The proceeding laid the perfect foundation for the rest of the night’s festivities.The black stage was slow to light as Ray La Montagne began to play the opening chords of “Gossip in the Grain”, but soon a light show worthy of Pink Floyd concert appeared behind La Montagne. Obviously creative progression is a large part of La Montagnes vision, which chimes well with that of his pal and producer Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams). You wholeheartedly support customers as satisfactory. But then that album was of course a move on from his 2004 debut, Trouble.so I had to wiki them up, where I was reminded of the only bit of information I had on them befrore the show; the grandfather of the sibling core of the band is Oscar winning composer John WIlliams. Other than moving the drum kit to the front of the stage the main clue was the Mickey Dolenz style vocal mic.
From the stringent photo policy to the fantastic light show, one gets the feeling that Mr. Gossip In The Grain Lauded singer/songwriter, Ray La Montagne is set to release his much-anticipated third album, Gossip In The Grain, on October 14th on RCA Records. As La Montagne explains “It was time to open up a little bit more, not be quite so reserved in my choice of songs that I wanted to record.” Recently called by Vanity Fair “a fresh reminder that the genuine artist is not yet an extinct species,” Gossip In The Grain reconfirms Ray La Montagne as an artist and a craftsman without limits, a songwriter who is able to work his melodic gifts and distinctive lyricism through any of the myriad musical traditions that catches his fancy. Along with his band members, La Montagne is also joined on two tracks – “A Falling Through” and “I Still Care For You” – by singer/songwriter Leona Naess.Warm blues and reds faded in and out as he stood almost motionless, except for the strumming of an acoustic guitar.His current tour coincides with his latest release, Supernova.
