Ray Montford

Ray Montford is a passionate guitarist from Canada and has recently released his third record 'One Step Closer'. He creates acoustic and electric based instrumental guitar music that is melodic, visual and emotional. Other instrumentation includes tabla, durbecki, drums, bass, B-3 and world vocals.

Ray began playing guitar professionally in 1987 and soon developed a reputation among Toronto musicians for his clean, economical style. This led to work as a back-up musician with several of the city's best songwriters and players. Between 1994 and 1996, Ray toured extensively in Canada, the US and Europe with the Juno Award-winning folk/pop group, The Rankins, and in 1997 with Mary Jane Lamond. Any time off found him doing what he loves most: recording and performing his own music. In 1997 he released the critically acclaimed 'shed your skin' and since then has been dedicated to his solo career. His new record 'One Step Closer' features some of Canada's finest musicians. Ray's music continues to get featured prominently in both film and television.
