Monica Rizzio didn’t pick up a guitar until her early 20s. Her family relocated to Cape Cod, Massachusetts from Texas when she was young. Always fond of Country – Americana and Bluegrass sounds, Rizzio found herself drawn to writing and singing a more traditional form of country music. Called a “washashore” by the locals in the Cape, she brings an authentic sound to her northern audience. Paired with her concise and meticulous natured lyrics, Rizzio showcases a mature professionalism in her music.

In our podcast interview with Monica, we discuss her fondness for songwriting using a warm sounding vintage 1956 Martin and we chat about her educational non-profit, Vinegrass. We also showcase Rizzio’s jovial side in our always enjoyable trivia questions piece. Rizzio kindly granted us use of her “Washashore Cowgirl” to use in these podcasts.

Check out Monica Rizzio on Sunday, April 15th for an early show with doors opening at 6pm. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door for $10.
