Ryan Montbleau, who has been recording and touring as both a solo act and bandleader for much of the last 15 years, moves people. A gifted songwriter, he has developed a very special history and bond to a deeply-rooted fanbase that now stretches all over the United States and beyond. Montbleau’s transcendent songcraft and powerful, uplifting voice can tackle intense topics just as easily as expressing life’s simple, everyday joys. He continues to speak to a generation of fans who have been along for his rise. Like an intense, slow-burning wildfire, Montbleau has toured relentlessly and connected with audiences night after night, year after year.

A self-described late-bloomer, Montbleau didn’t start singing until he was 21 years old while attending his final semsester of college at Villanova University. “I had been playing guitar night and day during those years and eventually I was studying poetry very seriously and writing poetry of my own. Once I started to sing, all of those elements came into alignment I knew what I wanted to do.” In 2003, he formed the Ryan Montbleau Band, which spent 10 solid years on the road until disbanding in 2013 after countless successful national tours, three studio records, and a double-live album recorded in partnership with Boston-based Life is good.

“Currently I am a band of one,” Montbleau said in 2014. “I had an amazing group of guys on the road for a decade. We drove about 60,000 miles a year and played 200 shows a year. But last year we closed that chapter of our musical lives. We’ll see what the future brings. In the meantime I’m continuing to play solo, as I have always loved to do. And I’m excited to be putting together new band configurations. It’s all taking me back to the center of who I am as a performer and as a songwriter and who I want to be as an artist.
