"Deeply seductive vocals"

Danaë Vlasse, Award winning composer and recording artist


"Monika Ryan is a force to be reckoned with.  In "Now", her latest collection of original songs, she explores a broad palette of emotions that go from the joy of love, to the pride of identity, to the vulnerability of more somber moments.

She's joined by an all-star crew of outstanding musicians that can take the spotlight with solos sweet and fierce, or build atmospheric mantras over which Ms. Ryan allures listeners with her compelling performances.

An eclectic album despite its reduced instrumentation, that will surely attract fans of jazz, blues, folk, pop, and anyone who can appreciate a good song with a soulful delivery"

-Emilio D. Miler, Award Winning Producer, Latin Grammy Winner

"Monika Ryan is a highly appealing singer with a strong voice, a flexible style, and sensitivity to the lyrics that she interprets. A professional from the age of 15, she was a fixture in New York clubs by the time she was 18. Since 2000 she has recorded a series of fine recordings as a leader. 2016 found her particularly busy, recording several CDs including 'Merry,' 'Sketches,' and 'Fly.' In 2017, Monika released 'Windmills' to both critical and fan acclaim. 'Now' is Monika's 9th independently produced full length release."

"A powerfully moving and soulful spiritual with a clear political purpose: this might as well be the new anthem for Standing Rock, and all the reservations and parks being desecrated by developers!"
