Mona Sterling – You’re a Jukebox Heroine
Mona Sterling is a Seattle, WA based alt-rocker with the chops and urban grit fitting the rainy city. With vocals reminiscent of Grace Slick and Meredith Brooks, her debut album “Lay Down Your Weapons” will satisfy anyone who loves hearing the hard truth and vulnerability surrounding love. The title track is a whimsical dance between slide guitars and witty lyrical play on not-s0-fair relationships. I picture a carnival scene-like music video. Likewise, “All Good” has a bitter-sweet flamenco feel, easy to chill to. If you are looking for cathartic release, “How Do I Say Goodbye” is the perfect blend of piano, light strings, and the pain of letting go.
My favorite tracks are “Room To Change” and “Wreck You.” I want to sing those to all of my ex-boyfriends, and then flip ’em the bird. Mona taps into the visceral “Hell hath no Fury” part of getting burned that makes rock and roll so powerful. Overall, Mona Sterling shines with emotional variety, spunk, and rebellion fitting a rocker on the rise. Check her out!
