What to Expect
You can expect an awesome praise and worship experience from Monae Miller. She is a gospel guitarist/singer/songwriter with lyrics that captivate and a voice soothing to the soul.
Monae Miller an Austin native gospel recording artist, songwriter, and music producer. In 2009, she released her debut EP with title track “I’m On My Way,” which was the very first song she ever wrote. Monae has quite a catalogue of published and unpublished music spanning all genres. She specializes in curating original gospel music, focusing on the message and delivery of lyrics.
After numerous collaborations between other music producers and songwriters she decided to act on her vision to present a songwriter’s showcase called Show & Tell Songwriter Showcase which debuted in August 2017 at The Prophet Bar, a local live music venue in Dallas, TX. She also continues to regularly release her own original gospel music to all major digital music stores.
Monae’s work ethic and love of music has allowed her to create unique opportunities for musical artists to share their work with the world. Monae moved back to her hometown of Austin, TX recently only to start an event series entitled Gospel Vibes, paying homage to her past event series founded by her and her husband titled The Gospel Jam in Dallas, TX. Both events serve the gospel music community by creating a platform for gospel artists outside of the church walls, setting up shop in restaurants, clubs, bars, coffee shops, event centers, and anywhere they feel led. To preview the type of artists featured at Gospel Vibes, follow the Spotify playlist titled Gospel Vibes with Monae Miller.
Her musical inspirations are artists such as Nina Simone, Jill Scott, Tweet, India Arie, and Erykah Badu. She will always be devoted to the smooth R&B sounds of the 90’s. With classical piano training and a science degree, Monae Miller is well rounded when it comes to her musical expression. She became a worship leader at a small church in Dallas where she continued to hone her musical talents while drawing closer to the Lord. Health issues over a period of several years sidelined her from music but after healing and restoration she used her testimony to write her second EP titled #ForeverAlive released in December 2016.
