Welcome to Mateo Monk Music

Well, it's been a full creative summer of festivals and fun, and now I'm gonna pack off to India for 6 weeks for a 3 week silent meditation retreat with my spiritual teacher, Amma Sri Karunamayi, at her jungle ashram. The following weeks I will spend at the ashram of Ramana Maharhsi and the holy mountain of Arunachala. Immediately upon coming back, I plan to begin recording my follow up album to State Of Affairs, to have ready for release in the Spring!

In the meantime, please enjoy this new song I produced, "Never Met A Woman (I Didn't Love)", a collaborative effort between August West of the Broke Down Hustlers and myself that we're calling "Monk Vs. West". August wrote the tune and lyric and sang, and I arranged the music and played all the instruments, with the exception of the saxophone and some harmony vocals, which were done by Austin Litz of the band Litz.
