Monica Martin – “Cruel”

By Will Oliver, December 17th 2018

You may remember Monica Martin as the lead singer of indie-folk act Phox who is currently on hiatus.

Martin has since embarked on a solo career of her own, signing to Republic Records who released her lovely debut single “Cruel” which is both an expansion of the sound she was making alongside Phox but also a different direction of her own.

Enjoy the performance below and catch her headlining shows in 2019 in LA and here in New York on January 23 at Public Arts (find tickets here).
