Monique started her musical career under the direction of the late Collette Black who was well respected in NYC's Cabaret community. She studied vocals under the guidance of Eadie Scott, Luca Chesney, Elizabeth Russo and Craig Derry. While she continued to grace the stages of Don’t Tell Mama, 53 Below and Laurie Beechman Theater, she joined a Country/Blues band as a backup singer which opened a new and exciting world for her to explore. She now invests her energies into bringing the musical community a “flavor" of her own. Her current single “In And Our of Love” from the Life After The Blues EP is nominated for an LDM 2020 Blues/Jazz Award and is also featured on Bongo Boy Records Volume XVI CD. Monique’s music can be described as a fusion of Blues, Americana & Jazz. Her songs are played and hit the top charts on indie stations internationally and available for purchase worldwide.
