Monarch Duo is a collaboration between Seattle guitarists Eli Rosenblatt and Cameron Peace.  We have been playing music together since 2008, recording and releasing our first album in 2009.  We've gotten a great response from the project and have been performing regularly since the group's inception.  We've written another group of songs we're really proud of and can't wait to release our 2nd album.  However, we need help paying for part of the costs of everything that goes into producing a CD.  

The music is inspired from a variety of sources.  Cameron mostly draws on his study of classical guitar and flamenco guitar when writing on his compositions for the duo.  Eli brings the influence of his Ashkenazi heritage, his knowledge of classical guitar, and his time spent playing salsa and African music to the group.  We've spent a lot of time writing, arranging and rehearsing the music.  So far we've recorded the 17 tracks that will go on the album and will be spending the next month mixing and mastering.  All of the money we raise with your help will go directly to the project.  We're excited to bring this new batch of music into the world!
