Rising Stars: Meet Melanin Monroe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melanin Monroe .

Hi Melanin, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.
I started during the quarantine, the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic. Although a horrible time, it presented an opportunity to make something I love; music. I now had an opportunity to work virtually and use the hours in the day to educate myself on my dream. I began to study engineering while the studios were closed so that I could engineer myself and then the business of music. I was able to build my brand and my music to where it is today; Melanin Monroe.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road, but I take everything as a lesson and a part of the big plan. I have found myself dealing with a broad number of obstacles that remind me that I am human and imperfect like everyone else. Although not the smoothest, I am enjoying the ride.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am most known for my engineering ability, sound and genre, and modeling. I am most proud of my audience. While being an Indie artist for two years, my audience has taken an interest in me, are supportive and responsive; it feels amazing. What sets me apart is my melanated skin and blonde hair, as well as my sound.

How do you define success?
Success is in front of a large audience, on a credible platform, and having the opportunity to reach many people; success is the opportunity to say, “you can be just like me, no matter who you are, what you look like, and what you’re going through right now; you can be just like. ” Success is someone others would want to be so everyone can trust me when I say it.
