Bio

If this is the age of the outsider, Kristian Montgomery might be starting to fit in... but don't tell him that. Montgomery grew up poor, prefers to catch his own meals on the waters off Cape Cod and has always felt his music defies genre. A lack of belonging colors his worldview, and he wouldn't have it any other way. The battle between searching for common ground and accepting his otherness informs much of his songwriting. On his second pandemic release, Prince of Poverty (out 3/5), Montgomery and his winterkill band pursue an edgier sound than on last year's The Gravel Church, which was largely penned while he served out a prison sentence. From the Replacements-reminiscent barroom swagger of "Don't Call Me Baby" to the clanging anthem, "They'll Remember My Name," and the jangly hooks through "That Kind of Love," the band oozes no nonsense, authentic blue-collar spirit that's keenly balanced with clever songwriting. The brooding defiance in "Soul for Soul" puts the focus on Montgomery's grunge-crooner vocals, while the banjo-propelled gallop of both "Working Hands" and "American Fire" show off the band's rootsy foundation. Uninspired by the recent turns in the world of mainstream country, Montgomery and Co. take their Americana into a space that's simultaneously restless, rugged, and ragged, while still plenty infectious. It's an impressive tightrope act.
