Munroe

Story

MUNROE is the musical project of Kathleen Munroe. Born in Hamilton, ON, Munroe now splits her time between Toronto and Los Angeles both acting (currently on the Amazon series Patriot) and making music. Following her self-titled EP, Munroe released of her debut full-length Oblivion on June 16, 2017. Sonically influenced by spaghetti westerns and 60s film scores, the album sees the artist in new form with a bigger sound and more cinematic collection of tracks as a natural progression from the “gorgeous, melancholy” (Exclaim!) offering on her previous EP.  The new release is “a collection of mature, emotive, spectral songwriting…reminiscent of Vashti Bunyan” (Clash Magazine). Michael Keire (co-producer), Benjamin Munoz, and Anthony Carone (Arkells) were all collaborators on this new record and helped Munroe arrange the final 8 vulnerable and confessional tracks.

“Coupled with Munroe’s haunting piano ballad — Gothic Americana that sits comfortably beside Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy or Julia Holter — the video delivers a powerful moment: rarely do you see a person so naked. Rarely do we get to see the actress practice her pose.”

New Munroe single on Just Music That I Like

“full of longing and desire, a sparse and intoxicating track that recalls the languorously tipsy atmosphere of Mazzy Star with foggy, restrained instrumentation and Kathleen Munroe’s beautifully haunting vocals floating somewhere been dream and the half light. It yearns to be heard again and again.”
