Drummer Gary Novak's influence came from his parents. His mother, pianist Carol Novak, played with her trio at the London House. His father, Larry Novak, the famous Chicago pianist, not only encouraged the career of his son but also put him to work. His credits read like a who’s who - from George Benson to Alanis Morrissette, from Lee Ritenopur to Alan Holdsworth.

Keyboardist and producer Scott Kinsey is a world-class improviser and music conceptualist. Widely known as one of the most capable jazz synthesists of his generation, Kinsey’s unique and original sounds continue to rapidly evolve. Scott has been privileged to work with many of the world’s great musicians, a growing list which speaks volumes.

Bassist Tim Lefebvre has amassed a reputation for being one of the world’s most innovative bassists. The Foxboro-native’s creative playing style is an addictive blend of jazz improvisation, rock undertones, and electronic grooves that can be heard on his appearances on over 150 recordings, ranging from Grammy award-winning albums such as David Bowie’s Blackstar to the soundtracks of classic films such as The Departed. From 2013 to 2018, Lefebvre was the bassist of the dynamic blues rock ensemble Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Ego Mondo is a group effort of these three seasoned and spirited musicians from various roots and influence. Gary Novak, Tim Lefebvre and Scott Kinsey started a weekly gathering to record improvised music. After a few sessions an identity appeared that carried a wide spectrum of influence from early hip hop, punk, EDM and jazz. The addition of Featured Guest vocalist Kokayi brought the perfect element of intellect, intrigue and content to the band. Other guest performances by Jason Lindner, Mike Landau, Rachel Eckroth and Troy Zeigler

Ego Mondo is set to release this winter. It takes about three seconds to get excited about the music; the opening track is fraught with anticipation and nervous, joyful energy as Kokayi channels some sort of supernatural energy. End Of Daze then proceeds to cover a lot of ground in seven tracks; eerie landscapes behind powerful haunting vocals, subterranean longing vocals from special guest Rachel Eckroth, humorous party vibes, and cutting social commentary. All with the feel that this is 100% Ego Mondo.
