About David J
David J, at only 18 years old, has spent his high school years honing his skills as a country music triple threat. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Justin Bieber, Kane Brown, and Sam Hunt – David’s fresh and cutting edge approach to country pop has already made him into a viral hit maker, and TikTok sensation. Scoring an incredible response to his 2021 lead single “Lost My Heartbreak,” he’s now taken his show on the road for nationwide tour stops in support of artists like Granger Smith, Chase Rice, Drake White, Mitchell Tenpenny, Blake Shelton, and more. Excitedly, his singles “Stay” and “Lost My Heartbreak” have officially been spinning on Sirius XM’s “The Highway” since they were added in early 2022. Under his deal with Grey Area Music, David J will be releasing his six-track debut EP in 2022 – but this is likely just the beginning. David’s drive to chase the dream and inspire others to do so is the foundation for his music. Match that with raw talent, and dedication to his craft and he is a country music force to be reckoned with.

Continuing her father’s musical legacy​, St. Paul, Minnesota-native, Monique Smaz writes and performs as a vocalist, guitarist, pianist, drummer and bassist. Beginning with private vocal lessons at age five, Monique developed a love for singing with the piano, which led to private piano lessons at age six. Shortly after, Monique joined the St. Paul School of Rock at age seven where she continued vocal and piano lessons, eventually adding in guitar, bass, and drum lessons by the age of 11. Monique has always had a passion for music and has high hopes and aspirations to build a life allowing her to continue playing and performing forever.

After leaving The School of Rock at age 16, Monique took her love of performing in bands to new depths as she now primarily performs as a solo acoustic act. Monique loves to write her own music as well as cover some of the greats. Monique’s biggest inspiration has and always will be her father, but she continues to be influenced by a wide variety of other artists. Monique uses artists such as Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, and Johnny Cash to inspire her original music. Monique’s roots run deep in country/rock/soul, which shines through in her original music. Her covers include music of all genres and decades.
