Aceyalone myspace

Drawing on the sounds from golden era Motown, 60's girl groups, Phil Spector, the J.B.s and a slew of raw, dirty funk, Aceyalone & The Lonely Ones pays tribute to the doo-wop, blues and funk genres that have inspired this Los Angeles-based front man/ emcee. A full big-band sound coupled with finger snaps and falsetto choruses round out this nostalgic and timeless sound.
