Monica Mancini

Vocalist Monica Mancini has found balance in her life, and she’s not afraid to say so. “I love my life. I have absolutely nothing to complain about and someone should slap my face if I ever start bitching about anything,” she says with a candor that manages to sound humble.

Mancini credits her music, her family, and her husband of six years, drummer Gregg Field, for her contentment. She also understands that her situation is rare. “I take things more in stride than a lot of my friends do. I think they appreciate that and see that maybe there’s not as much need to get bent out of shape about things,” she says. “Although, I am a very blessed person. I have a great, supportive and loving sensitive husband where a lot of my women friends are just looking for one, period.”
