After graduating from the Berklee College of Music and New York University on scholarships, Lionheart was the frontwoman for a number of successful bands before going solo. As the lead singer and principal songwriter of the explosive NYC electro-rock band, Zigmat, Lionheart was praised for her vocal agility by Billboard, who called her “the band’s secret weapon.” With Lionheart at the helm, Zigmat landed the band licensing deals, including a national commercial starring Gisele Bundchen, and toured much of Europe, garnering features on national Spanish radio as well as in Vanity Fair and Blender. Following Zigmat, Lionheart later joined the band, Pacha Massive, on Nacional Records who toured frequently, sharing the stage with artists like Morcheeba, Taio Cruz, Ozomatli, Café Tacvba, Los Amigos Invisibles among many others. In January 2016, Monica Lionhart released her second solo album, Missed Connections, produced by Steve Wall (Pearl and the Beard) with Dan Molad (of Lucius) and Ryan Alfred (of Calexico).
