Originally from a country town in Australia, Acey Monaro fell in love whilst on holiday in Austin, Texas, and eventually made the permanent move to the Lone Star State to marry the guy (now Go Fever’s bassist) in 2013. That year she recorded her debut EP with Brad Bell (War On Drugs, Arcade Fire, Spoon).
In 2016, Acey assembled a group comprised of members of her favorite Austin bands – Jim Campo (keys), Benjamin Burdick (bass), Keith Lough (guitar) and Josh Merry (drums) - to form Go Fever. Their sound evokes all the best music from the second half of the last century, drawing on late 70's pub rock, new wave, girl groups and rock and roll.
Their eponymous debut LP, engineered and produced by Danny Reisch (White Denim, Delta Spirit, Shearwater), was independently released in February 2017 and received medium-high rotation on over 120 college radio stations across the US (making it onto the North American College and Community Top Adds Chart).
Go Fever were nominated as Best New Band in the 2017 Austin Music Awards (results pending) and made almost every local Best Of ’17 list.
They are currently recording their sophomore release at Jim Eno’s famed home studio, Public Hi-fi.
