Go Fever

Go Fever

GO FEVER is Australian ex-pat Acey Monaro, Jim Campo (keys), Benjamin Burdick (bass), Keith Lough (guitar) and Josh Merry (drums). Their sound evokes all the best music from the second half of the last century, drawing on late 70's pub rock, new wave, girl groups and rock and roll.

Their eponymous debut LP, engineered and produced by Danny Reisch (White Denim, Delta Spirit, Shearwater), was independently released in February 2017 and received medium-high rotation on over 120 college radio stations across the US (making it onto the North American College and Community Top Adds Chart).

Go Fever were nominated as Best New Band in the 2017 Austin Music Awards (results pending) and made almost every local Best Of ’17 list.

They are currently recording their sophomore release at Jim Eno’s famed home studio, Public Hi-fi.

Go Fever's self-titled debut proves Acey Monaro isn't just one of Austin's best songwriters, but an heir to the likes of Elvis Costello - OVRLD, 3/28/17
"Their self-titled album, built around Aussie ex-pat Acey Monaro’s solid songwriting, was one of 2017 strongest debuts" - Austin Statesman, 12/27/2017
