Fighting Smokey Joe
Fighting Smokey Joe
Fighting Smokey Joe is a pop and reggae rock band from Northern California formed by long time friends singer Monica Thiede and guitarist Dave Powell. Combining their love of rock and roots based music, it wasn't long before this songwriting team’s laid-back grooves, heavy hooks and catchy pop melodies paved the way to its reggae rocking sound. With a blend of Chili Pepper inspired riffs, soulful No Doubt like vocals, and an undeniable Sublime style groove, Fighting Smokey Joe is all about the love, great friends and good times.
On March 19, 2013 FSJ released their debut EP titled “Till The Morning” with Producer Arne Frager, The Plant Studios. The collection of songs includes hook laden and summer feel good song “All I Need Is You” and laid back, sing-a-long “Till The Morning.” The record was recorded in San Rafael, California by Alan Hertz and mastered by John Cuniberti.
Monica Thiede and Dave Powell were first introduced at a mutual friend’s jam. In 2010, the two met Bay Area drummer and percussionist Lu Rodriguez. With the addition of Marin County local bassist Tim Baker shortly after, FSJ’s rocking rhythm section was born.
The music of FSJ draws influence from a wide range of artists including Sublime, No Doubt, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Michael Franti, Bruno Mars, Jack Johnson, Led Zeppelin, The Police, Pepper and many more.
“Till The Morning” is available on CD Baby, iTunes and all major online retailers. Check out the band’s website for all the latest news and upcoming shows at or follow us on Facebook at
