Ray Montford and Friends
$25 Advance / $30 Door
Ray Montford & Friends return to Hugh’s Room for a rare Toronto Show, one year after the release of Ray’s new album ’Share My Sky’, which is now available on vinyl as well. For this show, Ray will perform an intimate solo acoustic set, followed by a longer electric set with his stellar band. The repertoire will feature music from Ray’s entire catalogue. Joining him will be: Lynn Moffatt – vocals, Ben Riley – drums and Mat Falvai – bass.
Ray Montford’s powerful original tunes are characterized by a wild and raw beauty. Often inspired by the human condition, his instrumental compositions paint haunting canvasses that are rich in imagery, leaving an indelible mark on the listener. Blurring boundaries between rock, blues, jazz and folk, the most striking aspect of Montford’s artistry is that he finds countless ways to convey emotion through his compositions and soulful playing. In the end, it’s all about taking the listener on an unforgettable journey.
Share My Sky, Ray’s new and eight studio album, finds the guitarist expanding his sonic range and compositional depth to offer his most personal and emotional statement to date.
