Ray LaMontagne

Anyone else a big fan of Ray LaMontagne and his debut Trouble that came out in late 2004? It hasn't left my cd player since a friend gave me a copy a few weeks ago. He reminds me a lot of The Band. Seriously this whole album is amazing.

I'm bumping this thread because I just picked up his new album (as well as Trouble), and I haven't listened to anything else since Saturday. I'm completely floored by how lovely his voice is. I've been going through sort of a dry spell with new music lately, but he's as talented a songwriter as I've heard in a long time.

If you're buying individual tracks, I recommend Empty, Can I Stay, Barfly, and Three More Days from Til the Sun Turns Black, and the title track from Trouble (though that whole album is pretty stellar).

I like his new CD too, I think Lesson Learned might be the best song on it- well it's my favorite as of today. His voice is killer.

Anyone notice something familiar about the cover of Trouble, the quote on the inside of the cover, and the lyrical content of some of the songs?

Exactly. And the cover art is of a devil character dancing with a blindfolded woman. And the quote inside the cover is: : "Shrewd devil, you know very well that God pardons singers no matter what they do, because he can simply die for a song."

Funny how someone else has represented almost the exact same thing in the exact same way.

I don't think he has a bad song on either of his two albums. I saw him on his tour with Guster this summer, and I'm planning on seeing him again in Atlanta this December. No one has a voice like his.

I saw him last night, it was pretty amazing-except for some a holes in the audience.

Ray is the complete anti-Bono on stage, he barely speaks and when he does it's a whisper. The most excitement was when he called a guy a fuckhead for yelling out Freebird. I don't understand, if people want to go to a raucous rock show why would they go see someone like him? Some people and what they yelled out, it was so rude. He did To Love Somebody by The Bee Gees as an encore.

I was there early and he walked out of his bus and into the theater and never even looked at anyone. Oh well, he speaks with his voice and music.

I didn't even know he had a wife and/or daughters.

I got this NPR link from his mailing list

4. I Still Care For You
5. Winter Birds
6. Meg White
7. Achin’ All The Time

His tour dates are on his web site, there are presales today. I was thinking about maybe getting a ticket but I didn't.
