“There’s no denying Yates’ piercing wit and unflinching commitment to telling the truth as she sees it,” writes Gary Peterson in the San Jose Mercury News. “From ‘I Don’t Want to Have a Baby,’ to ‘Shut Yer Face,’ to ‘Foreign Policy Folk Song,’ you don’t have to wonder what she’s thinking.”
In the years since those initial performances, Yates has supported and performed with musicians of many genres, as well as stand-up comics. She's toured the U.S. from coast to coast and is currently based in Colorado, where she can regularly be found folking faces around the Front Range and generally getting up to no good. Although she's still in the beginning stages of Eventual Ukulele Superstardom, she is sure that soon she will be able to drop the "Eventual" and just move on to total world domination.
Currently she writes and performs with the band Twin Flame Medicine (TFM), whose sound has been defined as sweet nectar soul juice. Mona leads TFM with her unforgettable presence and is complimented by two technically advanced musicians, Swirl and Galaxy Bill. Together they create a warm atmosphere of enjoyment and reflection. TFM has had the privilege of playing festivals such as ARISE, Underground Music Showcase, Tribal Vision, Shamanic Boom, and Sisterwinds. Their first full-length album is set to release in Spring of 2018.Formerly, Mona wrote and performed in the band Flowers Of Mass Production, who received notable praise for their debut EP, Love Under The Sun. This album has been frequently featured on Colorado Public Radio’s OpenAir since 2015.
Aside from creating music, Mona is the founder and executive director of a local community media organization called FreeMusicForFreePeople (FM4FP). FM4FP has hosted supportive and creative events such as open mics, community showcases and fundraisers.Currently FM4FP provides media exposure to musicians, activists, community leaders and like-minded organizations.

Beyond Mona’s community efforts through FM4FP, she has been involved with many local projects and currently co-organizes for one of Denver’s music industry meet-ups called Balanced Breakfast (BB). BB is an international networking organization that strives to foster community in local and national music scenes.
Mona is a Partner Artist and Lead Program Coordinator at Youth On Record (YOR), a nationally recognised non-profit organization that brings artistic opportunity to underserved youth. Mona teaches Music Fundamentals to Denver high school students along with her involvement in YOR’s girls club FEMpowered.
