Monster Monster Biography

Monster Monster began in the most unlikely of situations; an argument in a bar. Songwriter Mick Stuart (who can't sing for nuts) was looking for a singer. Whilst out with friends in Dublin's Stags Head, Mick got into a heated discussion with singer-songwriter Ríona Sally Hartman as to whether or not singer-songwriters could do a good job with other people's songs. With every pint the debate got more heated until a challenge was set and the pair agreed to meet the following day to put their arguments to the test.

Monster Monster began in the most unlikely of situations; an argument in a bar. Songwriter Mick Stuart (who can't sing for nuts) was looking for a singer. Whilst out with friends in Dublin's Stags Head, Mick got into a heated discussion with singer-songwriter Ríona Sally Hartman as to whether or not singer-songwriters could do a good job with other people's songs. With every pint the debate got more heated until a challenge was set and the pair agreed to meet the following day to put their arguments to the test. Ríona won! 

Mick and Ríona went on to collaborate on a number of projects leading to their latest and boldest, Monster Monster, an alternative pop act with songwriting at the heart. Songs by Mick are developed and made her own by Ríona. Exploring the range between love and hate, they create one voice from contrasting perspectives. Mick writes with one thing in mind, Ríona sings with another. Mick suggests left, Ríona swings right. Mick listens to Massive Attack, Emilie Sandé and The Beatles. Ríona listens to Janelle Monae, The Eurythmics and FKA Twigs. Then they get together, compare notes and still argue over lyrics.
