Los Angeles, California, USA

Monroe explodes with creativity as they introduce a new strand of Alternative Pop which includes Funk and Hip-Hop influences.


Los Angeles-based Monroe is a five-man band penetrating the music scenes on both East and West coasts. Originally joining forces in 2009, while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, frontman Kelton Blackshear, guitarist Lawrence IV, and drummer Gabriel Baker, finished their first E.P, Outer Space, before moving to Hollywood and adding their newest members, bassist Trevor James and Gaia Rhodes to elevate the band’s sound. Having studied under a diverse group of mentors, Monroe’s new strain of alternative pop merges the heartfelt grooves of funk and hip hop, creating a modern sound that transcends audiences and is uniquely their own.
