Jovan Landry is the ultimate triple threat. This interdisciplinary artist proclaims herself as the "1/3 Filmmaker, 1/3 Photographer and 1/3 Emcee" based in Chicago. Jovan's mantra is to use her artistic gifts to reflect the true stories of the world, herself and others. Her work has been featured in Chicago Tribune, Bandcamp and Huffington Post. Jovan got her upstart in creating her YouTube channel, LeslieMoniqueTV, where she is most known for documenting her former dreadlock journey, amassing over 6000 subscribers and 1 million video views. With the discovery of her unique voice, she tapped into musical production, film and photography and many other artistic forms. She received her B.A in Film & Video from Columbia College Chicago, and throughout the years worked with a number of musicians, artists, dancers, businesses, organizations and fellow filmmakers. Her lyrical, articulate and high energy performances has landed her over 80-100 showcases and festivals across the U.S and in Berlin, Germany, both as a solo act and with her 5-piece live band, 'The Land'. In 2017, Jovan was awarded the Incubate Grant presented by WeWork Creator Awards, where she will produce her 5th album, 'Synergy', created exclusively by women in the Chicago hip hop scene.
