“Monte Pride is a folk singer-songwriter & fingerstyle guitarist whose songs recall the delicate vocals of Simon & Garfunkel, with guitar-work reminiscent of Nick Drake and The Tallest Man on Earth.
His new album presents healing songs to remind that experience, relationships, lives, their love and light persist, “Even In Absence”. Themes of loss & resilience, trial & growth, accumulation & change surface at the album’s center as Pride’s rich tenor voice, vivid songwriting, accomplished guitar technique, and lush arrangements spellbind. The album was mixed by Ian Gorman at La Luna Recording & Sound in Kalamazoo, MI, and features Samantha Cooper, Brandon Foote & Bethany Turner-Foote, Drew Howard, Benjy Joung, Mark Lavengood, Max Lockwood, Laurel Premo, and Lily Talmers.”
