ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Mozart to Mainstream, eclectic is the way to describe Blaire. From early on this musical retro child has been singing and writing since before she could remember. As a child classical training in the arts helped her to develop skill and a true love for music and it’s influence. As time passed hip-hop became the love of her life and her many musical influences collided to make a truly unique MC/ Singer/ Songwriter. Working with Motown greats form Marcus Belgrave, Sylvia Moy, and Ortheia Barnes to modern day movers and shakers Carl Craig and PAJAM this woman is poised for versatility and greatness. In addition to choreographing, styling, and staging for various artists, her writing credits include Ramiyah, The J Moss project, Vanessa Williams, and numerous R&B up and comings. Firmly routed in the sound of early soul music and inspired by an unconventional sense of rhythm and melodies, Blaire is more than an artist. She is an experience.

Music
I had the pleasure of meeting and hearing Monica perform at Atlanta\'s Underground Sugar Hill and she was fabulous! Her spirit and energy was breathtaking and I will definately keep on the look out for more performances and spread the word of \"Portraits of Me\".

Making her own mark!!
I really do like Monica's music and her approach to her art. Instead of copying anyone else, she has chosen to follow her own indivual path musically and lyrically and produced a very consistent and solid Album. If you are looking for R&B music that is not pandering to the latest styles in music or following the experimental rock/soul route, you can't go wrong in purchasing this Album!

Ms. Blaire is fierce!
I had the awesome pleasure to meet this sista recently, and all I can say is that she is amazing. Her energy is electric, her voice powerful yet sensual, and her music leans to all ends of the spectrum. From African drumming on track 6, to the intense message to be "set free" on track 18, to wanting to be loved as easy as you breathe on track 8...Monica embraces and shares her voice and music from numerous angles. This CD is awesome, but to see her live is electrifying.

Big Country -

Amazing experience, Every track is hot! Your style is amazing.
Portraits of Me is a muscial delight. Every track seems to be crafted and well inspired. I loved this! (and I usually dislike most music) This CD is a must have. Puts you in the mind of a Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill with a more inspired, hungry guidance to it. A must have in your collection.
