|Fingermonkey, Keith Secola's third CD on Akina Records is "Alter-Native" music that defies categorization, running from beautiful instrumental ballads and Native rhythms to on-the-edge rock, folk-inspired tales, surreal audio explorations, and driving rock and hip hop-flavored work. He notes, "Our performances are like a traveling medicine show, where I interact with the audience through different landscapes."
