Monday Michiru, so named to reflect both her Japanese and American-Italian heritages, started her music endeavors studying classical flute then expanded to singing and songwriting. Since her 1991 solo record debut, Monday has consistently released albums on an annual basis both of her solo works as well as a featured guest on various artists' projects internationally. Her musical style runs the gamut from house to jazz to Latin to soul, an indefinable hybrid that is undeniably hers. Her return to Joe's Pub with her band celebrates the release of “Naked Breath 2,” a collection of new works and covers set in an intimate soundscape of just vocals and guitar.
"At a time when music is in a state of flux mostly as a result of the virtual collision of idioms and metaphors, it is a joy to hear the voice of Monday Michiru." -- Latin Jazz
