The story of Ray Lamontagne is a story of inspiration. Inspiration is needed in order to move forward in terms of writing songs and playing music. This is the main ingredient in Ray Lamontagne’s history that is irreplaceable. His inspiration was Stephen Stills who was a member of the famous Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and also considered as one of the best guitarist of the time. This artist is the reason for the birth of another great artist like Ray Lamontagne.
Ray’s father was inclined to music but he did not pay attention to this in the beginning, instead, he preferred reading fantasy novels in a place where there was no one to disturb him such as the forest. His journey never came to the point of singing easily since after graduation, this brilliant boy worked in a shoe company.
Lamontagne’s musical influences are determined in his style of singing and way of compositions. His influences are Richard Manuel, Stephen Stills, and Rick Danko where he patterned his style and musicality. The rudiments of the music of these people are the culprit to Lamontagne’s desire to play and sing. Aside from performing anywhere, Ray is also involved in tutorials.
His debut album’s most remarkable achievement is winning four awards such as Boston Music Awards which awarded him Best male singer/songwriter, Album of the Year and Song of the Year. These awards are what make Ray Lamontagne worth emulating. The BRIT Awards, MOJO Awards and Esquire are some who gave awards and nominated Lamontagne.
Ray Lamontagne’s description of himself is that he is a “very private person.” This means that there are so many things about him that he would prefer keeping it to himself alone. He has so many gigs and shows as well but this humble musician and singer would seldom appear in interviews and other related things. He is also a very idealistic man since he performed for the flood victims of the local Nashville, TN. His song “empty” has appeared in so many films and programs – The Conspirator, Detachment, Live from Abbey Road. The humility and simplicity of this musician lead the people to like him and patronage all the programs where Ray is shown.
