The Pacific Southeast

This summer it’s been raining in Athens, and raining, and raining… and last week a Monsoon came to our front yard.

17-year old guitarist and songwriter, Sienna Chandler, drummer Joey Kegel (right), also 17, and bassist Imorie Curry (left), 20 are the Athens, GA post-punkers, Monsoon.

Here are some of the highlights from photographer Jason Thrasher’s shoot of Monsoon for the Flagpole cover story:

Sienna’s been writing songs since she was a kid, and she got schooled by local musicians at Camp Amped. You can learn more about the Nuci’s Space after school and summer programs for middle and high school aged kids, here.
