  4. Monet’s Tina Turner influence comes from her extended family doing backup singing and dancing with The Ike and Tina Turner Revue! Very bluesy and folksy sound!

  5. I first met Monet in what was supposed to be a male vocal part on a song she wrote, when i heard her sing i got chills, the smoothness and on demand ability to hit the notes in her voice was amazing. After hearing her song I realized that she didnt need a back up vocalist, it was radio ready without any editing. I cant wait to see what she does next. Hands down with the right label and the continued efforts within her career, I have no doubt later in life while looking back, Monet will be remembered where ever she goes in her career. Best luck to her and the music industry will be honored to have her on their team
