What’s up, homie! I’m Monica!

I’m a music journalist, professional digital marketer, musician, podcaster, metalhead and breakfast buffet enthusiast.

I understand most developing bands are simply looking for the best ways to promote their music so they can forge a long and successful music career.

However, I firmly believe there is a lack of transparency, support and information readily available on how the modern music industry actually works.

After seeing far too many of my talented peers give up on their dreams because they felt frustrated their bands weren’t progressing at the rate they wanted, I knew I had to do something.

Through my consulting services, online courses, podcast and blog, my mission is to help rock/metal/punk bands grow their audience, increase their exposure and make the impact they dream of.

After all, without music, the world would be a much darker place.

How to work with me:

I work with bands over a 12 week period to craft their epic release and marketing plans, grow their audience on social media, nail their branding and get the traction their music deserves.

I also offer 90min intensive sessions for bands who need immediate guidance on how to move forward successfully.
