Part android, part human, all talent, Janelle Monae is Alice in Wonderland and Dorothy from Oz all rolled up into one. Monae moved from Kansas to New York to ATL Georgia where she met Big Boi from Outkast and was signed by P. Diddy to Bad Boy in 2006. The musical heir to James Brown, Michael Jackson and Grace Jones, Janelle Monae is like Prince’s spiritual, little soul sister.
Having toured with The Purple One and opened for other famous acts like Of Montreal, No Doubt and Arcade Fire, Monae is already a seasoned veteran who, only in her 20s, will be with us for a long time to come. Janelle Monae’s Tightrope and Many Moons are already massive internet hits. Fans lucky enough to score Janelle Monae tickets for her Hooligans in Wondaland Tour are still talking about what an amazing performer she is.
Janelle Monae’s concept albums Metropolis and The ArchAndroid detail the saga of a female android who falls in love with a human and is persecuted and disassembled for her beliefs, eventually becoming an android messiah. Whoa. In the world of drugs, violence and bling, a multi-suite, sci-fi, conceptual album with classical, jazz, funk, hip hop, indie and rock influences is a rare find. Pair that with a pint-size performer with a flair for the grandiose and you have a recipe for greatness.
