Timothy Monger is a Michigan native and a co-founding member of The Great Lakes Myth Society, a folk-based group with robust, energetic alt rock-band leanings. The band has two albums and one single; Monger is currently laboring away on what will be his second solo album. Involved in the Ann Arbor rock and folk scene since the mid '90s, he attributes the surge of folk-based creativity to the foundering Michigan economy.
