Monique Varsames / Bio

Monique is an American Singer/Songwriter. Monique was born in Livonia, Michigan and lived in the Detroit suburbs before moving to Traverse City, MI, as a teenager. Enveloped in the “Rhythm and Blues”, Monique has sung with world-renowned artists as well as local, down home rooted musicians. All of which have helped shape her into the Bluesy, Americana singer/songwriter she is today.

Monique is currently working on her new record. Due out soon!! Working with Grammy Award winner C Lanzbom, at Sherwood Ridge Studios.

On her last album "Sweet Days", Monique and Executive producer Sean Harkness, brought in "A" class players: Grammy Award winning bassist Skip Ward and Mauro Refosco on percussion (David Byrne of the Talking Heads & Thom Yorke of Radio Head and Atoms for Peace).

Monique currently resides in the Northeast, in Westchester County, New York, with her family.
