Janelle Monae: A Love Story.

Janelle Monae is a singer,songwriter,dancer and all around lead thinker in the resistance of uniformity. With the infusion of jazz, r&b, acoustic, rock, hip hop, and all around music freedom, she has created beautifully arranged music with tear-invoking vocal honesty and alien beats which come together to create worlds only dreamed of. In order to truly experience this out-of-world experience you must give her a listen as i did so many years ago.

When i first heard Janelle Monae a few years ago, it was on a compilation cd of upcoming indie artists. I cannot remember the name of this cd but the one thing i do remember was hearing¬† a song by the name of ‘Sincerely,Jane’ and just feeling this chill. That familiar chill when you are listening to new music and you know you have just discovered something beautiful.¬† Of course the logical next step was to go listen to as much Janelle Monae as i could over the next month or so and that i did. Not only did i not get tired of hearing the same album over and over again but i continued to fall in love with her music with each diverse and unexpected note.
