On his last acoustic tour, critics across the US were raving about his performance. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said, “Ray LaMontagne’s voice and its raspy, yet smooth tones paired with the simplistic live acoustics awakened the senses and made you feel … good. He gave you honest music filled with raw feeling, and it was amazing,” while The Cincinnati Inquirer claimed, “a Ray LaMontagne concert is like this: intimate and personal, as if you’ve infringed upon a private performance session.” Consequence of Sound said, “Hearing Ray LaMontagne perform live is a poignant and magical experience,” while The Boston Herald raved, “LaMontagne’s voice remains a marvel, quiet and reflective one minute and forceful and impassioned the next. It really is an amazing instrument.”
In May, Ray released his seventh studio album Part of the Light via NPR said, “With ambitious acoustic ’70s-style sounds, LaMontagne’s warmth radiates on a record that expands on what we’ve come to expect from the singer-songwriter,” and that LaMontagne is “in this incredibly inspired period in his career right now.”
The first single “Such A Simple Thing” is currently in the Top 10 on BDS’ AAA chart. He performed the track on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (watch here) and BBC Two’s LATER…with Jools Holland (watch here) and the track was featured in the season finale of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Most recently, Ray made a stop to NPR’s World Café (listen here).
