Live From the Artists Den

Ray Lamontagne And The Pariah Dogs

Season 3, Episode 2 of 6

Born in New Hampshire, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne came to music in one fell swoop: while working in a shoe factory in his twenties, he woke up to the Stephen Stills song "Tree Top Flyer" on the radio and had an epiphany this was his life's calling. Five years later, in 2004, his debut album, Trouble, was released on RCA to much acclaim, including numerous notable cover versions of its title track. LaMontagne has built a devoted following ever since, over the course of three more studio albums including his 2010 release with The Pariah Dogs, God Willin' and the Creek Don't Rise, which reached No. 1 on Billboard's Rock, Independent, and Folk charts. The historic Don Strange Ranch in Boerne, Texas provided a fitting setting for folk troubadour Ray LaMontagne and his band, the Pariah Dogs, on a cool autumn night. Culminating the tour celebrating their latest album, God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise, the group performed in the ranch's beautiful Kendall Creek Barn before a crowd of four hundred fans who came from all corners of the country to attend.
