Life Is Awesome (LIA) is your guide to music and art in Southern California. Our mission is to provide an intimate look at the artists and their contributions to the world.  Since 2010, we have interviewed over 200 artists of all genres.  We invite high-profile, Grammy Award-winning artists as well as newcomers to share their stories.

Please note: I am no longer interviewing artists, but please enjoy the 200+ interviews and articles featured throughout these pages.  -Monica Harris
