Late To The Party

John Montagna

8 writing demos got restless after months trapped in hard drive, so they got themselves dolled up for a night out on the town. Plenty of tasty hooks and bass solos. Lyrics about insecurity, self-awareness and gentrification. And I discover synthesizers!

Pleasant Tension

Four Eighteen

In cart Not available Out of stock

The 2002 "Four Eighteen" band lineup, captured in the studio (mostly) live: Rich Zukor on drums, "Cousin" Joe Montagna on guitar, and Alfredo Hidrovo on percussion. Funky world-rock, abstract poetry, and gobs of juicy Gibson bass lines.

My solo debut. Written as I was just finding myself as a songwriter; recorded in the East Village of NYC in the summer of 1997. Sixteen tracks of 25-year-old me, doing almost everything myself!

Senza

John Montagna

In cart Not available Out of stock

5 songs, with the bass up front (where it belongs). Recorded over a 2-year period in between tour dates with APLP. Bass Player Magazine's April 2009 issue called it "...the blueprint for a bassist/singer/songwriter's place in a world usually occupied by guitarists and pianists...every tune on here is a special treasure for bassists and songwriting aficionados alike." Fun Fact: "Stone In The Water" can be heard in the background of Key And Peele's "Obama: The College Years" sketch.
