Melbourne blues-rockers Zen Monkee (Chris Beltrame, Anthony Beltrame, Aidan Buckley, Harrison Leitch) write music from another era. Excavating the fuzzed out sensibilities that ’60s blues-rock titans Cream and Canned Heat first championed. Released through Citrus Records on the 20th of November 2020, the four-piece delivered their self-titled debut album.
Fronted by Chris Beltrame (Vocals/Guitar), the 10 track LP spans across the many emotions that come from varying stages of life, ranging from relationships to rebellions, striking a resonant chord with any listener. Churning behind the vocals are the blues driven riffs and solos of Anthony Beltrame (Guitar), the groovy bass licks of Aidan Buckley (Bass) and the powerful drum playing of Harrison Leitch (Drums).
