Ray LaMontagne

Singer/songwriter Ray LaMontagne resides in the hinterlands of Maine and lives a very private life. He’s reclusive and shies from the spotlight. But his voice is powerful and commanding in the vein of Van Morrison and Tim Buckley and he has recently released his 4th album God Willin’ and the Creek Don’t Rise. (n.b. this phrase was first uttered by Benjamin Hawkins, a statesman from North Carolina and a member of the first U.S. Senate. Spike Lee used these words for the title of his recent documentary on New Orleans and legendary radio morning man Charles Laquidara from Boston signed off with these words after every show.) One of my favorite tracks from the album is “Beg Steal or Borrow”. Here exclusively is an acoustic version of that song.
