A cross between folk/pop, jazz and blues, singer/songwriter Monika Wall has earned her chops singing in folk and jazz festivals, European cathedrals and African American gospel choirs.
The musical kaleidoscope of opera singer to jazz singer, a year singing in an African American gospel choir and 5 years performing in Europe makes Monika Walls' music singular. When 3 new songs, all in one night, called her to write her own songs these musical worlds cross pollinated into the creation of a new sound. Two studio albums ‘Parallel Mondo’ a jazz inspired album of original's (2013- producer Mike Falk) and ‘Earth’- prairie folk/pop and gospel/blues originals (Nov. 2018- Juno award winning producer Murray Pulver) reflect the craftsmanship and heart of its maker. Touched by her distinctive voice that moves between intimate and powerful, her lyrics are filled with thoughts that speak of grounding yourself, finding your place on this earth and through it all loving those around you. ‘Earth’ is the first of four in a series (Earth, Wind, Water, Fire) which asks what does it mean to be looking for true happiness?
“A modern cool jazz vocalist that’ll have you feeling Norah Jones. It might take a minute for her uniqueness to sink in through this over communicated world, but once it does, you’ll wonder where she’s been all your life.”
