by Montë Mar
Montë Mar’s new album offers a uniquely uplifting, vibrant spirit that can best be described as Californian. The group’s sound is a melting-pot of sonic experiences complete with shimmering synth chords, dreamy guitar lines and lush melodic vocals. It is no surprise that Montë Mar’s influences stem from a wide and colorful palette ranging from The Beach Boys to The Smiths.
Expectations follows Montë Mar’s debut EP Different Place, released independently by the group in 2012. In addition to performing and recording with Montë Mar, all band members work as independent sideman and composers. Brian Green has toured as a guitar player with Michael Bublé and John Legend, in addition to working as a songwriter, producer and musical director in Los Angeles. Kyle Crane is an in-demand studio drummer, working regularly with producers such as Daniel Lanois and Glen Ballard in addition to performing with artists including Neko Case and M. Ward.
