Originally from London, UK, LTtheMonk first fell in love with hip-hop at just eight years old, when the music captivated his young ears and ignited what would become a lifelong passion. Blended with constant exposure to reggae (via his Jamaican mother) and rock (via his Irish father), LT’s adventurous love of music and performing onstage would only grow stronger.
That eclectic musical upbringing, coupled with discovering the music of Michael Jackson and becoming obsessed with the pop icon’s music and dancing in parallel with his foundational hip hop exposure, set LT off on a journey to becoming a musician himself. It’s also an intrinsic part of LT’s toolkit, with bantamweight Gene Kelly-meets-James Brown footwork and immaculate sport socks both indelible signatures of his persona as an entertainer.
LT has since carved a reputation as a vibrant and compelling talent, moving to Canada in 2017, where he has since been furthering his career in the cities of Hamilton and Toronto. And taking all of his influences, LT aims to fuse dance music with hip-hop and pop, to create his own unique sound, which you can hear in songs such as ‘Class Of ’23’ & ‘The Lo’.
