New Hampshire-native-turned-roving-troubadour Ray LaMontagne has to be at least intermittently entertained by the ironies that punctuate his biography. For instance, the odds have to be fairly long that LaMontagne’s singer/songwriter path would begin with hearing Stephen Stills’ “Treetop Flyer” in 1999 and lead to working with Stills’ daughter Jennifer on his 2004 debut full-length, Trouble.
That kind of inevitability seems to mark every touchstone in LaMontagne’s extremely potent career. Read more about LaMontagne in this week's Sound Advice.
