The contemporary yet timeless feel of Kevin's own music is strongly influenced by the 'California Country-Rock' of artists like Gram Parsons, The Eagles, and Roger McGuinn, his deeply resonant songwriting recalls the Americana-flavored storytelling of Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne. Having spent the last four years of a decade-long career touring relentlessly and building an almost cult-like following in England and Europe, Kevin Montgomery offers up thirteen engaging stories of life, love, laughter and loss on his third album, 2:30am.
When Kevin recorded 2:30am, he knew the sound he was going for. To get the balance right, top shelf studio musicians such as pianist Matt Rollings, bassist Glenn Worf and drummer Chad Cromwell joined Al Perkins and Bob Britt to approach some of the more subtle songs, while Robert Reynolds and Paul Deakin of The Mavericks joined to put their vibe on half a dozen songs. Adding to the staggering collection of guest talent on 2:30am, Trisha Yearwood contributes impeccable backing vocals to the album's rousing lead track, 'Tennessee Girl', and Lee Ann Womack lends her voice to 'I Can't Drive You From My Mind', a track co-produced by Kevin's father, Bob Montgomery.
