Regnault Monday is a songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. In recent years he decided that he wanted to shed some of his intellectual light onto his peers that seem to be caught up in songs about nothing but violence and corruption. If you enjoy lyrical artistry, he is a must listen.
Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?
I spent my early years south of Atlanta in Riverdale, Georgia. I grew up In Hampton, Georgia. I always memorized verses from Biggie, Tupac, 50 Cent, Andre 3000, and other artist, then I would recite them on the bus. After I saw the reaction from the performances, I was curious to see the reaction to my own wordplay. In school, I took poetry and writing serious early on. My third grade teacher was the first to praise me for my writing. This propelled me to be more creative in my writing. As I got older, I was invited to a few studios and laid down some records. Drowzzy Beats had a studio in his closet. Doda1k had a studio set up in his garage. These were the places that I learned studio etiquette and decided to be a recording artist.
Exposed Vocals: Since everyone was a start-up once, can you give any smaller or local bands or artists looking to get gigs and airplay some tips?
The most important thing is to be assertive. Being unknown is exactly that, a person doesn’t know you. Make steps to build relationships with stations, media outlets, and venues.
Exposed Vocals: Do you ever make mistakes during performances? How do you handle that?
I feel that there are no mistakes in art. Any straying away from rehearsal makes the performance organic and adds to the experience. I always keep the show rolling.
Exposed Vocals: Do you tour? Anything interesting happen on tour that you think our readers would enjoy hearing about?
My first tour is scheduled for summer 2018. I am excited to announce that I have a few dates scheduled in Tampa, Florida with The Verce.
Exposed Vocals: Any planned studio upgrades? What are you working with now?
Twenty96 Studios has stayed ahead of the game in all aspects of technology and aesthetics. The only improvement I can think of is putting a mirror in the booth so I can look my competition in the face while I lay down records.
Exposed Vocals: How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?
The best way to promote music is to stay personal. I make sure to stay connected with my followers and fans. My fans have become part of my family, and the stronger the family, the stronger the movement. #HiHope
Exposed Vocals: If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?
I would perform in Atlanta with Michael Jackson. My special guests would be Sade and Andre 3000. I would want to bring the best performer to my city and give all ages a show that they would think back to for the rest of their lives.
Exposed Vocals: So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?
The next project I will be releasing is a true mixtape. Today the title is “No Place Like Fear”, but it may change as we close in on completing it. I’m bringing back the classic mixtape format by getting on classic old school beats as well as some recent hits.
Exposed Vocals: If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?
If I wasn’t making music, I would be in graduate school pursuing a career in accounting.
Exposed Vocals: What should fans look forward to in the next year or so?
Wait official music video will be my first release of the year. 2018 I am releasing a flurry of singles and will be releasing a mixtape in March. As the year comes to a close I will be releasing “Thank God It’s Monday EP”
