[Monte Montgomery performed live on Austin City Limits, airing with Bruce Hornsby, 1999] “Monte Montgomery blows people away. There’s no other way to describe it... (he) makes his strings produce sounds that obliterate notions of what one human is capable of pulling off on this simple instrument. Glance around the room wherever he plays and witness wall-to-wall looks of sheer slack-jawed astonishment.” -– Terry Lickona, Producer, AUSTIN CITY LIMITS, PBS-TV http://www.pbs.org/klru/austin/artists/program57.html

"The gifted guitar wizard... Monte Montgomery embodies everything that a six-string hero from Austin should, but dares to be different by not using a Stratocaster or any other kind of electric guitar. In a city that reared Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson and Chris Duarte, such affinity for an acoustic guitar is almost sacriligious, but Montgomery proves he's a devout follower of his predecessors by wowing audiences, who can't believe how electrifying his shows really are. With ‘1st and Repair’, the 30 year old guitar slinger took matters one step further, showcasing his singing and songwriting talents. The combination of his sandy voice and loose, laid-back,fingerpicking guitar style has earned comparisons to Mark Knopfler and Bruce Cockburn, but his connection to the fabled Texas town of Luckenbach -– he spent his teens there -– and his heartfelt, soulful approach to sonwriting have made him a uniquely Lone Star figure." -– Chris Riemenschneider, BILLBOARD Magazine
