MASTER'S MONKEYS, established 2005, is a musical project created and run by composer/lyricist Paul Aka Kessler. The music is not conform to a straightforward musical genre, although it’s oftentimes Blues related. Other blended musical styles are: Rock, Folk, Hip Hop and Jazz. The moods of the songs range from wild and aggressive, dark and haunting to heartbreaking or funny and not infrequently with a wink of the eye. Strong musical influences are: Frank Zappa, Tom Waits, Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys, Nick Cave, Jack White and Neil Young. Beside the music itself MASTER'S MONKEYS seeks the closeness of visual arts and philosophy as well. The lyrics of their Blues song God's Monkeys - Remix 2019 set the main theme of Master’s Monkeys’ philosophical view. In the course of this MASTER'S MONKEYS points out values that matter beyond and far away from politics and questions every religion in general. Master’s Monkeys provides an artistic world for open-minded music enthusiasts who enjoy diversity off the beaten path of mainstream. MASTER'S MONKEYS creates fearlessly, believing that this world only makes sense if we bring meaning into being.
