Sea of Monsters, Jon Pomplin, Tim Barrett-Ford, Declassified Records

Award winning Chicago based rock band SEA OF MONSTERS features Lead Vocalist Timothy Barrett-Ford with John DiNunzio (guitars & vocals), Jon Pomplin (bass guitars,  keyboards & backing vocals) and Tara Rich (drums & percussion). They released their debut CD/EP in December of 1998 which was engineered and co-produced by Phil Bonnet, one of the greatest engineers to come out of the Chicago area. The release led to a summer tour, including appearances on "The Fox Diner" stage at “Taste of Chicago” for Fox TV (WFLD-32) and several other local radio and TV outlets. Following the tour, Sea of Monsters were signed to a record contract with an Illinois record label/studio and began work on the follow up full length record. Unfortunately, though several tracks were finished or nearly done, the record was shelved in 2001 and the group disbanded.  The members went their separate ways forming other successful music projects but didn't connect again for almost 2 decades. 

In late 2019, after an exhaustive search, John DiNunzio and Jon Pomplin, were able to track down the master 24 track tapes from the 1999-2001 studio recording sessions for the label. The tape reels were restored, and the tracks converted to hi-resolution digital format by the team at Sonicraft A2DX. These previously unreleased songs have been completed and will soon be mixed and mastered for release in fall of 2022. 

In preparation of the new release, Declassified Records re-issued 4 singles from the original CD/EP to digital format in the spring/summer of 2020. The songs were remastered by Grammy winner Neil Citron from Chicago icon Phil Bonnet's original 2 track Master mix on DAT.
