Who is Monti Kingu?
Monti Kingu is the new alias of songwriter and producer, Sean Thurman, who is based in Lewiston, New York.
A self-taught musician, Thurman learned guitar in his teen years and later expanded to piano, bass, and electronic instruments. He plays regularly on the Western New York circuit with multiple live acts (Mikanecho, Phriendly Phoes, Irregardless, Papa Foxtrot). He began recording and releasing original music in 2016 with his debut solo album “Cold River” following up the next year with “Making Noise with Broken Toys”.
“I had been playing around with electronic drum machines and MIDI instrumentation and wanted to do something a little weirder than the guitar focused rock I had been doing up to that point.”
"The Legend of Monti Kingu" was released in 2019.
