Monica Rizzio at the Off the Common Coffeehouse


Monica Rizzio will be at the Off the Common Coffeehouse in Bridgewater on Saturday, October 5th 

Monica Rizzio will be the featured performer at the Off the Common Coffeehouse (OTC) in Bridgewater on Saturday October 5th 2019 at 7:30. The $15 tickets will be available only at the door when the doors open at 7:00pm. The OTC is at the U. U. Church at 50 School Street in Bridgewater MA

“It don’t cost no money, if your pockets are empty, sunshine is free.” It’s clear when speaking with singer-songwriter Monica Rizzio that she sees the bright side. Her new album, Sunshine Is Free, is all about doing just that: appreciating how the little things in life make it all worth it. A bonfire on a beach. A couple of days with the one you love. Simply doing...nothing.

“I approached this record entirely different than my first album,” Monica says. “Collaboration is really what connects these songs. I lived in Nashville in the early 2000s; it was at those iconic open mics at 12th & Porter, Douglas Corner and The Bluebird Cafe when I first heard songwriters like Mindy Smith, Hillary Lindsey, and Elizabeth Cook. I learned a lot about songwriting from these women, and I wanted to get back to Nashville to harness my creative spirit and start co-writing, something I have struggled with. Starting in October 2018, I would fly down to Nashville every few weeks for writing sessions. The only constant was me and my vision for the album, everything else was new.”

Monica returned to Nashville’s Skinny Elephant Studio to record Sunshine Is Free over a week in April, along with producer Michael Rinne (Kelsey Waldon, Erin Rae, Caroline Spence). The album includes a stacked lineup of guest musicians including Mindy Smith, Maya de Vitry, Joe Pisapia (Guster), Gwen Sebastian (Miranda Lambert), Will Kimbrough (Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell), Todd Lombardo, Spencer Cullum Jr. (Miranda Lambert), Danny Mitchell (Miranda Lambert) and Eamon McLoughlin (Emmylou Harris, the Grand Ole Opry) along with co-writers including Mindy Smith, Michael Rinne, Gwen Sebastian, Aaron Raitiere (A Star Is Born, Lori McKenna, Anderson East), Carl Anderson, Mark Erelli and Hayley Sabella.

Growing up about a hundred miles outside of Dallas, in a small town in East Texas, Monica did what many people do in rural Texas: she learned to sing gospel hymns in church and received an education in classic country music with exposure to greats like Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, Connie Francis and Dolly Parton. “Don’t Keep Me Up Waiting,” is a waltz inspired by years of spinning Willie Nelson’s Red Headed Stranger album over and over, the infectious pedal steel highlights this tribute to her musical idols.

“My first instrument was my voice, because it was the cheapest and everyone sang in church,” she says.

With a perspective equally influenced by her Texas roots and her Cape Cod home, Monica has emerged as one of the finest talents in the East Coast music scene. After a decade with Tripping Lily, a folk acoustic-pop band, to which she added fiddle and vocals, she’s now embarked on a solo career that draws on her East Texas rust upbringing for a countrified Americana sound.

Ms.fresh Organics


Around the Common is pleased to welcome our newest business listing Ms.fresh. We encourage all of our readers to support local business!


Ms.fresh was founded by Bridgewater resident Jill Sheridan, a mom of four with a M.Ed. in biology who works as a bio/engineering teacher and natural living researcher. 


About 15 years ago, Jill became aware of the dangerous chemicals we were slathering on our largest organ - carcinogens, hormone disruptors, reproductive toxins, and pesticides - oh my! Research provided perspective and Jill knew we were on the verge of a necessary paradigm shift when it came to how we thought of body and home care. With indoor air pollution, autoimmune disease, product allergies, asthma, and hormonal cancers on the rise, truth started to emerge with the empirical evidence to support it - ingredients do matter. It was with that background and coupled with years of research that Sheridan decided to launch Ms.fresh.

​Since founding Ms.fresh, Jill has made it her mission to educate and empower those within the community to make safe swaps that people can afford and believes that no one should be priced out of healthy choices for their families. Women in science are going to be an essential part of this change and Ms.fresh prides itself on being a woman-owned business seeking to make an impact on the local community and the residents who call it home.

Located in Bridgewater, the entire Ms.fresh product line can be found on their website by clicking here. Be sure to also give Ms.fresh a "like" on Facebook by clicking here
