Imbued with both dry-witted humor and earnest passion, LaMuff's vocal-driven songs range in sound from electronic synth-pop to chamber post-rock to hip hop. Her live shows are as visual as they are aural—complete with wigs, costumes, and prop-wielding backup singers. The artist behind LaMuff is Los Angeles-based Monica Howe, a studied vocalist whose commanding, versatile style has been compared to a variety of singers, including Grace Jones, Keely Smith, Patti Smith and Diamanda Galas. Howe’s influences include vintage Hollywood musicals and big band crooners, '80s rap and new wave, and millennial bleeps and bloops. LaMuff released her first single and video, “Come on, Taste my Rainbow,” in 2011. The four-song EP Gold Lamé and a music video for the title track followed in 2012. All recordings are produced by composer and sound designer Joshua Fielstra.
