Singer, songwriter and bandleader Ryan Montbleau will release his new live album, ‘Woodstock Sessions,’ on October 26th. Recorded in December 2017 at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, New York as a part of Woodstock Sessions’ ongoing live-in-studio releases, the album features selections with special guests Tall Heights and is the best showcase yet of the New England-based musician’s mastery of acoustic songwriting and performance developed over a successful fifteen-year career.

‘Woodstock Sessions’ includes several of Montbleau’s most well known songs from over six different previous releases, in addition to three previously unreleased tracks: “Looking Glass,” “The Country and the Town” and “Help Me.” Electro-folk duo and frequent collaborators Tall Heights back Montbleau on over half of the album’s other tracks, including the singles “Looking Glass” and “All or Nothing.” ‘Woodstock Sessions’ marks the beginning of a new era of Montbleau’s career, which both continues to grow while coming full-circle; Montbleau having recorded some of his earliest records at this very same studio in upstate New York.

Watch Montbleau perform “Looking Glass” live with Tall Heights:


‘Woodstock Sessions’ captures Montbleau in his element at an exciting time in his career, with over one million monthly Spotify listeners and plans to embark on a cross-country solo acoustic tour in support of the new release. Montbleau’s cover of Tracy Chapman’s classic “Fast Car” has become a Spotify hit too, with over 31 million streams and counting. Touring relentlessly for 15 years, both with a full band and solo, Ryan has shared the stage with Mavis Staples, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Ani DiFranco, The Wood Brothers and more. His intimate songwriting prowess and dynamic voice channel fellow troubadours Ray LaMontagne, Josh Ritter and Shakey Graves while also playing with the pop sensibilities and storytelling of early John Mayer, Amos Lee and the Avett Brothers.

Montbleau’s fall tour features both intimate solo performances as well as a handful of electrifying full band shows in addition to plans for a forthcoming full-band project. More details to come soon.
