    I've listened a lot to Bourbon Princess this fall. It's the kind of music that makes the bicycle trips enjoyable even if the weather is cold and gloomy. Thanks for that!

Sobre mim


Bassist, vocalist, glass blower, and painter. Projects/bands include Alien Knife Fight, A.K.A.C.O.D., Bourbon Princess.
2-string slide bass, fretless bass, tenor dobro, baritone guitar, percussion, etc.

Vocalist/songwriter/bassist Monique Ortiz is known as the front woman of the Austin Gothic Blues duo Alien Knife Fight, and Boston trio A.K.A.C.O.D. (a collaboration with Morphine saxophonist Dana Colley and Binary System drummer Larry Dersch).

A fine art graduate of Pennsylvania College Of Art as well as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist since childhood, Monique Ortiz has developed her own sound, influenced by bands such as Wire, Can, Japan,Talk Talk, and Morphine. In 1996 she relocated to the Boston area from her hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania and began playing numerous solo performances (just vocals and fretless bass) at parties and small venues. In 1997 she formed Bourbon Princess, performing often as a duo with a drummer, and sometimes as a trio with the addition of a cellist. Her unconventional approach to the fretless bass and 2-string slide bass, along with her powerful and gritty vocal delivery and bleak lyrical content draw comparisons to Nick Cave, Patti Smith, and Iggy Pop. Having grown up listening to everything from Bauhaus to Nina Simone, Monique sometimes refers to her sound as "...a sort of Gothic Blues".

Over the past ten years Monique has written, arranged, and produced three full-length Bourbon Princess records, 2 solo LPs, and has performed with a band (whose lineup includes original Morphine drummer Jerome Deupree, saxophonist and leader of Grammy-nominated jazz big band Either/Orchestra Russ Gershon and guitarist/pianist Jim Moran). She has recorded and performed as a backing vocalist for Orchestra Morphine, Twinemen, and The Collisions. Her songs have appeared in MTV's "Real World", and on various compilations, such as Respond 2 (along with Ani Defranco, Dolly Parton, and Aimee Man), and Project Bread's "Get In Here And Eat"

"When The Pigeon Flies", Monique's most recent release, is a compilation of live performances from December 2009 into January of 2010. Guest musicians include Morphine saxophonist and A.K.A.C.O.D. band mate Dana Colley, and Mission Of Burma guitarist Roger Miller.

Currently Monique is wrapping up work on the debut Alien Knife Fight record with her partner and band mate Michael Howard. The two plan on touring this fall, backed by multi instrumentalist John Aymong.
