Guitar player extraordinaire....jaw-dropping performer....master songwriter - all these descriptions aptly, but only partially come close to describing Monte Montgomery - the incredibly talented guitar slinger from Austin, Texas.
Named one of "Top 50 All-Time Greatest Guitar Players" by Guitar Player Magazine, Monte is a rare and true triple threat of singer, songwriter and master musician. His latest recording, a self-titled, 12 cut record, showcases Monte's stylistic diversity and soulfully explores the many shades of his artistry. The virtuoso, trademark guitar licks and arrangements you'd expect from Monte are there, forming the rich and colorful aural backdrop of his insightful songwriting and amazing voice. From bluesy roots rock like "Can't Fool Everyone" to wistful ballads to the jazzy "Could've Loved You Forever"...this record has it all. And just when you think you've got him pegged, he changes it up to leave listeners breathless with the sensual, lyrical, Latin-tinged "Moonlight Tango".
It's no wonder that Austin City Limits producer Terry Lickona introduced him years ago on that program with these words: "Monte Montgomery blows people away. There is no other way to describe it."
