Trio Of Awesuhm

United States


Trio Of Awesuhm is the stage name and band moniker of NY based singer-songwriter Monica Uhm. As a “serial collaborist”, a small contingency of local musicians she’s met through the years gathered together in the studio to bring some of her marquee songs to life over the winter of 2017/2018. This spawned the virtual musical village dubbed Trio Of Awesuhm and a full length album "cowboys&aliens" which was released in April 2018.

The sound is a bit of kitchen-sink twists on Americana given the common roots of folk / Americana in the songwriting but heavily doused in rock, country, pop and even a bit of psychedelic.

Trio Of Awesuhm is less a formal band than it is a fluid virtual one that includes any and all contributors to this recording project. The growing village of peers and collaborators continues to morph and evolve with each project.

For live shows the actual lineup may change but the spirit of bringing timeless music remains.

Currently the main lineup for live performances include:

Monica Uhm - lead vocalist, lyricist and composer. Her songs have been described as "catchy tunes with intelligent lyrics". Her past projects include fronting a number of rock and alternative bands prior to focusing on solo folk(ish) projects. In former bands, she has played in long-gone downtown NYC venues such as the Elbow Room, The Lion's Den, Kenny's Castaways, Spiral Cafe. She still regularly plays solo acoustic performances in the wider NY area and collaborates with other musicians. ( See for more information on solo projects)

James Kirkpatrick - drummer and percussionist. James has played, recorded and toured with various independent rock and alternative bands through the years. He is also currently a member of The Mighty Fergusons, a popular Westchester based band that regularly plays at top venues such as Garcia's and the Brooklyn Bowl.

Ken Dircks - bass (upright/electric). Ken is a ubiquitous musician in the Westchester music scene, tirelessly leading and contributing to a number of local area ensembles, events and programs as a curator, organizer and performer. The eclectic range of his current projects span from traditional jazz (The Ken Dircks Trio) to garage punk rock (Suzy's Garage).

Greg "Glue" Schettino - lead guitarist. Greg is a highly trained and versatile multi-instrumentalist, studio engineer and producer. He is a member of various eclectic funk-based bands and is an in-demand touring musician for other artists. One of his bands, Mr. Clifford Band, recently opened for Michael McDonald at the Tarrytown Music Hall.

Sammy Wags - keyboardist. Sammy Wags is also a highly trained multi-instrumentalist, studio engineer and producer. Also a member of Mr. Clifford Band, as well as a number of other musical projects.

The album title “cowboys&aliens” is a nod to the frivolity of putting labels on anything and yet it probes the question of what is native and what is extra-terrestrial in music and in life. Self-labeled philoso-folk, this eclectic catalogue of songs serve as a soundtrack for life's literal and figurative road trips.
