Monica Mancini’s fifth album, I’ve Loved These Days is a collection of covers of the beloved sixties classics of her musical heroes; such artists as Paul Simon, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Harry Nilsson, Janis Ian, and Billy Joel.
Joining her in the album are Jackson Browne, Brian Wilson, Take 6, Stevie Wonder, and Rascal’s Felix Cavaliere. They offer a variety of instrumental and vocal support in each song, and Stevie Wonder and Take 6 make a return performance from Mancini’s last album, double Grammy nominee, Ultimate Mancini.
Her perfect pitch and smooth voice give the songs a new sound that can generate a wider audience and deeper appreciation for the original artists. She does a fantastic job bringing these old classics back to life with a contemporary style that will keep her audience wanting more.
“I’m beyond thrilled to have made this album and work with these artists and producers! For me, it’s always about the songwriters and their songs” said Mancini in a quote provided by Christina Cherkezian, Associate of Social Media and ePR. “As an artist, it has been an important project for very personal reasons and what I needed to do. I hope people will discover new meaning in the music as I have. This is my way of exploring my musical heroes and discovering what their songs continue to reveal.”
