Monte Pride at The Robin
Time & Location
About The Event
7PM doors / 7:30 show.
"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."
"Pride writes at a tempo that regulates the pulse, and he finds melodies that sound somewhere between a lullaby and a hymn, patiently arranging all the words for a comprehensive summoning of empathy." - Jeff Milo (Current Magazine)
"Echoes of classic late-60s / early-70s folk greats like Phil Ochs, Ralph McTell, and Roy Harper are filtered through his fleet fingerstyle guitar work and Michigan-anchored heart. It's the kind of calming, big-hearted music we need right now..." - Timothy Monger
$20 in advance (tickets unlikely to be available at the door)
