Monica Stephenson is more than a composer and vocalist. She is a poet with an extraordinary gift for capturing the words to tell stories from the hearts of those around her. She just so happens to have the musical talent to give these tales new life, integrating variation of style, harmony, instrumentation, and a vocal powerhouse into her work. Monica's performance and composition experience as well as her professional training provide a framework for her creativity, enabling her to infuse passion and brilliance into each new project with incredible energy and professionalism.

Monica brings a vibrant personality to the stage. Her comical timing and wit immediately draw in audiences, making her music sparkle and keeping fans glued to their seats. She has a fine-tuned radar for what works for her audiences, and she delivers incredible performances again and again.

Composer, singer, and comedian, Monica Stephenson is an artist you'll find hard to forget and easy to love.

It’s 1953 in a homogenous American suburb. At the end of a cul-de-sac, three housewives lead quiet lives of childcare, housework, and bridge on Fridays. When a new neighbor, a former factory worker during the war, joins their clique, the ladies of Tyndale Place are introduced to a new way of life— one they never knew they wanted.
