Singer/songwriter Jen Hirsh – who goes by the moniker, MONOGEM – has just released a new track, “Shade”, a personal anthem that she says, “reminds me to stop hiding my truths, even if they aren’t pretty.”
The Los Angeles resident has been building considerable buzz around her career through shows at Soho House Hollywood & Malibu, Bootleg Theater and The Echo. She then joined Anima! on her first national tour in the summer of 2017.
So where does the name MONOGEM come from? In astrology, a Monogem Ring is a leftover glow from exploded supernova stars. Coincidentally, one of the largest monogem rings in the universe is located near the Gemini and Cancer constellations. Born in late June, Jen is on the cusp of Gemini-Cancer, and thus MONOGEM was born.
Like her moniker, MONOGEM is a brightly shining talent in a sea of samey pop music. She plays a headline show at It’s A School Night in LA on Sunday 26 November.
