Monica Ortiz: Singer, Songwriter, and Second Album Release.
I’ve worked at the same company for awhile now and I’ve had the privilege of meeting a lot of really great people over the years. One of these individuals was a man named Andrew Dao. I got to know Andrew better over the week that he was in the office and kept in touch once he went remote. We recently reconnected via Facebook messenger and I discovered through our conversations that his mother was an amazing singer, I just had no idea how talented she really was.
I was especially excited to do this interview as I grew up listening to some of the bands that had their hand in helping create his mom’s album, like Family Force 5! I present to you my interview with Andrew’s mother, Monica Ortiz, on her music and second album release entitled, “Journey Home”.
Tell me a little bit about yourself and what got you started in music.
Before we get into your current project, what was your experience with creating your first album and what inspired you to create it?
I'm told your new album features music and vocals from multiple Grammy and GMA nominated/winning artists. Can you tell me who they are and how you got connected with them?
Check out the artists she’s been working with:
What has the process been like bringing this album to life?

When does your new album officially release and will you be playing any upcoming shows to promote it?
If you’d like to learn more about Monica Ortiz and her music, I’ll leave a link to her website and other social links below, as well as a teaser video she has on her Instagram. Go and follow her! I’d like to thank Monica for taking the time to do this interview and her son, Andrew Dao. I wish both of them the best and I can’t wait to hear the new album!
