Biography:

“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.” – Billboard

Moving effortlessly between deep, soul-baring vocals, subtly melodic guitar playing, and slash-and-burn pyrotechnics, Coco Montoya’s nearly four-decade career has grown from drumming for blues icon Albert Collins to holding the lead guitar spot in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers to leading his own band and touring worldwide.

With his new album, Writing On The Wall, Montoya delivers what he is already calling one of the best records he’s ever made. He decided to bring his road-tested band—noted keyboardist and songwriter Jeff Paris (Keb’ Mo’, Bill Withers), bassist Nathan Brown, and drummer Rena Beavers—into the studio with him.

Between the camaraderie of the long-time bandmates and the sheer talent of all involved, the results have left Coco, in his words, “over the moon.”
