A private person, Ray LaMontagne believes in letting his music do the talking. On 2004’s grassroots hit Trouble, which went on to quietly sell in excess of 250,000 copies, this meant telling his tale through vintage American soul and folk, night after night for two years of touring. On his new album ‘Til the Sun Turns Black, some of the same influences—Tim Buckley, Nick Drake, Stephen Stills—remain. But the songs are, if anything, darker yet more passionate, and resonate more deeply. Rough and silken, panoramic and local, ’Til the Sun Turns Black is an engaging, sometimes harrowing record of uncompromising lyrical vignettes set to horn-warmed soul classicism, vintage U.S. R & B and Americana folk-country. The winner of Esquire magazine’s 2006 Best Voice Award, LaMontagne is one of the most acclaimed new singer-songwriters in recent memory.
