Monelise is an artist in whose haunting compositions classically inspired soundscapes are situated into 21st century tone poems. Her music blurs the boundaries between classical and contemporary; lyric and poetry; reality and dream. Having toured over 20 street pianos and traveled to Iceland to make an elemental music video, 'The Flood', in 2017, she is currently completing her Masters Degree in Popular Music at Goldsmiths University and performing at some of London's most elegant venues. 'The Flood' is due for release on June 15th, 2018 and is supported by live appearances throughout the UK.
Monelise's 2018 highlights include having 'The Flood' video selected to play in Topshop stores and boutiques throughout June and July and her track 'Memory' being handpicked for NX Records' official 2018 mixtape.
Her environmentally inspired piece "Breathing Earth" was also included in the Whitstable Biennale's 2018 programme.
Monelise cites her influences as Kate Bush, Bjork, Michael Nyman, Yann Tiersen, Enrico Caruso, Frederic Chopin and many others.
*The Flood has gained radio play on: Heat FM, WA12 'Breaking' show, Channel Radio, Wythenshawe FM, Control Radio, Sound Lab Radio, Shoreditch Radio, K107FM
Reviews for 2017 single 'Your Moon':
"There's a uniquely ethereal nature to 'Your Moon,' as if Monelise plucked the lyrics and melody from the stars themselves" (Brett Stewart, The Independent Spotlight)

"Your Moon is a vivid and memorable song that touches you for a number of reasons. The lyrics are deep and wise whilst the vocal and composition have ethereal majesty and spine-tingling moments." (musicmusingsandsuch)
