Menic’s music is rooted in the musical traditions around the Northern Atlantic and the Deep Blues you find up and down the Mississippi. As a singer, songwriter, guitarist and fiddle player, Menic adds various modern styles in to the mix. In his musical past he performed and worked with bands and artists of various musical genres, Punk, Cajun, Stoner Rock, Irish Folk and Bluegrass, e.g. Zeno Tornado, The Dead Brothers, Mama Rosin, Delaney Davidson, The Tight Finks.These influences shine through on his first full-length album, released this May 2012 on the Voodoo Rhythm Label. It offers 12 original songs from a wide palette of moods and styles, played on acoustic instruments like guitar, banjo, mandolin, accordeon, double bass, violin and slide guitar.
His songs put you into places that you’ve never been, but feel you’ve always known. He turns his story into fiction so you might remember your own, and shows the dark side of his heart so you might find some peace. He lets you forget your every day if it looks too bleak, and makes you feel at home, right there where you are, in front of the stage or at the bar. Menic grew up near Boston, Massachusettes and now lives in Switzerland.
