Toni Monserrat Inc. has shared stage with artists such as Graham Parker and Brinsley Schwarz, Dan Stuart (from Green On Red), Sid Griffin (Long Ryders). And also with his close friends Jason Ringenberg and Tim Easton (both guest artists on TM Inc. debut album: 38 Bucks). After two bands and two decades of songs, ’38 Bucks’ (Desert Dog Records, 2014) was the first solo release of singer-songwriter Toni Monserrat, who is now in the process of recording his second album. His debut album was defined as ‘a musical self portrait of the troubles and hopes of the 21st century individual’. A bit closer to silvery Americana than to his previous southern and punk western previous cult bands, in this project electric guitars have been left in the cases to give the whole recording an all-time natural sound, and to let songs breathe and speak by themselves. Stories about happy and unhappy breakups, hope, wicked characters and a lot of irony blend into a work that comes from the heart. 38 Bucks guests include the above mentioned Jason Ringenberg and Tim Easton, together with Canadian The Minnikins, and has been praised by musicians such as Sid Griffin or Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine).
Artists that have covered their songs: Tim Easton, Dropkick or Danny Wilson.
