Portishead meets The Weekend Players with Elephonic, a four piece group led by Anne Montone, whose sweet voice offers the whimsy of Rachel Foster and the subtle instensity of Bjork...Together Elephonic delivers an intimate show that is at once sexy and innocent, joyful and sad...Often elusive, whether playing soulful downtempo, sexy trip-hop, or experimental broken beat, their intimate show leaves you pondering the meaning of life, love, and, yes, happiness..."

"URB Magazine's Next 100, 2005"

It's hard to concentrate working next to a rockstar. But when URB advertising diva Anne Montone signs off the clock for the day, she becomes the singer of Elephonic, one of LA's busiest new groups. The foursome have conquered the LA club scene with their sultry downtempo sound and made nice with radio tastemakers across the So-Cal dial. A remix project featuring Next 100 alum Subtitle among others means 2005 should be the year Elephonic goes nationwide. JBou - URB Magazine

"Anne Montone"

The first few tracks are well produced, lush, soulful downtempo breaknish. Sounds like Janet Jackson and Bjork had a baby and made it sing to People Under the Stairs’ backupband. Beautiful soulfunk in places, kinda strange in others.

"Anne Montone - Next 1000 URB Magazine"

"Montone’s sassy, playful vocals are the perfect complement to the hook-laden, house-infused musical backdrops of her solo project...On “Take a Picture,” Montone struts her stuff on a track that showcases her strong, charismatic voice and her uncanny ability to lead crowds to the dance floor."

"Rated M (Pushy Music 2007)"

"From the first pulsations of "Ladies Weekend," singer Anne Montone's voice gets free. It's a chill drive with the windows down to your favorite club with your girls - the anticipation of the evening calling you out. Soulful, sexy and fun, the songs here, like "What About Us?" break with real, tender intimacy." - URB MAGAZINE - JAN/FEB '07 - URB Magazine - Jan/Feb '07

"Anne Montone's Elephonic"

"if i was just through cruisin and bruisin’ through the sloppy shoddy substanceless ego fed and talentless bred cobweb of LA looking for some sort of redeeming sense of artistry over image while cursing how deep the depths of the soulless turd this city churns out and is more than happy to entertain have actually been rooted, i would need something, anything, to give me a reason not to slit my wrists to escape the should-be-abandoned church of barrcode worship (someone give me a medal for world’s longest sentence...). it is at that exact point of limitless loss of hope that Anne Montone’s sultry voice oozes the earthy pleasures and genuinely necessary contemplation associated with heartfelt soul seduction and
romance, pain and pleasure, happiness, hatred, love, and guilt, all within a few simple sexy breaths.
And best of all, it all plays into the perfection of the relaxed downtempo Portisheady beats dropped by eddie Barajas, Joe Funkl, and Jennifer cook. Hot shit. [wAM]

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.
