Monster on Sunday

In the city that brought you Switchfoot and P.O.D., a new kind of band has emerged. A band that doesn’t bow to gods or masters. A band that won’t expect you to suspend your reason. A band that is carving out its own musical genre: atheist hard rock. I humbly introduce you to Monster On Sunday.

Formed in 2012, Monster On Sunday has been rocking the San Diego music scene, introducing a new wave of lyrical rationality to a thoroughly religious environment. So while worship groups are playing for morning service in the 800-some-odd churches in San Diego, Monster On Sunday will be kicking ass at the San Diego New Atheists meet-ups.

Steve and Tally Cass, the power duo behind the band, believe in the merits of science, the virtues of critical thinking, and consider “faith” to be sheer folly. And when they get to the Grammies they will not be thanking God. Instead, they will be playing shows and building the atheist community.

Influenced by bands like Bad Religion, Alice In Chains, and Black Sabbath, Monster On Sunday will leave your mind challenged and your soul… well, disproven.

Shelley Segal

“Mercurial voice and eclectic sound” (The Brag) genre defying singer-songwriter Shelley Segal creates a space for her listeners. A space for people to engage with ideas, to question and to reflect on the everyday – to see its layers, its depth, its meaning.

Desirous of all expressions, Shelley flirts with elements of jazz, folk, pop, blues, reggae and electronica, imparting a pure joy about music and its power. The spirited singer has been “creating a ripple effect with her melodic vocals, heartfelt passion, thought-provoking lyrics” (Leona Devaz, Weekend Notes) Shelley’s first single, folk protest song ‘Saved’ has become an anthem for grass-roots secular activists.

Collaborating with Adam Levy – guitarist for Norah Jones & Tracy Chapman – Shelley co-wrote and recorded ‘Little March’.

Shelley co-wrote and featured on ‘Chemistry’ – an award winning Drum & Bass track with Carl Cox.

Last year’s single, the reggae-inspired ‘Morocco’ from ‘An Easy Escape’ made a splash with coverage in the Australian National Press and the Moroccan World News.

“Truly an artist with international flair” (AU review) her powerful voice has taken her around Australia, Hong Kong, China, England and eight tours of the United States. She has performed to festival crowds of over 30,000 people.

An artist, an activist and an explicit storyteller, Shelley uses her music not only to express the way she sees the world, but to create the world that she wants to see.
