Ray Lamontagne releases "Supernova"
A Supernova is said to be an explosion that briefly outshines the entire galaxy, radiating as much energy in that moment as the Sun emits over its entire life span. "Supernova" also happens to be the title of Ray LaMontagne's latest album, and much like its true definition, shined bright when it was issued at the end of April 2014.
"Supernova" was LaMontagne's fifth album and was produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and garnered extremely positive reception from music critics. One noted that "A casual listen might dismiss [the record] as mere nostalgia," however the "pairing [of] Auerbach's detailed, careful production with LaMontagne's open, expertly crafted songwriting and breezy, sensual, emotionally unburdened signing, that boundary is shattered."
The project follows four other LaMontagne albums, including "Trouble," "Til the Sun Turns Black," "Gossip in the Grain," and "God Willin' & the Creek Don't Rise." The latter peaked at number three on the American album charts, and earned LaMontagne his very first Grammy win, for Best Contemporary Folk Album.
Another place LaMontagne is raising eyebrows beyond the studio? The stage. In fact, he recently made headlines when he stopped his concert at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, apparently criticizing an engaged couple in the front row. LaMontagne reportedly stormed off the stage, saying he wouldn't return and start playing again until the couple left. The audience then booed until the couple walked out.
LaMontagne is on tour through the fall, wrapping in November with three consecutive nights at New York's Beacon Theatre.
A History of Ray LaMontagne tickets
When you get Ray LaMontagne tickets be prepared to be moved, inspired, and filled with soul. Ray LaMontagne's famously gravelly voice, combined with his heart-on-his-sleeve style and deeply soulful songs turn an audience into his devotees. Few singer songwriters come off with such honesty and bare vulnerability as Ray LaMontagne. Whether he's singing in front of a crowded arena or by himself on the front porch, you get the feeling he would deliver the same awe-inspiring performance. That's because, for Ray LaMontagne, it's all about the music.
Quitting the Day Job
The story goes, after waking up at 4 a.m. for an early shift at the shoe factory where he worked, to the sounds of Stephen Stills' song 'Treetop Flyer,' LaMontagne decided to quit his factory job and pursue a career as a musician. The son of an abusive musician father, LaMontagne made it a point of staying away from music as a child. But the soul was in him the whole time, as he struggled to finish school and moved to Lewiston, Maine, where he worked in the factory. Since leaving that job behind, Ray LaMontagne has recorded four albums. His debut, Trouble released in 2004, brought him instant success, especially the single 'Trouble,' which became a favorite cover on the TV show American Idol and was featured, along with 'Burn' and 'All the Wild Horses,' on the TV show Rescue Me. Two years later he released Till the Sun Turns Black, which was also a success, in the U.S. and Britain, where LaMontagne has a strong following. Two more successful albums have followed, and Ray LaMontagne shows no signs of easing up on the soul.
