Ricki Monique

Ricki Monique is a Minnesota-based musician, organizer, and creative. As co-founder of Tangible Collective, her practice centers on improving the Black Creative experience in MN. She uses art as a tool for expression and release. Finding beauty in the process, Ricki believes that creative expression can be used to heal, expose, and provide space for her community -- specifically Black Women.

Born writer and storyteller, Ricki wrote poetry, short stories, and songs for as long as she can remember. She finally shared this gift in 2018 with the drop of her first song on SoundCloud, "Always Knew," featuring Thomasina Petrus -- local legend actress, jazz singer, and playwright. The following year, Ricki began making music with @kwey_, which led to the drop of her two latest works, "No Time" (Freestyle) and "Garden of Better," both on all streaming platforms.

Outside of music, Ricki Monique hosts events, draws, creative directs, plus whatever else she feels will best get her creative ideas out. Using art as a way to evolve and heal, the art form Ricki uses has -- and always will -- vary. The goal is to get the emotion out and hopefully create something that someone can feel. Stream her music on all streaming platforms!
