BEN MONTAGUE

<< back to the line up page

The foundations for Montague’s success have been thorough and painstaking, his self-fuelled hard work finally leading to his current impressive momentum. Hand-picked as tour support by acclaimed guitarist Joe Bonamassa, Montague found himself catapulted from playing small clubs to audiences of thousands. Racing supremo Eddie Jordan was impressed enough to invite him to perform in front of 18,000 people at Silverstone as part of his all-star band alongside rock legends Roger Daltrey and Nick Mason. Elsewhere, thousands of international travelers were treated to his residency at Heathrow’s Terminal 5.

Musically, it takes the influence of a range of classic singer-songwriting legends and gives them a youthful and distinctly 21st Century twist. The results combine elegantly crafted melodic guitar hooks reminiscent of Maroon 5, The Feeling and the mature, resurrected Take That, all blended with modern takes on the brash, showy talents of 70s-era Elton John, the brooding intensity of Eric Clapton and the charismatic showmanship of Queen.
