Electronic Press Kit
Monica Whitlock is a 25-year-old Boston, USA-based black singer-songwriter.
Her music focuses on the journey of using her voice to unapologetically express and empathize with her past experiences.
"Her songs go so far beyond what I tend to expect from young singer/songwriters (a cliched take on the angst of young love/loss, etc.) Her work has a mastery and an emotional depth that is impressive, and her songs convey real emotion. I had tears listening to her album of stories" (Section36).
Shining at the forefront of the music scene, Monica Whitlock embarked on an innovative music career in 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. From an early age, Whitlock always knew that music was life’s calling. Throughout childhood, Whitlock posted original compositions to YouTube and BandCamp through DIY methods of recordings.
In 2019, Whitlock started performing her work at local venues and soon created quite a buzz in Boston MA and beyond. This took her across the country to Music City - Nashville TN. That year, Whitlock frequently traveled to Nashville TN on weekends to participate in workshops and writers rounds, leading her to fall in love with her craft further. Since then, Whitlock has worked with Shannon Mcarthur (Dashboard Confessional, Jesse Mcartney) on her most recent single, "JACK+ROSE" as well as her debut five track EP: "Promise You'll Stay Long Enough to Hear This" (09.23.22), in partnership with Fueled By Passion Publishing.
"Whitlock's specific and evocative lyrics and impressive vocals, ranging equally between a raw, lamenting quality and impressive high tempo expression are primary to the artists storytelling" (Broadway World Music).
Today, Whitlock owns a proud 250+ song catalog. The name Monica Whitlock is synonymous with engaging live performances and mind-blowing recordings.
"Whitlock has established her own unique style and positioning as an artist who has found her own spot for creative expression with down-to-earth honesty. She is always in motion on expanding her catalog of music and content, and is a unique and impactful songwriter" (Performers on the Go)
After years of anticipation, Whitlock's debut EP is arriving this Friday 09.23.2022, and fans and critics alike couldn’t be more excited.
