This is my first - a fingerstyle solo acoustic album with minimal accompaniment - recorded in 1991 but never released until now. A good one for acoustic guitar lovers. Ray montford - acoustic guitar, electric on '3 AM' rob greenway - hand drum & percussion on 'may it begin' & 'one witness' steve lucas - bass 'one witness' © 2004 Softail Records © 2004 SOCAN Short Bio Ray Montford engages the senses as he puts out the powerful grooves and liquid guitar tones that mark his narrative style. Throughout six independent albums, his heart has remained loyal to the rock influences he loves while incorporating the sounds of jazz / blues / roots and world music that continue to inspire him. Consistently, audiences rave about Ray's 'emotional, intimate, powerful and haunting' music and performances. For more than 15 years Ray's dynamic group of Canada's best known players have shared their visceral energy with thousands of fans at music festivals, clubs and theatres. They have toured Europe, shared the stage with the Tony Levin Band (alumnae of Peter Gabriel) and recently sold out the Young Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto for the release of Ray's latest CD, a fragile balance, also available on 180 gram vinyl.
