Dan Montgomery
Dan Montgomery
Memphis Americana stalwart Dan Montgomery returns with his fifth full length album GONE. A raucous record of lost love, disorientation...and eventual acceptance...all with a walloping back beat !

With the opening one two salvo of "Gettin Up" and the title track it's clear that this is no hum & strum sub Blood on the Tracks, GONE is the breakup album you can dance to . Written and recorded quickly with his Memphis based band (Robert Mache' - guitar vocals Jeremy Scott - Bass James Cunningham - Drums and Candace Mache' - vocals), the same band that played on 2014's acclaimed Sin, Repent, Repeat. "I got my electric guitar out of hock finally" says Montgomery about the more rocking collection of songs on the new album. "Seriously" he continued, " I write to my rhythm section more than anything else and James & Jeremy can bring the big beat . I brought a new song in every Monday and we'd bang it out a few times and sure enough we'd have a take. It was all very brash and immediate and that's certainly reflected in the song selection." While there are several drop dead gorgeous ballads like "What Am I Here For" and the closing "A Little Tear"(presented in it's original demo form the day it was written), the meat of this album is in it's rock and roll heart. "With the penultimate track "Gotta Go" we reached this weird combination of The Collins Kids and Foghat...which should not have worked but there you have it... It was an album full of surprises"

GONE will be released on June 3rd and will be followed up with an east Coast tour starting June 8th and culminating in a Philadelphia Record Release Show at World Cafe Live. "Touring with the full band(plus special guests along the way) is my favorite thing to do " says Montgomery " and we're really firing on all cylinders right now. There's gonna be some barn burners on this tour for sure !"

Rob's interest in performing popular music started during his teenaged years. His passion for drumming led him into several original music projects around the Philadelphia area. Rob would eventually go on to tour and record with roots based artist Ben Vaughn who really had a profound influence on his music appreciation. As Rob toured the US and Europe extensively he was introduced to artists such as John Hiatt, Alex Chilton and Scott McCaughey. These influences had a huge impact on the direction of his own music and ideas. The focus would soon shift from drumming to writing and singing his own songs. While continuing to drum for many artists around the Philly area including Suzanne Gorman and Amy Carr, Rob began working on his first collection of original music. In 2013 he released his first solo album "Catchin' A Ride”. In 2014 Rob signed on with Lou DeMarco and the Momentary Love Management Group. Since then he has taken his music on the road to many US cities including New York, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Norfolk, Nashville and Memphis. He has also been a featured guest on NPR's Acoustic Highway with host Barry Graham. He is currently working on a follow-up solo album.
