Each of these peices are important milestones not only in her life, but in her career. She discusses everything from her first love who introduced her to rock music, what it was like growing up in a music-less home in Memphis, how she became a the youngest singer in a professional opera company, and the first song she wrote that Sir Elton John heard that gave her the confidence she needed to continue to pursue writing music.

Monique Wyatt is a creative writer and stand up comedian. She weaves us through her upbringing in Chicago and Los Angeles, what it was that got her kicked out of school, and what it felt like when she met her husband. Monique is sharp and hilarious and takes a few hard left turns in her stories, so just when you think you know where the story is going, it ends totally different! Which is what we like about her!
