“…while certain tunes like the sparsely arranged piano-vocal driven ballad “Make You Love Me” and “Damaged Goods” are personal expressions from across the romantic spectrum, others like “Rally Call,” a stomping rock-gospel-jazz anthem of self-delivery, are fired with a deep social consciousness” - The JW Vibe

THE SOVEREIGN ONE.

A singer, a poet, a messenger – Monique DeBose is all this and more. Stepping into the spotlight with The Sovereign One, she radiates love and acceptance, pride and bravery, in each of her songs. Monique has never been one to shy away from life’s challenges, and her new album encapsulates a wealth of experience into seven songs in which the LA-based songwriter and vocalist offers up messages that are both personal and universal, messages of acceptance, of empowerment and of pride.  

Through the Sovereign One’s sultry opening track, “Damaged Goods,” to the powerful, rallying call of the appropriately titled “Rally,” to the lush romantic ballad “Let You Love Me,” Monique claims her own rightful place as a strong, powerful woman, using the power of music to empower all women to do the same, to revel in their desire with no apology, and to allow themselves to simultaneously experience freedom and belonging.
