Ray LaMontagne

Ray LaMontagne

Chris Gray

Ray LaMontagne has been recognized as one of the 21st century’s leading brown-eyed soul singers almost immediately since his debut, Trouble, appeared in 2004. Channeling greats like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Van Morrison into his world-weary croon, the New Englander has now released five LPs marked by a deep-seated sincerity even as the musical sands around him have shifted considerably. Trouble’s largely acoustic roots-pop begat the haunting orchestral textures of 2006’s Til the Sun Turns Black, which in turn led to the overt classic-soul flourishes of Gossip in the Grain two years later. Following 2010’s comfortably casual God Willing & the Creek Don’t Rise — a full-band record credited to Ray LaMontagne & the Pariah Dogs — in April he returned with Supernova, an eclectic and ’60s-enamored affair helmed by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.
