I met Monica at the 2007 URB Alt Festival She’s interesting to me because she’s an example of how the "rock" attitude doesn’t always mean guitar-driven volume. In this interview, she talks about how she came to her ethereal and experimental sound despite having a father who loved and introduced her to Motown.
Another great example of the range of Black interests.
The track that you hear at the beginning and end of the video is her song "Icon" taken from her new album Synergy. Check it out below.
