Raul Malo
Raul Malo
Malo is the incomparable front-man of the genre-defying band The Mavericks and the sole writer of many of their songs. From their earliest shows playing the punk clubs on Miami Beach nearly three decades ago, these musical comrades have had a skill for getting people to groove. Drawing on a mix of classic country, cow-punk and standards, they bring to the world rhythmic fervor and Latin machismo, along with Malo’s lush baritone. Their raucous sound broke ground with hits like “Here Comes the Rain,” “Crying Shame” and “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.” After many years, multiple gold and platinum albums, world tours, breakups and reformations, The Mavericks’ critically-acclaimed In Time (2013) re-introduced music lovers to their exquisite melting pot of music. “Known for the risky marriage of island rhythms, Latin horn riffs and traditional country -- the unique sonic references of first-generation Cuban immigrants tethered to dyed-in-the-wool Americana -- Malo and his seven musicians push those bonds further into a sound that is generally buoyantly delightful,” praises Billboard. With the 2015 release of Mono (The Valory Music Co.), The Mavericks find themselves making the most relevant music of their career and sharing it across the globe on their Mono Mundo Tour. Malo’s songwriting throughout builds on the compositional craftsmanship of early-twentieth-century elegance yet demonstrates his skill for penning progressive and timeless songs. “The flawless dynamics of the band remain in sync with the songs and Malo’s emotional, explosive vocals…” touts Vintage Guitar while NPR ponders, “Their weapons are consummate skill, the clarion charisma of singer Raul Malo, and the wisdom to know that fun is what wins in the end.”
Monica Rizzio
Monica Rizzio
No stranger to the east coast music scene, Texas-bred and Cape Cod washashore, Monica Rizzio is emerging as one of the finest singer songwriters that call New England home. For over 10 years she played fiddle and sang with Tripping Lily, a folk acoustic pop band, who toured up and down the east coast. In 2012, Monica left the band to rejuvenate her passion for music and began writing to help cope with the loss of the band and love. At FreshGrass, the following year, while perusing the vendors Rizzio found a 1956 Martin 0-18 guitar that would change her life and her song. She calls it the “moment I found Jesus again.” Drawing on her East Texas roots, Monica and her Martin, brought back the the little girl who loved to barrel race on her horse Bo, and she found her outlaw country sound deep within the folk world. Her debut album, aptly named, Washashore Cowgirl, is completely autobiographical, often times delivered in a fictional approach, sometimes with humor, and sometimes so strikingly honest you can feel the pain in her voice. The album is a testament to the relationships she has forged with many artists over the years and features Mark Erelli, Sierra Hull, Abbie Gardner & Molly Venter of Red Molly, G. Love, Tim Chaisson, Brittany Haas, and Laney Jones. Last December, Monica shared the stage with Tom Rush and Red Molly at his annual show at Symphony Hall in Boston and has supported Dianna Krall, Slaid Cleaves, and Joan Osborne.
