Join acclaimed guitarist Ray Montford, as he releases his new studio album, ‘Share My Sky’, with an intimate solo performance, in this beautiful space, with guests, Sheena Turcotte - vocals and Deborah Thompson - piano
Ray Montford’s new and long-awaited seventh studio album, Share My Sky, is the acclaimed guitarist’s first recording in six years. Exploring the themes of loss, grief, trauma, compassion, forgiveness and love, Montford has expanded his sonic range and compositional depth to offer his most personal and emotional statement to date. Collaborating with singer/songwriter Lynn Moffatt, he co-wrote Deliver Me, a song that embodies the universal feelings of loneliness and belonging, while specifically shining light on the fate of refugees who strive to land in a safe place - a topical theme in these troubled times. The strong presence of singers Sheena Turcotte and Anouk Michelle-Grégoire on this recording (a first in Ray’s career) lends tremendous poignancy to songs Alive and Let Your River Flow, while the album’s profoundly reflective title track, composed upon his return from Bali, rates as one of the most evocative melodies the guitarist has ever written.
