Echo - Monti ft Josh Stevens
We would like to share something a little different for our next LCM #SongOfTheDay feature. It's called 'Echo' by Los Angeles based artist Monti, produced and co-written by Josh Stevens (LMFAO, Calvin Harris, The Game). Thank you for the introduction Ella Morrison.
Monti’s music empowers the next generation with thought provoking lyrics about overcoming a life of hardships. Born into an abusive broken home filled with drugs and alcoholism, Monti was a runaway who dodged foster care systems living off and on the streets, escaping a life of gangs, mental hospitals, group homes, and drug and alcohol abuse. Her turbulent past is brilliantly conveyed in her debut song 'Echo', sonically, it is a stunningly poignant pop song with haunting vocals, deep synths and indie electronic beats..
Echo (Official Visual Video) Back Story
Reggie Snowden is an aspiring fashion design student from Los Angeles, California. After meeting and designing outfits for Josh Stevens, Reggie opened up about how he had to travel to and from school, up early mornings each day to take buses and trains from Inglewood to North Hollywood, Ca. All the while still juggling graveyard night shifts for work each evening.
Josh thought it was an inspiring and fascinating story. So he and Echo video director Matt Champagin gave Reggie a $50 budget and a camera, the Echo video is the result of Reggie's story and truly beautiful perspective. It gives a raw up close look at Los Angeles.
