"Smoking songs and heavy hitting guitar full of fire and passion...Montoya’s rough-edged voice is filled with feeling. Bluesy, powerful and unpredictable...[It]really gets the blood flowing." –Blues Music Magazine
After playing with icons like Albert Collins and John Mayall and over a five-decade-plus carrer, Coco Montoya has become an influential, charting, award-winning blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. His biting tone melds raucous yet melodic Chicago blues and vintage R&B with soulful vocals. He possesses a unique, left-handed playing style that brings funky Latin rhythms, roots rock, and jazz into electric blues.
Now, with the dynamic Writing On The Wall and a tour calendar busting at the seams, Coco Montoya is as excited as he’s ever been to perform the new songs live with his burning-hot band. Montoya’s well-earned reputation as an eye-popping live performer precedes him. Vintage Guitar states, “Coco keeps getting better and better. He plays with fire and passion rarely seen in this day and age.” Billboard declares, “In a world of blues guitar pretenders, Coco Montoya is the real McCoy. He exudes power and authenticity. Be prepared to get scorched by the real thing.”
