Blacklite Productions is a Songwriting and Production Company in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The company was founded by Tony Burkhart (2Tone) and Lauren Burkhart (Elise) in 2011.
Read below for 2Tone and Elise's biographies.


Tony Burkhart is a Cincinnati-based artist who specializes in producing and performing a
unique style of rap and hip hop music for diverse audiences. Tony’s stage name “2Tone”
represents his ability to blend multiple music genres, or “tones,” into his songs.

A life-long songwriter and musician, 2Tone began recording original music over a
decade (and thousands of studio hours) ago. Since then, he has self-produced three
full-length 2Tone albums and collaborated with dozens of professional artists to
expand his musical résumé. 2Tone’s production credits span many genres from rap
to country, and several of his songs have received airplay on AM/FM and internet
radio stations. 2Tone’s musical passion and talent can be directly attributed to his
family’s musical background. His father and uncle (Grand Prize Winners of multiple
Billboard Songwriting Competitions) introduced him to professional songwriting,
recording and production techniques at a young age. His sister (a.k.a. Elise) is also
an aspiring singer/songwriter who routinely collaborates with 2Tone. Together they
plan to launch their new studio and music production company “Blacklite Productions”
in March, 2011.

2Tone began his professional music career as an Audio Engineer at Madison Park
Productions after graduating from Indiana University in 2006. This position greatly
influenced his current recording techniques through the co-production of voiceovers and
radio commercials for major corporations such as P&G, Kroger and Western-Southern
Financial Group. This technical role also proved valuable in shaping 2Tone’s knowledge
of the multimedia world, as does his current “Digital Media Management” position at
CareStar, a national healthcare company contracted with the Ohio Home Care Program.

2Tone is now evaluating every opportunity to re-enter the professional music business as
a producer and/or artist, and is very interested in working with you as soon as possible.


Elise is a 22-year-old singer/songwriter from Cincinnati, Ohio who writes
and records music for a broad audience. She has been actively involved
in Pop, Rock, Country and Hip Hop-oriented music for over ten years
and is now pursuing a professional music career.

Elise routinely performs her music in the Cincinnati Tri-State area with her father’s
rock band (her father, Ken Burkhart, is a Grand Prize winner of several BMI
songwriting contests). Elise’s studio recordings are produced by her brother (a.k.a.
2Tone) who performs with her and has received radio airplay. 2Tone's songs
are also included on Elise's EPK. They plan to launch their new studio and music
production company “Blacklite Productions” in 2011.

Special Achievements:

• Elise has continuously received extensive airplay on HOOAH!!!! Radio
(online radio station which has accumulated more than 45 million hits in two
years) and was interviewed on-air in December, 2009

• Music e-zine website Flip Side to Music interviewed Elise in March, 2010

• Elise’s single, “The Silent Ranks,” was featured on
The Forgotten Soldiers Project (charity album for military) in July, 2010

Elise is now seeking the opportunity to work with you...
