Biography

Monica Yonge was born in Holland and raised in Toronto, Canada. At an early age she had a natural feel for music. She began playing acoustic guitar in her late teens after purchasing a second hand guitar from the local music store with money she saved from her part-time job. A self taught guitar player she picked up cover songs from sheet music, other guitar players and tablature. It was at this time when she began to experiment with different chord progressions that sparked her to begin writing her own songs.

Yonge received private vocal instruction and has been singing for a ripe sixteen years with a number of Toronto underground bands. She has an alto/contralto vocal range which is why she is sometimes compared to Cher, Johnette Napolitano, Grace Slick or Chrissie Hyndes. Of the many bands that Yonge grew up listening to Etta James, Johnny Winter and Jim Morrisson had the most influence on her.

Monica Yonge’s debut released on Oct 09 2004 is edgy and melodic, a cross between Led Zeppelin, Grace Slick & Cher. “If you like your rock a tad hard with strong solid female vocals, Monica Yonge’s CD is a good choice.” Amy Lotsberg, Whimiscal Productions
