Monica Martin has a certain way with words, so when she shared some of what she learned from her past "clumsy little romances," it didn't surprise us that her conclusion was as equally well-stated as her lyrics: "You kinda gotta go in full ass out so you find that person that can actually rock with your freakness."
Martin took over Species by the Thousands in Brooklyn with NYLON for a soulful acoustic set and shared all that went into making her the musician she is today. Get to know the singer in this episode of Out Here, above.
