Montasia Breathe New Life Into A 1966 Hit With New Single
Longtime friends and music partners Chris Emerson and Donald Poole are making waves as the EDM duo Montasia with their genre-fusing signature style that has critics and fans alike raving, especially over their latest single, “Sunny.”

So they gave it a Montasia modern makeover! Perhaps the 2019 version of “Sunny” will find its way onto the Billboard Chart once again. It wouldn’t be the first time Montasia had a hit on their hands. Chris Emerson found himself with a Billboard smash with “All Because of You” in recent years.

Each growing up with a myriad of influences, when they began to work together, it was apparent they’d have a base sound in EDM, but were going to layer on their own notes with hints of pop, emo rap, reggae, and even alternative into the mix.
