Sista Monica Parker, internationally known as “The Lioness of the Blues,” croons, testifies, and roars audiences through the thrill and the pain of loving dangerously in her newly released CD, “Living in the Danger Zone.” With elements of her roots in R&B and gospel, this contemporary blues album has reviewers singing praises and live audiences clasping their hearts, clapping their hands, singing along, and getting up to dance. Sista Monica Parker is a blues singer, writer and performer who moves audiences with her heartfelt lyrics and soul-touching sounds that percolate from her American roots in R&B and gospel. Produced and recorded by Parker “Living in the Danger Zone” is her eleventh album.
Blues Blast Magazine reviewer Steve Jones reports that the album is charged with “old-school female blues, R&B and gospel vocals with a big, fresh and clean sound.”
Sista Monica’s band is composed of veteran sidemen: Danny Sandoval on tenor sax, Don Caruth playing funky blues guitar, Leon Joyce Jr. banging the drums, Artis Joyce ‘AJ’ on bass, musical director Danny ‘B’ Beconcini playing his piano and Hammond B3, and new addition Bill Vallaire on rockin’ guitar.
Sista Monica is a 2012 Blues Music Award (BMA) nominee for “Best Soul Blues Female Artist of the Year.”
