Monique Angele returns to Australia to perform songs from her new album "Alive" after doing an international tour. Monique Angele is a unique emerging Canadian singer-songwriter currently based in Australia. Her music blends both classical and pop elements in a style that exhibits both pianistic finesse and soaring vocals.
Monique's performance history makes her no stranger to the stage, possessing a background in solo piano and voice repertoire, opera and musical theatre. Originally honing her vocal skills in classical opera, she decided that performing her own music was her calling.
Her live performances of her original music always convey a charismatic and elegant response from audiences and have won rave reviews wherever she performs. She has performed extensively throughout Canada, Australia and the UK. Her new album “Alive” will be released Sept. 7th 2018.
This hotly anticipated album features a mix of modern pop, classical, soul elements and consists of a wide range of lyrical content - love, self-reflection, hope, human rights and political change.
"I was inspired to release this album because I wanted to create something that pushed the boundaries in regards to songwriting, production and subject matter. I believe each song dives into the raw emotions and passions of what it feels like to be "alive" and to be fearless in expressing oneself. All the songs come from personal experiences, passions and beliefs”
