Liquid Monk's Self-Titled Debut LP Out Today

The self-titled debut from Detroit band Liquid Monk is available now via Beverly Martel and is receiving widespread critical acclaim.

The debut full-length follows Liquid Monk's 2015 debut EP, Yaga, which served as the group's introduction to Michigan's jam and live electronic scene. The EP was a mix of jazz fusion, lush synthesizers and pounding live electronica, leading to performances alongside acts like Quantic, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, GOSH PITH and Aqueous at well known clubs and festivals in Michigan including Ann Arbor Summer Festival Top Of The Park, Dally In The Alley, Metro Times Blowout, The Loving Touch, Cliff Bell's, The Loft and many more.

In 2016, Liquid Monk connected with talented vocalists and rappers in the Detroit music scene. With a diverse pool of lyricists, they realized a vision of merging their jazz and fusion roots with electronic music and the vocal power of pop, hip hop and R&B. The band acts as their own producer, showcasing the unique talents of each collaborator while also creating their own sonic landscape.

Liquid Monk is multi-instrumentalists Eric "Fil" Fillip (Drums, Percussion), Dan Gruszka (Guitar, Synth, Electronics), Michael Leonard (Guitar, Synth) and Omar Taji (Keyboards, Synth Bass).
