Singer-songwriter and actress, Kelly Monrow, has won over people’s hearts with her latest debut album Scars of Venus. The 12-track record manifests self-love and freedom. The Texas-native transmits her fierceful energy onto the silenced voices, encouraging them to speak up and stand up for their rights.
Kelly Monrow explains what urged her to create Scars of Venus, “I wrote this album in honor of all the women that couldn’t use their voices out of repression, fear, or shame. I am pursuing music for my ancestors that didn’t get to finish what they started. It is not about the end result, it is the sheer joy of the process and the courage to choose curiosity over fear.”
With songs like “The Woman,” “Jagged Heart,” and “Ain’t Mine,” Monrow proves to be a true creative force. In fact, the Southern Pop/Rock musician considers herself to be a natural-born artist and believes that everybody has that drive in them. Kelly intends to “weave in and out of every lane possible, maybe even hit some curbs and medians along the way. Life is intended to be messy. We call this art.”
While working on Scars of Venus, Monrow was highly influenced by the likes of Shania Twain and Stevie Nicks, and pictures “women drinking wine, toasting, and dancing to most of the music on this album, or a gay/trans person dancing with complete freedom to be themselves. I also would love for younger women to be listening to this in their room hopefully making them feel loved and seen.”
