ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Artist, Cellist, Singer, Lyricist, Community Activist and Healer; these are a few titles which could be used to describe Monica McIntyre. As a musician Monica weaves a beautiful tapestry of colors and sounds so vivid and unique that one genre simply cannot cover it all. She seamlessly blends: Blues, Soul, Classical, Jazz, Reggae and Middle Eastern sounds with the unique cello techniques of: slapping, plucking and strumming, into an unforgettable musical landscape.

Seeing her perform onstage is an enthralling experience and before you know it you'll be swaying or stomping your feet alongside the mesmerizing sounds of her cello. The meticulous storytelling, metaphor and word play that dominate her lyrics cause her songs to be seen and heard as succinct novellas. Her voice, with it's smoky texture and emotional quality, has left audiences crying, dancing, laughing and testifying.

So who is Monica McIntyre? She is equal parts Jamaican metaphor-laden mother and read-the-dictionary-for-fun father; a perfect writers combination. Originally from Hyattsville, MD, she began her cello career in classical studies; honing her craft through private lessons and orchestral ensembles with the District of Columbia Youth Orchestra (DCYO). After graduating from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, MD, Monica migrated to Philadelphia, PA to study Fashion Design at Drexel University. In 1999 she earned a BA from the Nesbitt College of Design Arts.

Living in the city of Brotherly Love, where she was immersed in: Funk, Soul, R & B, Jazz, and World Music; brought her back to her first love, music. In October 2003 she released her debut album Blusolaz -- a collection of original songs which fused the genres of Blues, Soul and Jazz. Bars of Gold, her first single, was released in August 2005. Monica has been featured at numerous events throughout the world most notably: Soul Sista's Jukejoint (GA) 2005, The 215 Festival (PA) 2005, Sistahood Celebration (Vancouver) 2008, The Philadelphia Fringe Festival (PA) 2008 & 2009, The Black Women's Art Festival (PA) 2009, Sisterspace (MD) 2009, Ladyfest New Orleans (LA) 2010 & 2011, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (LA) 2013, and The French Quarter Fest (LA) 2013. Most recently Monica was a featured artist on the online International music show "Balcony TV".

Her new album 'It Soon Come', produced by John Chelew, features: Marcia McIntyre (violin/vocals), Thea Bashful (vocals), Reggina Thompson (oboe), and Mike Jacobsen (percussion).
