Equally at home sight-reading or playing parts by ear, Michael’s exceptional work can be heard on television (e.g The Chris Isaak Show, Beggars & Choosers, The Eds), in films (e.g. The War For Baby Jessica, Song From the Heart) and jingles (e.g. McDonald’s, Toyo Tires, Killian’s Irish Red) and on many CDs, including albums by k.d. lang, Raffi, The Rankin Sisters, The Irish Rovers, Powder Blues, Shari Ulrich, Roy Forbes, Connie Kaldor, Lisa Brokop, Charlotte Diamond and Trooper.
“…a cross between Floyd Cramer and Thelonius Monk.”

Monique Creber is an experienced and versatile session vocalist with a 3 _-octave range who has recorded on a wide variety of projects ranging from jingles, T.V. themes and PSAs to sporting events, karaoke tracks and numerous CDs. Equally proficient at sight-reading or learning parts by ear, Monique works in several genres - pop, jazz, rock, folk, country, musical theatre, classical - and can sing convincingly in a variety of languages besides English, including French, Portuguese, Slovenian and Spanish. Recent recording projects include a jingle for Mark’s Work Wearhouse, a theme song for The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, a compilation CD for The Magic of Christmas concert series, tracks for the Calgary Stampede Grandstand Show and the theme song for a TV animation series entitled Flakes. Though she can achieve many different vocal qualities and sounds, Monique’s voice is most often likened to that of the late great Karen Carpenter.
“I’d love to superimpose two songs sung by you and Karen Carpenter - it’s remarkable how close the resemblance is…It’s not that you copy her style so much as it’s the gift you have in the tone of your voice.” (Rick Cluff - Host of CBC Radio’s The Early Edition)
