Deb Montgomery

"Deb’s style reminds me of Joni Mitchell because of the way it feels and because of Deb’s voice, which is a light, airy, expressive instrument that can turn flinty when necessary….Deb is probably one of the best songwriters out there right now. Her lyrics tell stories, speak of love and pain, but always with devastating eloquence.”

"Folk Rock Artist Deb Montgomery Releases New EP All The Water To Rave Reviews"
"Montgomery’s rock roots bring together this edgy energized collection with a raw passion. It works and it’s superb. The more than twenty years and four studio albums, film credits, and stage appearances with superbly talented musicians, grounds and solidifies Deb Montgomery in the rock industry.”
Sherryl Craig, Nashville Music Guide,

“Montgomery showcases an electric evolution on her new EP titled All the Water. The Seattle folk-rocker channels the virtue of Neil Young, the bravado of Patti Smith and the vulnerability of Conor Oberst on this tender yet triumphant five song EP.”

"On her new EP, All the Water, Deb Montgomery digs in the dirt while reaching a new height of passion, musicality,
and connection with her audience. The five dirges that comprise her newest effort drip with an engulfing sound that
lifts up, while never overpowering the emotionality of her voice. Although at times intimate and mournful, her songs
are lifted by an ambitious arrangement of tightly composed music. At the center of the EP, her voice powerfully and
confidently delivers the central melodies. As a musician, singer, songwriter, and band leader, Montgomery has never
been on more confident footing, and with good reason. The EP is a career achievement and an advancement on an
already impressive catalogue of songs."
Elijah Dhaaven, Songwriter, Tobias the Owl (Seattle, WA)

Deb Montgomery has grown accustomed to dwelling in life’s in-between spaces: her art, much like her life, welds together what the world likes to separate. Her lyrics are spools of vulnerability and grit, her voice is an unwavering paradox of grief and joy, and her presence is a palpable strength in weakness. Over the course of twenty years and four records, some film credits, and the pleasure of sharing stages with a plethora of amazing musicians, Montgomery has solidified her ability to write and play with unreserved passion. Fluent in the language of mourning and loss, lament and prayer, raging seas and the ache at the heart of things, Montgomery’s music is a river of empathy, coaxing us towards self-reflection and healing.
