      Guest: Monica Rizzo With a perspective equally influenced by her Texas roots and her Cape Cod home, singer-songwriter Monica Rizzio has emerged as one of the finest talents in the east coast music scene. After a decade with Tripping Lily, a folk acoustic-pop band to which shredded fiddle and vocals, she’s now embarked on a solo career that draws on her East Texas roots for an Americana-tinged flavor of folk. Releasing her second full-length album in the fall of 2019, Monica’s songs are often autobiographical yet delivered through a fictional approach –whether using a trademark sense of humor or with such striking honesty that the pain in her voice is tangible. Her debut album, aptly named Washashore Cowgirl, is a testament to the relationships she has forged with many artists over the years, featuring Raul Malo (The Mavericks), Mark Erelli, Sierra Hull, Abbie Gardner & Molly Venter (Red Molly), Tim Chaisson (The East Pointers), Brittany Haas (Hawktail), and Laney Jones.

      Matt Andersen:

      Unbridled joy springs eternal from Halfway Home by Morning. Recorded live off the floor in Nashville, Tennessee, celebrated songwriter Matt Andersen’s tenth album collects all the essential elements for a down-home ramble and shoots them through with enough electrifying energy to drive the rock ‘n’ roll faithful to simmer, shimmy, and shake. Over its lucky 13 tracks, he explores every facet of his sound—sweat-soaked soul, incendiary rhythm and blues, heartbroken folk, and gritty Americana—and binds them together with palpable heart, as the band leaves everything they’ve got on the sweet old hardwood of the Southern Ground studio, in the same spot that legends like Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Lee Lewis turned up the volume ‘til it couldn’t go up anymore. Along with the infiltrating buzz of Music City putting its stamp on the record, the studio itself became like a second home for Matt and the band. He and bassist Mike Farrington would routinely kick back with a drink and just listen to the horn section reminisce about the players they’d shared the stage with, and the kitchen took on its typical all-important role as war room, the spot where meals brought the whole crew together to plot next steps. Sometimes it’s tension that shapes a record. But what Halfway Home by Morning offers is soul rejuvenation, looking outward at the anxious state of the world and offering a helping hand, or searching inward to clarify what really matters. And to make a record like that, with warmth and verve, you need to keep your comrades close and feelin’ right. “There really is nothing like listening back in the studio and everybody has the same smile on their face over what we’re hearing,” Matt says. “You can’t fake the vibe of musicians playing together, responding to the choices others are making in that moment.”
