Close your eyes and imagine yourself in a candlelit ballroom. A haunting cello and drum beat provide the score for masked couples swaying on the dancefloor. A grandfather clock strikes midnight, and as the music swells, it seems that anything is possible. This is the world of The Loneliest Monk. Real-life couple Michelle Morales (master cellist, keyboardist, vocalist) and Miles Benjamin (percussion, vocals, tiny piano) create an ethereal mix of classical, art-rock and chamber pop that is at once beautiful, sexy, mysterious and cool.
