Monica McIntyre / Press

“Monica McIntyre's cello, vocals, songwriting, and bandleading skills were featured at the debut of Philadelphia's annual Black Women's Arts Festival in 2003. She returned in 2004 in the capacity of event coordinator of the same event. Blusolaz (blues, soul, and jazz combined) is a perfect sampling of what this woman is capable of with or without full band. McIntyre is one part jazz & blues musician, one part balladeer poet, blended with a generous helping of soul topped with 100% pure organic style. Philadelphia is lucky to have this brilliant treasure.”

“'While Monica's sounds are truly and uniquely her own, one cant help but run into the ghosts of Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, and others on the way."”
