Her crystal clear vocal style touches on the sultry soulfulness of Diana Krall, the innocent vulnerability of Nora Jones with the accessible, funky, groove-oriented pulse of a new-age Sade.
Employing some of the understated phraseology of the fabulous Chet Baker, award-winning Monique Hellenberg is comfortable fronting notable bands that includes electro-funk outfit Goldfish, straight ahead jazz combo Breakfast Included, 12-piece Afro-Cuban Salsa orchestra Maquina Loca, or just laying tracks in studio. Monique is currently working towards her original music entity, called ‘It’s Perfect Now’. She features on various recordings, including Breakfast Included’s album, ‘Night Work Ahead’ and The James Kibby Project’s debut album, ‘Nowhere To Hide’ as well as an album of children’s music entitled ‘Songs of Africa’.
