless power of Nathan’s drumming.
The duo began working with producer and One Bad Son bassist, Adam Grant in December 2016. They released their first EP, LITTLE FIRE on July 7, 2017. Lyrically, the four songs on the EP speak to feelings of anxiety, hesitation, and wanting to be in control while also touching on the universal desires to seek connection, belonging and purpose. A video for their second single, "We'll Live Forever" was released during the first week of July. The duo will be promoting LITTLE FIRE this summer before heading back into the studio. Highlights include two shows at Ness Creek Music Festival, as well as their EP release party at Vangelis Tavern in Saskatoon.
Too Soon Monsoon recently filmed three songs as part of the “Original 16 Brewery Sessions”, which will be released throughout the remainder of the year. The band also has plans in motion for a follow up EP, to be recorded with Grant and released before the end of 2017.
