Album Notes
With his charming stage presence and natural gift for bold, melodic bass lines, John Montagna is one of New York City's most sought-after bass guitarists and vocalists. But when he's not providing some lucky Big Apple-based artist with a world-class pocket, he's busy writing, performing and recording his own genre-defying music that serves as the ideal context for his fiery bass playing.

On John's latest CD, "Senza," his bass guitar is the glue that holds a diverse collection of musical elements together. Playing and singing all of the parts himself, John treats the listener to angelic vocal harmonies, tasty acoustic and electric guitars, and a mix of electronic and live drums. The results demand your full attention; this is pop music for people who remember what it's like to listen to an entire album side from beginning to end.

Montagna's Best Yet!
It amazes me how each of John's releases just seem to get better and better. On his latest release, Senza , the music, the lyrics, the production, and all-around quality are absolutely outstanding! John really gives 110% on every song from the incredibly emotive "Oblivious" to the simple but elegantly harmonious "You are Safe", to the slightly more edgy "Stone In the Water", you will not be disappointed. My one complaint is that there are only 5 songs and it leaves me wanting more...

I loved your CD! Hope to see you perform real soon.

A Definitive Statement on the Album in Shortform!
While I have heard a number of EP's from artists, my favorites tend to be the more cohesive efforts like Rashmi Singh's Rainstorm and Lowlight's Bloodline. However, John Montagna's SENZA achieves a degree of cohesion on par with many long-play concept albums. SENZA unfolds with a smart pop song, then a solo bass with vocal, a tremendous three part progressive odyssey, solo bass with supportive vocal harmonies, and finally an uplifting pop melody to bring everything full circle. While I have really enjoyed Four Eighteen's PLEASANT TENSION and his debut ENJOY YOUR DESSERT, SENZA is thus far John Montagna's finest hour! By trimming the fat wherever it was found, there is not a single weak moment to detract from the listening experience once one has taken SENZA in a few times. "Stone in the Water" alone is worth the price of the whole, a progressive epic that chronicles the life of a stone traveling the ocean currents before vanishing from the effects of erosion. And best of all, the physical product is a beautifully designed cardboard foldout that is Christmas gift quality. If you have never entered the world of John Montagna, this is where the rabbit hole begins...

I bought this CD for one of my friends for her birthday and she LOVED it! She especially liked the song Stone in the Water! Keep those great songs coming John!

John, great CD. My only regret was that it was too short. But then again, quality over quantity. Do keep up the good work, and we're looking forward to seeing you and the APLP boys come through Houston one of these days. In the meantime, see you on the Internet.
