Monté is the name of Nathan James Wilkins' (Hikes) solo project. Unlike the rapturous, crowd-jumbling Hikes, the softer folk-tronic crescendos and hip-hop inspired vibes of Monté take on a more intimate tone. Quiet vocals, like rustling leaves, echo through the depths of a forest to reach ones ears as guitar folds and rapids mimic those of trickling streams and flooded creeks. The flow achieved in this guitar-loop based music is due in part to Wilkins' unwavering subscription of nature and friendship, it thereby delivers peace and stirs emotion equally.
