Artist of The Day: Janelle Monáe

posted by on 07/05/2018

Thursday July 5th: JANELLE MONAE

Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, arranger, producer, and actor Janelle Monáe left her mark on 2010s R&B with an energized retro-futuristic sound wrapped in theatrical science fiction concepts. After she spent years grinding away in the Atlanta underground, Monáe capitalized on support from OutKast's Big Boi and developed into one of the most dynamic artists of her time, fusing soul, funk, hip-hop, and new with a spirited approach that seemed to treat entertainment and art as indivisible.

Janelle will stop at 20 Monroe Live this Saturday July 7th touring in support of her latest record and visual album Dirty Computer.
