Monica Allison is an songwriter/artist currently residing in New York City. She recently released her first full length record 'You Can't Take It Back,' a terrific and gratifyingly unique album produced by Cason Cooley in Nashville, TN. Hailing from Ohio, Monica has been playing around town since moving to NYC in 2004. She can frequently be found on the lower east side in a Manhattan favorite, Rockwood Music Hall.
About 'You Can't Take It Back': The addictive melodies and polished arrangements of these piano-driven pop songs will stick with you long after you've turned off your iPod. Small Town is an infectious toe-tapping tune that tells of the ups and downs of life in a big city. The spirited Keys To The Kingdom pairs deliciously honest lyrics with a driving rock beat. Monica takes you into the rough waters of deep friendship with the anthemic ballad Movin' On, and the reflective Fly, Fly Away is a soulful daydream. A wonderful listen from start to finish.
