RAY LAMONTAGNE & THE PARIAH DOGS
“Impassioned, old-fashioned soul-blues, and all the better for it” – Uncut
“Some of the best songs of his career” – The Guardian
“Nostalgic, bluesey country-folk sound that conjures up the spirits of Neil Young and Willie Nelson” – Daily Telegraph
Ray LaMontagne and his band The Pariah Dogs have announced details of their first full scale UK tour in support of the album God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise.
Entirely self produced (for the first time) God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise was recorded in two weeks at LaMontagne’s home in the woods of western Massachusetts. The newly restored historic home served as a homemade recording studio for Ray and his fellow musicians.
The newly coined ‘Pariah Dogs’ consists of Jay Bellarose (drums), Jennifer Condos (bass), Patrick Warren (keyboard), Eric Heywood (guitar) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar). Individually, these musicians have contributed to the live work of such heralded musicians including Beck, Joe Henry, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams and Joe Cocker to name a few of their career highlights.
