BoSsWRiTeR Is Born:

At the tender age of twelve, Montice gained an everlasting love for poetry, along with captivating spoken word music influenced by R&B, Pop, Jazz and Hip Hop. Into his freshman year of high school, Harmon's passion writing poetry and short stories began and became his number one priority. Even though poetry took the front seat, Harmon explored his gifts and took it a step further writing mini comic scripts in his notebooks, along with poetry, music and books by the age of sixteen. He later went on to write over four thousand poems and poetry, publishing many of them on between 2000-2005, winning multiple awards like editor's choice, poem of the month/Year on many occasions along with other competition awards.

By the time Montice Harmon was ready to graduate from high school at the age of seventeen, he had already made a name for himself as a writer in the entertainment business and decided to focus his attention on graduating and taking his writing further with his first novella entitled, Lost Without a Mind," a story about struggling teens finding their way through the pressures of dealing with life, sex and drugs. Harmon stated the story also reflected on domestic violence and wanted the book itself to empower those battling with domestic violence. Especially the youth. Later into the story he gave the book to his English teacher to read, edit and return. However, that was the last time he saw the story. She became sickly and later passed away of cancer before returning the manuscript. That did not stop Montice from writing, but somehow life took the lead in his life soon after high school in 2004. At 23, in 2007, he finally completed four novels and a children's book we know today as a bestseller, "The Adventures of Angus the Mouse."

 The Voice of Poetry

Poetically, Harmon's music his evolved since he debuted in 2010, at the age of 24. He developed a “good boy” image with a “hip-yet-wholesome” appeal. At the beginning of his career, he often cited Brandy Norwood as his biggest musical inspirations, with Norwood being his most prominent and personal influence. Outside of Norwood, he has cited singers Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, and Stevie Wonder as being his major vocal influences.

Harmon’s initial sound was contemporary R&B, heavily rooted in spoken word music.[2] His lyrics spokes of various types of love, life, and understanding from casual and friendly love to romantic and spiritual affairs. Influenced by Norwood and Jackson, he incorporated a ballad-heavy style and an adult contemporary feel into his urban-jazz sound for his first studio album Who I Am .[8] His latest release EP Love and Lessons  saw Harmon abandon his soft spoken like appeal for a more adult hip hop and sensual edginess. Along with his image, his voice has gone through a major change, trading his quite like rasp for a now deeper and warmer voice that has acquired a somewhat throatier, smoky edge grounded in soulful poetry and now r&b. His previous music from Who I Am reflected the change, as songs like "One Touch" and "Living to Love You" explored more adult, semi sexual topics, and a sound that blended his previous urban-pop sound with heavy influences of garage, glitch, and electro-funk. Harmon voice that has often been described as low, soft, raspy, and husky by music critics and Harmon his peers.

Harmon's 9th Poetry Reading

Harmon release a third single from EP, Love and Lessons titled '' Sad and Lonely '' this month, December 31, 2015 [4] Montice also stated he would be touring in December, 2015 [5].
