Nite Jewel is the stage name of Los Angeles-based singer and composer Ramona Gonzalez. She rose to fame in 2008 with the self-released EP she had recorded on an eight-track recorder, with the help of her husband, musician Cole Marsden Greif-Neill. That same year she released the single “What Did He Say” on Italians Do It Better, alongside her debut album, “Good Evening”. Her notably experimental sound focusses on synth-pop, but is also influenced by styles like synthetic funk and boogie. Her compositions are usually based on layers of ethereal and cosmic synths over old drum machine tracks, combined with her languid vocal style. Nite Jewel has worked with the likes of Jason Grier and Dâm-FunK. She's also a multimedia artist and has done several audio-visual installations in and around Los Angeles. In 2012 she is releasing her second album, “One Second Of Love”
