Monte's new, sophomore album, “Even in Absence," was released on August 21, 2020. The record, postponed from April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, presents healing songs to remind that experience, relationships, lives, their love and light persist, “Even In Absence”. Themes of loss & resilience, trial & growth, culmination & change surface at the album’s center as Pride’s rich tenor voice, vivid songwriting, accomplished fingerstyle guitar technique, and lush arrangements spellbind. Monte Pride tracked the songs over a 12-month period throughout the state of Michigan. The album involved many active artists in the state’s music community, featuring Sam Cooper, Brandon & Bethany Foote (Gifts or Creatures), Drew Howard, Mark Lavengood, Max Lockwood (May Erlewine, Big Dudee Roo), Laurel Premo (Red Tail Ring), and others. Pride worked at La Luna Recording & Sound in Kalamazoo with Ian Gorman, Third Coast Recording Company in Grand Haven with Joe Hettinga, Big Sky Recording in Ann Arbor with Elan Dantus and Timothy Monger, and Troubadour Recording Studio in Lansing with Jon Herrmann.
