MONICA PASQUAL plus Spark & Whisper
You do not listen to Monica Pasqual's songs lightly. They stir you, they stab you, they create images of Spain and pain and joy and mountains and the Mediterranean and most importantly, of the contours of the human heart. Pasqual is best known as the soaring voice, crystal clear piano and modulated accordion in the band Blame Sally but her career stretches far beyond Blame Sally in both time and range. She has had a prolific career making music and scoring films since the mid-90s, blending her background in classical piano with her precisely controlled voice and sharply defined words. Of mixed American and Spanish heritage, she can mesmerize you in both languages. She knows how to craft lyrics that can simultaneously break your heart and sink permanently into your mind.
Her songs take you on an adventure though a musical Mediterranean landscape of memories, lost childhood and sun splashed, fading villages. They are often drawn from and evoke the cobblestone lanes and yellow plaster walls of her family's village in the Mediterranean island of Majorca. Some call her solo music acoustic international folk while others call it dreamy pop. Some call it the soundtrack of a life consciously lived.
She has won 6 Independent Music Awards and 6 Emmy Awards.
