Biography

Originally from Boston, MA, Sonny Mone started developing his unique writing and playing style performing in the New England club and coffee house circuit.

After relocating to Southern California, he caught the attention of Crazy Horse, the band best known for their collaboration with Neil Young.

Mone went on to write, record, and perform with members of Crazy Horse, as a singer and guitarist. His work with them resulted in memorable live performances, film soundtracks, the CD "Left For Dead", and numerous other projects with fellow Crazy Horse alumni.

Currently performing acoustically, he is also working with a new line up on a studio CD set for release this year. The line up features "Toad the Wet Sprocket" bassist Dean Dinning, Percussionist Victor Bisetti from "Los Lobos", and drummer Michael DiMauro.

The music is decidedly different than any of their prior work. Welding acoustic/electric textures to driving rhythms and defined vocals, they've created a hybrid sound that's both familiar and unique. These songs are the bulk of Sonny Mone's acoustic performance along with material from Crazy Horse, prior solo CD's, and select covers by various artists.
