Event Summary

The Monologue Bombs is the solo moniker of sinner-songwriter Scott David Phillips, a 30-year veteran of the Raleigh NC music scene. His live solo performances are dynamic and intimate affairs, with Phillips switching from piano to accordion to guitar and back. His voice has garnered praiseworthy comparisons to Paul Simon and The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy. Phillips’ songs combine a poetic eye for detail; a strong sense of character; and a bracing, emotional honesty. Lyrical influences include Bruce Springsteen, Richard Buckner, Joni Mitchell and The Promise Ring, while the music trods a more lo-fi indie path, with nods to folk rock and chamber pop. Recent collaborators include The Mountain Goats' Matt Douglas, Kate Rhudy, Chatham County Line's John Teer, Whiskeytown's Caitlin Cary, Schooner's Reid Johnson, and Rachel Kiel, among others from his beloved North Carolina. Potluck Foundation released The Monologue Bombs’ bedroom pop coming-of-age song cycle Orchard EP in 2020, as well as the full-band roots-rocking Reaves EP in 2022. Phillips is currently playing a lot of shows and writing a 14-song concept album (Night Before the Plague) to be recorded in 2025. 

Caroline is a music maker, body worker, gardener and cook living in Raleigh, NC. She discovered poetry and song as a conduit for solitary times and playing music became her connection to the outside world. She fronted indie rock band The Bettys in the late 90s and in 2012 released a solo record, Potential. In 2014, Steve Howell of The Backsliders sat in with her at a fundraiser for a friend and Pinto was formed. You can also find Caroline as long time troubadour of the Love Hangover, an annual event bringing a diversity of musicians and flavors together in support of the healing power of music. Favorite early influences include Tom Petty, Chris Bell, Cowboy Junkies and Linda Ronstadt.
