Like the human spirit, Ray Montford’s melodic original tunes are fuelled by a wild and raw beauty, inspiring haunting sonic canvasses that are equally rich in imagery, as they are powerful. Whether playing finger style open-tuning acoustic or his strat-infused buttery tone and sense of economy, Ray is a soulful player who lets his instrument sing, wringing emotion from every note and with a textured sound all his own. He is currently recording his seventh studio album, due for a summer 2018 release.

Born in Ottawa, Ray began learning by ear and woodshedding with the great rock records of that era. After studying audio engineering, production, and performance in the Music Industry Arts program at Fanshawe College and doing a term in the music program at Humber, he began writing and recording his own music, and by 1995 was dedicating most of his priorities in that discipline. Between 1994-'97, he was the guitar player for the Rankins and from 1997-'99, Mary Jane Lamond. His compositions have been heard on National CBC radio and have been licensed for various television series. For more than 20 years Ray and his rhythm section featuring some of Canada's best players, have played for audiences and loyal fans at music festivals, clubs, theatres, house concerts and private events.
