Release: electronic folk-pop singer-songwriter, Monica Lionheart, releases her new single, “Strangers,” from her upcoming second solo album, Missed Connections. This album is the follow up to Lionheart’s successful Spanish/English album, Indian Summer, released on the Latin Alternative label, Nacional Records in 2012.
Produced by Steve Wall (Pearl and the Beard) with Dan Molad (of Lucius) and Ryan Alfred (of Calexico), Missed Connections is set to release in early 2016. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music and New York University on scholarships, Lionheart was the frontwoman for a number of successful bands before going solo. As the lead singer and principal songwriter of the explosive NYC electro-rock band, Zigmat, Lionheart was praised for her vocal agility by Billboard, who called her “the band’s secret weapon.” With Lionheart at the helm, Zigmat landed the band licensing deals, including a national commercial starring Gisele Bundchen, and toured much of Europe, garnering features on national Spanish radio as well as in Vanity Fair and Blender. Following Zigmat, Lionheart later joined the band, Pacha Massive, on Nacional Records who toured frequently, sharing the stage with artists like Morcheeba, Taio Cruz, Ozomatli, Café Tacvba, Los Amigos Invisibles among many others.
Being a solo artist since 2011, Lionheart continues to receive accolades for her music. Music videos for tracks from the Indian Summer album were added in MTV and VH1 rotations and received features in Latina Magazine, Remezcla and Billboard Magazine. One of Indian Summer 's two Spanish tracks, "Relampago" was used in an episode of the HBO Latino series, Capadocia.
