Bio

Singer/songwriter/composer Asia Monique’s fresh sound and powerful vocals add renewed substance to the true essence of R&B. Asia has been a student of music from early childhood. Her lessons in music theory and Chicago grit solidify her foundation, allowing unrestricted and unconventional creative expression. Her mother has served as her main motivator and source of wisdom. She admires the work of Etta James, John Legend, Chris Brown, Jazmine Sullivan, and Frank Ocean.

For the past 5 years, Asia Monique has partnered with several artists on the Chicago scene, gearing up for her solo career. Her passion for and dedication to her craft, along with her larger-than-her-hair personality, have propelled her music to the forefront of up-and-coming vocalists. With an unrelenting drive, Asia strives to create classic tunes that people can relate to today or 20 years from now.

Asia’s debut EP, Looking Glass features a thoughtful and inner-focused approach to story telling. From single "Heroin," which features the gutsy play on words with a central focus around love, to that of a broken and uneasy conversation with "Solitude". Up-and-coming producer, iProduceWNDRS shared Asia's vision of depth and passion with her first project, taking her soulful, sultry sound and coupling it with the a fusion of distorted synths, speaker knocking bass and ethereal effects. The EP was recorded and mixed at Soundscape Studios under the direction of Jabari Rayford, with whom she credits her confidence in experimentation.
