The past year has been one joyful experience after another, including gigging for a month in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, touring near Charlottesville, Virginia, and playing my hometown of Kansas City. Through my travels I have been fortunate to meet and hang with some of the best people on the planet! To all of them, thanks for your friendship and warmth. I will be returning to Mexico again in February and March. Watch for gig listings there and come down and hang with me on the island! I have two beautifully produced CDs for sale!
My latest release “Easyville – American Stories” was recently reviewed by Michael Byars, music coordinator at KCUR 89.3fm in Kansas City:
“There couldn't be a better-titled album than "Easyvillle - American Stories", as Mark Montgomery offers eleven gentle tales of acoustic balladry that share the sounds of blues, folk, and country. At times wistful, other times jaunty, but always heartfelt, Montgomery delivers with vocals and arrangements that are smooth as the honey he sells on the side. Dust off the porch, chill a few beverages, invite some friends over, and let "Easyville - American Stories" be the soundtrack to shared good times.”
