Monique Mizrahi’s “Out Comes Woman”

With her sweet, smoky voice, she can be accused of musical entrapment.

“Come out and I will not love you any less!” Monique Mezrahi hums sensationally in her new album, Out Comes Woman.

Mezrahi is Honeybird(a singer-songwriter who plays charango, bass guitar, piano, berimbau, and percussion). Growing up in a home that did not open up about serious topics, Mezrahifound her refuge in music when she started playing piano at the age of 3.

“Music is my way of expressing myself. I was playing the bass guitar by the age of 13 and I would sneak out at night to watch 120 minutes of MTV!”

It was when Mezrahimoved to Italy that she dove heavily into music, bringing out all her old notebooks that she scribbled in duringher early years, and started connecting deep within herself.

Mezrahihas songs in different languages for the purpose of avoiding any obstacle between her lyrics and her audience.

“I want to connect with people. I want them to relate. I want to share with them every emotion that runs through my body and help each travel out so powerfully spreading more positive energy in this world,” she declares.

The first song Mezrahishared with the world was “Shaka Zulu”, whichis about a warrior from South Africa. Now, her fifth and latest album “Out comes woman”was released on May 14 in New York, as she performed her “bi-mizvah” on stage with her mother, leading Mezrahi to delivera powerful and emotional performance.

Mezrahihas always struggled to accepther sexual orientation until she finally embraced her bisexuality through talking about it and highlighting her experience through song lyrics. She wrote down her fears, sang out her struggles, and composed her self-acceptance, which helps her live in more familiarity with her once so-called “issue.

”Mezrahistill gets afraid sometimes to open up, but she is much more comfortable with and finds opportunity in situations that cause tense and undesired emotions. “I want to empower others to go for it, to see colors in life, and to keep going no matter what obstacles get thrown in [their]way. Freely explore, and share your honesty in your words.”
