Monroe cites music legend Marvin Gaye as his biggest influence, and his fans often refer to him as a modern-day Marvin Gaye because of their vocal similarities. Monroe creates music to inspire people and to promote a message of love, sexuality, and healthy relationships.
Monroe got his start in the music business recording demos and performing at local nightclubs in Virginia, Maryland, and Georgia. In 2009, he parlayed his success with the release of his single, Lets Make a Movie. The song garnered favorable reviews from local media and set the tone for several follow-up songs, including Super Star, Can I Get a Peek, and Rest Stop.
Monroe recently released a new single, Proud to be With You, which has already begun to create a buzz in both Atlanta and the DC metropolitan area.
As a performer, Monroe has been fortunate to open for some of the biggest names in R&B and Hip Hop, including Brownstone, Silk, Mac10, Killer Mike, Bone Crusher, David Banner and Kurtis Blow. The aspiring musician admits to being no stranger to hard work and perseverance and, throughout his career, he has been made numerous sacrifices in order to become the best artist possible.
His skills and accomplishments have been recognized by his fans who support his shows and introduce new fans to his music. Monroes future plans include owning his own record label, writing and producing other artists, and producing various film projects.
