Discovery: Monica Riskey

Brooklyn-based Monica Riskey has a postcard for us from snow-bound New York City.

New track Hot Cocoa was written as Monica was housebound by the unprecedented cold weather hitting the States at the moment. It’s a song of longing, missing a loved one and being willing to risk the conditions to see them.

Monica’s voice and style has an easy charm and Hot Cocoa is a enjoyable listen. She’s built a great track out of what wouldn’t usually be seen as an inspiring situation. Check out Hot Cocoa below.
