"Like Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones, San Francisco's own Monica Pasqual proves that strong songwriting and stirring singing will take command of just about any stylistic setting."

Monica Pasqaul

This Cold Desire

In addition to her work in Blame Sally, Monica Pasqual has had a prolific career making, performing and recording music since the mid-90’s. With a background in classical piano and her current side-career composing music for film soundtracks, Pasqual’s recent solo material has focused on haunting, yearning song-poems that explore her sense of place, love, loss, war and dreams. Co-produced with long-time collaborator, guitarist BZ Lewis, “This Cold Desire” illustrates the best of what these two versatile musicians have to offer: compelling arrangements that transcend easy genre definitions, rich with atmospheric guitars, hypnotic rhythms, and Pasqual’s signature vocals and piano.
