Other members of the collective include Alcian Lindo whose sweet and sensitive vocals round out the band's powerful instrumentals.

George Lacson is officially releasing his latest EP on May 18th, 2014.

The title signifies all the talent that has joined George on his latest creation including members from Graham Central Station,The John Lee Hooker Jr. Band, organist Wil Blades, and other monsters from the San Francisco Bay Area. One notable track sets a darker, yet powerful tone, to the hit song “Get Lucky” from Daft Punk. Listen to George as he tells his story through the sounds of “Monsters”.
