Fun, Folk-pop with a hint of Hip Hop, the “Monkey King” is the latest independent 3-track CD Single from Brisbane based singer-songwriter Bart Thrupp. From the catchy lead guitar intro of the “Monkey King” to the chilled beats of “My mate the Sun” these tunes are easy to enjoy.
Described as energetic, genuine and undeniably Australian, Bart Thrupp’s enthusiasm for life and for music is contagious. Multi skilled and constantly multitasking, his folk pop melodies always have a touch of something more. Bart draws on a variety of popular genres, his tunes swinging from sweet vocals to rocking acoustic guitar, then dropping some beats while throwing in random bluegrass instruments along the way. Working through an already extensive repertoire, his simple yet dynamic one-man-band set-up is served with irrepressible charm, winning audiences from Cairns to Adelaide.
A storyteller at heart, it’s evident that Bart is truly inspired by his life on the road and the people he meets. Bart is currently working on his new record, due for release in October.
