Monica Allison is an artist out of NYC. She recently released a twelve song record of original tunes recorded in Nashville, TN. You Can't Take It Back is a terrific and gratifyingly unique album. 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. It's available on iTunes and Amazon.com. She can frequently be seen playing out at NYC's Rockwood Music Hall.
