ABOUT

With his sophisticated mix of, classic soul, intricate jazz, and cutting edge hip hop, Chicago’s Beau Monroe is one of the most promising voices in his home city. His ability to build powerful emotional connections with his generation has put him in position to emerge onto the national scene.

Beau refers to his distinctive vocal style as Japhillydoohop (Juh-phillee-doo-hop), which references key influences on his sound including jazz, Philly soul, doo-wop, and hip-hop. Growing up surrounded by Chicago’s rich musical heritage, Beau’s uncanny ability to turn classic stylings into something new and inspiring would come to define him as he rose through the ranks of his local scene. What truly separates Beau from his peers, however, is the raw passion he brings to every performance.

Whether it is a deep meditation on romance, an unapologetic plea for social justice, or a quiet ode to self love and acceptance, Beau’s sincerity and love for his fellow man shines through on every song. Music isn’t just a profession for him. Instead, it is a way to bridge gaps between cultures and encourage safe spaces where listeners are free to be themselves. Beau is a true original, and with his ambition and dedication, there is no limit to what he might accomplish.
