Smooth sounds by Monique


Midlands soul artist Monique brings her debut live tour to Glee Club Nottingham, Sunday, July 14.

There’s no mistaking the distinctive nature of Monique’s soulfully rich vocal tone.

It is an attractive sound that has been compared to the likes of Mary J Blige and India.Arie, not to mention Alicia Keys.

In 2011, Monique celebrated the release of her debut album Unbroken, which was produced by 5am’s Tony Bean (Lemar, Beverley Knight, Nu Life, Usher, Kelly Rowland) and featured the singles Daughter Shine’and ‘Colourful’.

She is now preparing to release her second album Full Circle, with a debut tour that will include a full live band.

She explained: “I chose the name ‘Full Circle’ for the tour and album because this project is about returning back to love. “

“It’s about the accepted truth that we are nothing without love. “

Monique added: “My forthcoming album explores love in different contexts.”

Doors open at 7pm and tickets are £7. Call the box office on 0871 472 0400.
