“Prado’s sound is unapologetically dynamic, which can be best illustrated after examining her portfolio of musical influences and eclectic taste…With pitch bends and tones that appear in between notes, Prado pulls off the unlikely pairing of R&B with the dreamy resonance of Mac Demarco, fiercely testing the bounds of genres. With an insightful ear, Prado has successfully reformulated some of the best moments of today’s music in her own way. Her lyrics remain a true reflection of her strongest personality traits – vulnerable and fearless.” – Red Bull
“Captivatingly sweet with an edge of sardonic humor, Prado’s power lies in her dynamic musical instincts, savvy songwriting skills, and unwavering ‘do as I will’ energy that will inspire your next Instagram caption. She’s badass, she’s outspoken and, with STRIP, she’s ready to take down anyone in her way.” – ELEVATOR
Pop luminary Prado, AKA Prado Monroe, will turn on a dime from sweet to sadistic before doubling back all over again. Born in Vancouver, Canada on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, Prado is densely committed to the Black and Indigenous communities that raised her.
Circa 2016, the now 22-year-old industry titan was lending pen to various artists under the moniker of ‘AlienKanye’; the contagious melodies behind various NY-based male rappers. Further unearthing her love and disposition to wordplay and pop music, Prado learned to lead without fear, using her unique voice and no-bullshit delivery all for herself.
In late 2020, Prado broke silence with LA-based tmwrk Records and her release of “STRIP” – a dreamy 2-pack, alt-pop EP featuring singles “STEPHEN” and “DRIP”. Soon following the much anticipated debut, the singer-producer teamed up with indie Canadian label Specials Worldwide artists ZDBT and SMP for a genre-busting, raucous electro single plus video titled “ELASTIC” in February 2021. The Hi-NRG record spawned remixes from NYC/Berlin’s prolific producer MoMA Ready as well as Montréal/NYC’s reigning new perreo-pop princess, Isabella Lovestory.
Continuing the evermore momentum of releases, Prado gave us “MEN IN BLACK” and “GUCCI STORE”, further teasing her debut self-titled EP, “Prado Monroe”. The exciting 6-track oeuvre is set for a June 18th, 2021 delivery via tmwrk Records.
