Singer/songwriter Monika has two platinum albums in her native Greece and is poised to make a similar impression in the U.S. with the release of her third album, Secret in the Dark. Produced by Homer Steinweiss, a founding member of the Dap-Kings and Menahan Street Band, at Dunham Sound Studios, where Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley are among the regulars, Secret merges Monika’s unique ethereal style with an American soul feel.
Monika stopped by the Paste Studio in New York while in town for CMJ to play three new tracks. Watch “Stripping” in the player above. Also check out “Give Us Wings” and “Secret in the Dark.”
