Miss Harmonica is Monica Johansen.
Monica writes the songs, does the vocals, plays the guitars, the synths, the toys, the bass, the drum machines, the kazoo, the tamburine, and sometimes even the drums!
Miss Harmonica is a mixture of electro beats, synthpop,plastic fantastic outfits and good humour. With references like Peaches, M.I.A, Crystal Castles, Matt and Kim and Robyn, there´s no doubt that this is danceable dynamite!
Miss Harmonica is known for her distinct style and incredible outfits and she has collaborated with norwegian fashion designers such as Fam Irvoll and VATLE. With a mix of attitude and self irony, she´s a breath of fresh air on the Norwegian scene.
Miss Harmonica is known as an amazing live artist and has played festivals like by:Larm, Canadian Music Week, Pop Montreal, Norwegian Underwood, NUMUSIC and Slottsfjell.
She released her debut album Champagne, Caviar and Me! in 2009, on her own label BEATME records. She is the first female Norwegian artist, impressively enough, to write all the songs and play all the instruments on the same album. The album is mastered by the famous Nilesh Patel in London who has also worked with artists like Björk, Hot Chip, Daft Punk and Crystal Castles. The miss recently opened for La Roux (UK) in front of a sold out and packed crowd at Rockefeller in Oslo. Now she is releasing her fresh new single "Fashion"! The single was written for the runway show of norwegian fashion designer VATLE, who also makes outfits exclusively for the miss!
