"What the reviewers are saying about their music:"

"Somehow theyʼve managed to capture that early pop sound, a sound that so many in the modern music scene have tried to revive. They captured the sound and they pushed it further, a feat in any genre." - Dingus
"I dig the sound that Layne Montgomery creates, and he seems to be having a lot of fun, even when heʼs singing about heartbreak." - Music Defined
"Described in 5 words: Catchy, fun songs about stuff" - the 405
"Their raw Arctic Monkeys-meets-Beach Boys sound...[is] a testament that these guys need to be signed. This album canʼt be missed; itʼs filled with beautiful lyrics, catchy music thatʼll bring back memories of favorite 60ʼs rock bands, and a stellar rhythm section that pushes that 60ʼs rock sound forward into the 21st century." - Cracked Vinyl -


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Layne Montgomery Paper Company-Let’s Be Sad Together

Rising from the ashes of beloved Brooklyn drunk-rockers The Great American Novel,  Layne Montgomery Paper Company is the brainchild of Layne Montgomery, Pete Kilpin, Aidan Shepard and Max Miller. They released the Let's Be Sad Together EP (produced by former Passion Pit and Team Spirit member Ayad Al Adhamy) in late 2016 through New Jersey-based label Rhyme and Reason Records. The band is currently building up a following in their hometown of New York, while working on their full-length LP at Diamond City Studio with Ayad Al Adhamy.

The Band Members

Layne Montgomery, a Las Vegas native, has been in bands since he was 12, including
one with his father. He is most known as the driving force for The Great American Novel
which had big success in the Brooklyn indie music scene. He has collaborated with
teen pop stars Nat & Alex Wolff and Harlem Shakes drummer Brent Katz. When not
writing catchy pop songs he is glued to iTunes listening to obscure comedy podcasts.
He currently lives in NYC.

Aidan Shepard has been drumming since the age of 5, with the Beatles and the Whobeing his childhood musical heroes. At 13 he heard Metallica's "Master of Puppets" andbecame obsessed with heavy metal. Moving to New York in 2009 he pursued metalmusic with multiple bands, while simultaneously becoming entrenched in the DIY indierock scene with the band The Great American Novel. His musical endeavors since then have run the gamut from Americana to Latin Jazz. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Max Michael Miller, (the best friend/bassist) was born and raised in New York City.When he’s not acting, he’s making music. Layne and he have been in bands together for ten years. Layne Montgomery Paper Company  is one of them.
