"While guitar is his true tonal voice, there is an ease in his arrangements for all instruments, every part having its distinct natural voice while seamlessly blending within the entire composition. His production is sharp and clever with an impressively diverse tonal palate. Moniker’s musical and lyrical lines are subtly placed and wonderfully arranged, layered but never overdone, huge and quiet, fixed and exploring, catchy and cerebral." - Lesley – Great Dark Wonder
Regina based, fifteen year music veteran Brodie Moniker (PandaCorn, Brain Sauce, Fancy Diamonds), is a truly musical diverse talent with sophisticated songwriting, artistic arrangements, and progressive-pop presentations.
Polite, honest and aggressive, Moniker puts his entire being into every song, challenging listeners’ presumed ideas of modern rock, reminiscent of past and present sound masters like Frank Zappa, Brian Eno, Nick Drake, and Jack White.
Touring internationally with critically acclaimed artists like Jeff Straker, while producing and engineering breakthrough albums for artists like Megan Nash (PandaCorn), Moniker has honed his sound and developed his songwriting, melding his influences into a true sonic mosaic.
Poignant and poppy, expanding and exploratory, Moniker combines modern avant-garde sensibilities with a pop flare, creating brave, listenable music, pushing boundaries while retaining an accessible ear.
