Short bio

Monagi is the band of songwriter and producer Jess Jacob. Blending spare indie pop, filmic textures and

edgy guitar melodies with velvety backing vocals to set the melancholic tone throughout his productions. During

the past decades Jess was mainly the guitarist for bands such as Tout Va Bien, Piquet and Ganashake.

After his first couple of single releases in 2022 his vision as a songwriter and producer became clear with

the coming of his first album. ’Tout ce temps’, his 7-track-long debut, was featured in MAZE FR as one of

the revelations of October 2023. Shortly thereafter he was fortunate to play the support show of

Zimmerman in Café Café Hasselt. 

 

Monagi is Jess Jacob, Eden De Wit (The Shadow Machine), Robbe Malschaert (Isaac Roux), Laurens Mannaerts (Patches), Maarten Schelkens and Jeroen Godon.

Notable mentions

 

November 2nd 2023 Monagi played the support show of Zimmerman at Café Café Hasselt.

This was an intimate duo performance created for future support shows and small settings. 

 

Monagi's first EP "Tout ce temps" got featured in Maze.fr's "Musique en bref" 

"Dès les premières notes de Tout ce temps, il est évident que nous sommes à l’aube d’une expérience musicale singulière."

 

"La signature vocale du chanteur, si distinctive, se mêle avec audace aux tonalités vibrantes de piano et de guitare. On est rapidement emporté par cette déferlante musicale où la mélancolie se mêle à l’énergie, faisant de cet EP une sortie à ne pas manquer cette année."

Coups de cœur : Tout ce temps, Danse dorée.
