As a teenager, La’Monte learned to play piano from a master musician in only a year’s time. When he decided to expand his musical abilities with vocals, he settled on rap music.
“I did that because I didn’t know how to sing at the time. But as time progressed, so did I. I was drawn more to pop and vintage R&B, primarily due to my interest in the instrumentation and sounds involved in those genres,” he said. “So, I taught myself to sing using the piano. I used my knowledge of scales and notes, and that enabled me to easily transition into the artist I am today.”
– “She’s Around.” The album title song brings in the sounds of the Banjo. Inspired heavily by the karate films of the 1970s. The disco influence is evident In the piece, audible throughout the string progression. Blends 1970s disco progressions and eastern Banjo notes seamlessly, to create a uptempo r&b song.
