Reliant Tom

Reliant Tom is a Brooklyn-based indie band formed by songwriter & dancer Claire Cuny, in co-partnership with producer & sound artist Monte Weber.

The pair met in 2015 at a dance theatre show in Brooklyn that Claire was performing in. After the performance Monte introduced himself and they immediately connected, talking of music, dance, and art. Monte was getting his Masters in music theory and composition at NYU, and Claire was dancing in projects and singing in bands throughout the city. What began as a romantic connection eventually also became a musical collaboration. The mix of their very different musical backgrounds and love for each other create the unique sound that is Reliant Tom. They consider each album/project an opportunity to explore new sounds whether it’s the industrial art rock noise of “Bad Orange” (2018), the dark and introspective world of “Play & Rewind” (2020) or their latest endeavor “dancer in the dark” which the band has expressed will be a warm hug of nostalgia through a modern lens. “dancer in the dark” will be released as a series of singles throughout this year and next.
