The frontmen of London based group Monroe have more than just music in common…
They’re both islanders. Kelly Schembri hails from Malta, while Katie (KJ) Jones was born in the Isle of Wight.
Their latest single, Can’t Divide Us, will present their new path taken with their edgy dance act, and will soon be hitting the airwaves. The duo have joined forces with producer and songwriter Warren Meyers of Soul Shaker & The AudioFreaks to give birth to the Mob Culture and Monroe fusion. Both ladies headed to London to pursue their musical careers and founded Monroe back in 2009.
They’ve opened the London New Year’s Day Parade to a global television audience of 280 million and a street crowd of 500,000. They were also invited to BBC Radio London for an interview with Eddie Nestor, followed by a rendition of their work on air. Their first single, Go Home, debuted on BBC Introducing and on Malta’s Vibe FM and Bay Radio. Their performance at the parade was followed by an appearance at the Malta Music Awards alongside artists which included Peter Andre. They’ve also been on several Maltese TV shows and radio stations. The girls have opened for artists such as The Noisettes and Billy Ocean and have also performed at the Isle of Wight Festival and the Limelight Film Awards.
Monroe are brand ambassadors for Malta Connect and will be performing at ‘The All White Party’ at The Villa this Friday 26th June.
