Art Monkeys is a Baltimore-based non-profit that aims to spread the importance of the arts in the community.

“We do this by hosting art-based events where the artists are the show, sponsor local artists with inventory, support, and sales opportunities in hopes that they go professional, and inviting the public to participate in our classes that range from the business side of art (marketing and sales) to the effects we hope it has (processing anxiety & PTSD).”  -Art Monkeys

Debut tune “Anonymous” FIRST LISTEN

“  ‘Anonymous’ has sort of a deep, dark jazzy feel to it. The song honestly reminds me of sitting in a dark jazz club, letting Kim’s soft voice fill my head. Crafty syncopation in the drums, deep bass and harmonic guitar chords lay a hypnotic backdrop, while Kim’s fluttering flute aptly fills in the gaps. ”
