Monica started it all in 2005, and it's
her solo project. She's been playing
a lot both in Norway and abroad, and
released her debut album "Champagene, Caviar and Me! in March 2009.
what's your message?
have fun and don't take yourself too seriously
do you play shows and how do they look like?
yeah! There's a lot of dancing, smiling, toys, colours and things that glow in the dark. And always a lot of audience at stage, dancing!
what was the craziest show you've ever played ?
We played a festival in Norway last weekend in the middle of the night and Monica invited everyone up on stage - and 60-70 people came.. It was crowdy, crazy and very funny!
what was the worst and why?
A gig that was arranged by an independent record store in Oslo. A lot of "we-think-we-are-cool" rock musicians and their friends showed up with armed crossed and stone faces. They didn't barely clap after the songs..
what are your future plans?
Touring and writing songs for my next album.
are you going for the big deal or are you more the d.i.y. type?
D.I.Y! But I still want to work with professional people when it comes to booking and and promotion. I did everything myself on the first album (releasing, playing, writing, booking and promo), and in the end I want as many people as possible to hear my music, but I still want to control my own career.
