Prairie born Monika Wall is an award winning singer and a songwriter whose music has taken many journeys. The warmth of roots/pop and the power of gospel/blues are infused throughout her music and have led her from an African American gospel choir to majestic 1000 year old European cathedrals, country churches and concert halls. Drawing from an incredibly vast world her music has an eclectic sound with a cinematic quality. Her contagious and somehow familiar originals feel like a long lost friend rediscovered, reaching the deepest caverns of the heart.
With a Masters Degree in vocal performance from world renowned Indiana University Bloomington, IN. she has cultivated her artistry as a singer and in 2016 she was honoured to be among an outstanding group of Canadian composers presented by the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra.
Monika released a new album, Earth, in Fall 2018. Filled with songs of grounding yourself, finding your place on this earth and experiencing joy on the journey it is a a place of rest in the hustle of a mad world.
