Along with his musical talents, Skelton is known for his kind heart and optimistic outlook on life, even through the hardest of times.

Along with recording, mixing, mastering and producing two solo albums between 2017-2018, Monte has also performed with the legendary group The Temptations and jazz vocalist Sherrie Bias, and has performed for many other famous musicians and events.
