    On a gusty evening this past October, a cozy gathering of friends were treated to one of Norway's best-kept, musical secrets. Monica Heldal was in the US for the first time, attempting to tame the wild beast that is the CMJ Music Marathon. As she zipped around numerous shows in the city, she and her guitarist also carved out a little time for an intimate set as part of our Bands and Brews Sessions. With a a few cuts from her debut album Boy from the North, Monica channeled the more mystical side of folk...think Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, or even the acoustic side of Led Zeppelin. These are songs of a certain-power, equally shaped by the influence of a great record collection, the dramatic beauty of her homeland, and the places her imagination allows her songs to go. Treat yourself to a dose of acoustic beauty with this captivating session video.
