Bio

Monika Wall has never turned away from a challenge. After singing in a competition in Hamburg Germany she felt that time spent in Europe was essential to her career. She returned home, told her husband who agreed, and 6 weeks later they had sold the house and were on a plane with their 2 and 5 year old sons to spend 5 years singing in Europe. Audiences were drawn in by her "spine tingling voice" and were brought to their feet, time after time as she sang music from Porter to Puccini. She loved her experience and when she returned home she felt  somewhere between these two worlds. It was in this "in between" that she was soon to find her true voice.
One night, woken by the insistence of a song in her head that she didn't recognize, she went downstairs to record it. As soon as she had sung it, another song came, and then another. This call to create began her song writing career. Monika's songs have thought provoking lyrics and catchy melodies which span musical styles and redefine them.Taking their cue from the broad scope of music Monika has sung in her life, it is jazz based music from all over the world rather than world music.
Despite the wide range of styles the songs somehow still carry the fingerprint of one musical signature, uniquely her own. Best defined by the rumba based 'Vocalise on a Magic Carpet' it is a world between worlds.
