Now, Little Shalimar leads the electro R&B unit, King Mono and has worked as a multi-instrumentalist/producer/DJ with Elvis Costello, TV On The Radio, Killer Mike, Steve Arrington, Antibalas and Chin Chin (of which he's a founding member).

In addition to his album credits, Little Shalimar works regularly as a composer for film and television. He has scored the critically-acclaimed film “Rubble Kings,” the film “Far From Home” for CNN, award-winning spots for Nike and many other projects.
