Ep. 27 Monica Reed (Sting, James Brown, Deep Purple)

iTunes Button (via NiftyButtons.com)

St. Louis, Missouri born session singer Monica Reed has toured and recorded with the likes of Sting, James Brown, and Deep Purple just to name a few. Monica is candid about the excitement and loneliness of being a touring support singer, building her life after leaving the road, and her battle with cancer. We also get into her early days of singing on the sunset strip and watching acts like Jim Morrison and Elton John perform for the first time. This is a wisdom packed conversation you don’t want to miss!



  1. Look at a day job as a means to an end. It doesn’t define you as an artist. 
  2. You can’t let life pull you down too far 
  3. You’ve got to accept help. You’ve got to ask for help. 
  4. The most important thing is that you have to believe in yourself and you can’t give up. 

Thanks for listening!
