Ladies Lotto: Members of the Month, September

From Ladies Lotto:

For September we're honoring some of the hardest working ladies in public relations, music, media and styling.

Ladies Lotto
Los Angeles
Anne Montone

Anne Montone is the ultimate representation of the millennial woman – warm spirited, confident, talented, and successful. Since moving from Portland, Oregon to Los Angeles in pursuit of a Women's Studies degree at Occidental College, Anne has lived life to the fullest; exploring the many shades of her gifts and talents. While in college, Anne dove deep into her musical upbringing, performing in several popular stage productions. After graduation, Anne joined four of her college classmates and became the lead singer of a group called Elephonic. The group eventually attained a modest, international success with music placements in the popular TV series "Girlfriends," 2006's award-winning film "Quinceañera," several live performances and placements on compilation albums for Crocs and Scion.

As an artist, not only did she have to find a way to deliver her artistic message, but a way to pay her bills as well. "That was probably one of the toughest periods of my life," she says with an ironic smile. "Thank God for the support of my friends and family!" Anne was able to tap into her business management skills and maximize her industry visibility while working with the likes of URB Magazine, Very Short Movies Festival, legendary concert promoters Bill Silva and Andy Hewitt, and several freelance event management and promotion positions.

While working full time, Anne managed to complete her first solo EP, "Rated M," in 2007, an album that garnered her coast-to-coast performances, regional radio play, merchandising, and opportunities to work with some of today's hottest producers and performance talent. Anne is currently a Regional Manager for 10 Cane Rum and is putting the finishing touches on her 2nd solo effort, "DEFINED," due this fall.
