Fresh and soulful. Sexy and innocent. The infectious sound of Anne Montone is all this and more. As the lead vocalist for the down tempo trip hop band, Elephonic, Anne Montone laid the performance groundwork that lead to international licensing opportunities in film and television, and top notch reviews, all while packing bi-coastal venues Los Angeles and New York. Anne continues to grow and build within her own distinctive style. Her unparalleled talents have afforded her performances with band members who have worked with such greats as Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Ray Charles and Willie Bobo. Collaborations with other producers and musicians including Hopeton Brown (pka the Scientist), Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta) and Subtitle continue to expand and refine her urban, soulful sound. Her first solo outing, Rated M, features productions by Dminor, Michael Jeter and David Leggo Rojas. From the digital funk of Ladies Weekend to the soulful seduction of Weekend Lover, hers is the sound of right now, living in the fast-forward world where change is the only constant. Listen up.
