Critically-acclaimed Canadian guitarist-composer, Ray Montford, unveils his sixth album, a fragile balance, his most cinematic to date.
Inspired by a series of unforeseen events, this is a soulful exploration of life’s journeys, highlighted by Montford’s buttery blues/rock electric tones and deft acoustic fingerstyle work. Beginning with the haunting melody of Honour This Land, the album builds to a peak of rock orchestration in the epic When Darkness Takes Flight, propelled by powerful drumming reminiscent of the late John Bonham. Dynamically recorded with sparse arrangements and great sonics, the result is a cohesive tale of a mature artist. This is instrumental music that commands to be heard - at a healthy volume - offering a depth that will reveal new insights with each listen.

This live recording lovingly showcases the creativity and inventiveness of Ray Montford’s trio with drummer Rob Greenway and bassist Ian de Souza. Captured in one night within the warm acoustics of the Alumnae theatre in Toronto, the performances are both intimate and dynamic with added improvisational elements. In the middle of the sequence, Ray premieres a new and engaging solo acoustic tune entitled Wonder.


Musical guests include Mary Hanson on keyboards and cellist Monica Fedrigo who weaves her sound around Ray’s acoustic guitar for a few duet numbers.
