Monk & Neagle are an American CCM duo from Amarillo, Texas, composed of Trent Monk and Michael Neagle.

History[edit]

Monk and Neagle met in college; after graduating, Neagle worked as a pastor while Monk released two solo albums through Grassroots Music, I Wait (1999) and Stars Would Fall (2003).[1] In 2003 the two began performing together when Monk asked Neagle to play with him on tour with Shane and Shane.[1] Neagle released his own independent solo record before the two officially signed with Flicker Records as a group. Their debut self-titled album followed in August 2004. Monk and Neagle as of recently have signed with Reunion Records.[2][3] Their second album, The Twenty-First Time, was released in 2007, and peaked at #17 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart and #12 on the Heatseekers chart.[4] As of January 2011, the duo's website is no longer registered,[5] and they no longer appear on the roster of artists at Flicker Records.[6]

Trent Monk is now living in Nashville, TN and still touring as a solo artist. In 2012, he partnered with Ed Cash, re-recorded a fan favorite, "Beautiful You" and released it independently to Christian radio. It reached the top-10 on radio and top-50 songs on Billboard's Top Christian Songs of 2012. In 2013, Trent and Ed Cash recorded the latest Trent Monk single, "Rise" which is currently getting radio play and picking up steam.

Michael began as the worship pastor at the Hillside Christian Church Lubbock (TX) Campus in January of 2013.
