Biography

Anne Montone is a rare combination of endless musical talent and unyielding business savvy. Aside from being crowned the 2009 Los Angeles Champion of the Scion vocalist competition, the singer/songwriter has racked up numerous accolades through television and film placements, clothing endorsements, live performances, DJ gigs, international industry backing and rave reviews in both online and print publications.

What started out as a stint as lead singer of the trip hop group, Elephonic, has exploded into an impressive solo artist career. Throughout the years, Anne’s musical talent has graced the works of the Emmy nominated sitcom Girlfriends, the critically acclaimed film “Quinceañera,” winner of the Sundance Jury Award, and compilations for internationally recognized brands like Crocs and Scion. Recently, she was tapped by London Underground Shoes to be a vehicle for their brand. Shortly thereafter, Von Dutch Originals invited her into its Artists In Residency program, where she joined the likes of award winning talents like Esai Morales, Angie Stone, and Gary Baseman, to name a few.

As a performer, Anne has had numerous showcases and radio appearances all across the country including top billing during New York’s CMJ festival for the past three years. Always in the public eye, her talent recently caught the attention of Interscope A&R Ben Gordon (Jurassic 5, Mickey Avalon), Sly Doggie Production’s Christian Davis (Rodney Jerkins, Day26 – Making The Band 4), and Oscar nominated German beat makers, Steadyworks (Phantom of the Opera 2, Peter Pan). In addition to working with them on the completion of her second solo project, Anne has also formulated business partnerships by writing, recording and licensing songs with them for artists and brands both known and up-and-coming.

Rebel Industries CEO, Josh Levine once said, “Anne is exactly what the music industry needs: She’s got looks, endless creativity, and an entrepreneurial spirit.” Nothing could be closer to the truth. As Anne moves toward the future, she brings with her a long list of treats including a dance EP released in Europe later this year through Moodclub Music records, a U.S. single to hit the market via Scion’s A/V label, and a second solo installment released through her own label, Pushy Music.

Lyrics

Ladies Weekend

Written By: Anne Montone

So I'm up at the club just chillin' with my girlfriends, having such a good time, it's our ladies weekend
I see this guy he's peepin, so I start to stare. Then he looks away, but you know that I don't care.

And you might think that I wanna leave with you tonight. What you don't realized, is that your game really ain't that tight. So I hit the floor all my girls can't wait to see if you can keep this groove with me.

Don't you know, I'll give you a chance. All you gotta do is ask me for a dance. Don't take too long, I'm waiting for you, cause we aint got no time to lose

So I drop it to the floor, now what? What you gonna do when I get up? Make believe you're in the drivers seat but you follow me when we ride the beat. Aaaah It's getting hot in here, lemme see you move that thing.

Come a little closer dear, whisper in your ear, make you feel like you're going insane. Now you're feeling my body next to you and you really don't know just what to do, I know its killing you to be watching me, a real life dream and fantasy.

Talk to me baby don't waste my time I really don't care about your friends or mine, I won't bite unless you want me to..I'm choosing you boy...

Don't you know? I'll give you a change. All you gotta do is ask me for a dance. Don't take too long, I'm waiting for you. Cause we ain't got no time to lose.....

What About Us?

Written By: Anne Montone

I'm here all alone, looking at myself, what have I done? Am I being fair, is this who I want to be?
I push you pull. Come back, what's stopping us? Its gone, our love fades away.
There was a time when I waited but I can't no more. No.
Everyone wants a little bit and what would you do for a taste of it. Everyone wants a little bit and what about what about us?
Everyone wants a little bit and what would you do for a taste of it. Everyone wants a little bit and what about what about us?
Here you are back again. Walking through my door, how will it end? Why must we pretend?
My smiles, your eyes saying all the things we know are lies. All this to say goodbye.
There was a time when I waited but I can't no more. No.
Everyone wants a little bit and what would you do for a taste of it. Everyone wants a little bit and what about what about us?
Everyone wants a little bit and what would you do for a taste of it. Everyone wants a little bit and what about what about us?
Everyone wants a little bit and what about what about us?
Everyone wants a little bit and what would you do for a taste of it. Everyone wants a little bit and what about what about us?

Take Time

Written By: Anne Montone

I find I'm alone but I'm stronger every day. I'm loving me, I'm loving who I can be. This is a chance to show you, how I feel. How I'm learning every day you're my lucky star my my..

Time will show what's meant to be just open your heart and let it be free. Time will show what is meant to be just open your heart set it free.

Sometimes I'm alone now with no worries in my way. I'm learning me, nothing in life is guaranteed. I feel something's happening deep inside, I must slow down. Moving faster than the world or will she keep me spinning round?

Time will show what's meant to be just open your heart and let it be free. Time will show what is meant to be just open your heart set it free.

So when you're alone..I know its easy to feel lost. But there comes a time to be confident with what you've got. Things will be alright, no need to stress relax your mind. Nothing is impossible if you just stop to take the time.

Time will show what's meant to be just open your heart and let it be free. Time will show what is meant to be just open your heart set it free. Set it free.

Weekend Lover

Written By: Anne Montone

Weekend lover to sooth my mind. With kisses from head to toe. I need you to cover me with love. Are you someone who will please me please me?

I'm looking for a weekend lover, a lover who can be under cover. I'm looking for a weekend lover so he and I can be undiscovered.

Touch me sensual. Letting me let go. Please don't stop until I say so. A lover who can be under cover and under covers. Please me please me.

I'm looking for a weekend lover, a lover who can be under cover. I'm looking for a weekend lover so he and I can be undiscovered.

Warm skin on skin, naps in the sun, kisses, emotion, love.

Weekend lover to soothe my mind, with kisses from head to toe. Letting me let go.

I'm looking for a weekend lover, a lover who can be under cover. I'm looking for a weekend lover so he and I can be undiscovered.

I'm looking for a weekend lover, a lover who can be under cover. I'm looking for a weekend lover so he and I can be undiscovered.
