Monte Mar: Montë Mar is a modern alternative/pop band based in Los Angeles, California that formed in early 2011. The group came together out of a collective desire to play original music after frontman, Brian Green, gave up touring as a sideman with numerous artists including Michael Buble to pursue a more creative path. Montë Mar’s music tends to be colorful, with thoughtfully layered melodies over a bed of explosive drums, making live shows a mandatory workout for all who attend. They recently performed on Good Day LA, were featured on Myspace music and listed as one of Buzzband’s groups to watch of 2012. Their debut EP, Different Place, was released on October 15th. Montë Mar is Brian Green(vocals, guitar), Bill Zimmerman(vocals, keyboards), Kyle Crane(drums), and Dylan Durboraw(bass).
La Mer is a singer, songwriter, and performer born and raised in the City of Angels. She grew up in the theater, became a world traveler at a very young age, and spent hours in the dark filling diaries with secret songs and deep sea mysteries that would later determine her fate. She spent time living in Spain and then moved to NYC where she appeared in off-Broadway plays, performed in local venues, and rocked underground parties in warehouses, hidden elevator shafts and indie theaters across Brooklyn and Manhattan. She then joined as lead vocalist for New Orleans based key and drum duo ‘The Mumbles’, releasing 2 EP’s and touring the United States. After 2 years of life on the road, losing a friend in a horrible accident, setting a bonfire to who she though she was, and falling in love, La Mer moved to the top floor of a brownstone in the jungles of Bedsuy Brooklyn to study the masters of songwriting, find her voice and write a record. Tired of being a fish out of water, La Mer recently moved home to the Golden State and is currently collaborating with Grammy Award winning producer and engineer Andy Kravitz, embracing the waves, playing choice venues around LA, and enjoying life as a gritty hula girl in Venice Beach California.
