Ray Lamontagne


On my concert bucket list: Ray Lamontagne. I first heard this dude sing on Saturday Night Live of all places, which seemed a bit uncommon for their normal musical guest selections.

Soulful and yearning, I was sold. When I saw his new album Supernova was hitting the stores I figured my chances would be good to catch him on tour.

The PNC Pavilion is a fine enough establishment, but I yearn for smaller venues or the ability to move around. Don’t get me wrong, Ray put on a fine show—faithful to recordings, maybe a bit buried on the vocals, but solid. But I feel like to really scratch my itch I need to see another performance in some venue with a bit of character.
