Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Ray LaMontagne is set to embark on his Just Passing
Through acoustic tour this fall. The 25-date tour marks the first acoustic tour for Ray in five years and
will be highlighting songs from his vast and varying body of work. Ray will be joined by John Stirratt
from Wilco on acoustic bass and the duo will be playing songs spanning across Trouble, Till The Sun
Turns Black, Gossip in the Grain, God Willin’ & The Creek Don’t Rise, Supernova and Ouroboros.

On his last acoustic tour, critics across the US were raving about his performance. Consequence of Sound
said, “Hearing Ray LaMontagne perform live is a poignant and magical experience,” while The Boston
Herald raved, “LaMontagne’s voice remains a marvel, quiet and reflective one minute and forceful and
impassioned the next. It really is an amazing instrument.”


Ray LaMontagne has released six studio albums, five of which have reached Top 10 on Billboard’s Top
Rock Albums chart and Billboard’s Digital Albums chart. Additionally, Ray’s 2010 album God Willin’ &
the Creek Don’t Rise won the Grammy for Best Folk Album and was nominated in the coveted Song of
The Year category for “Beg Steal or Borrow.”


Each release from his catalogue over the last 13 years carries its own character and feel. Having worked
with producers Ethan Johns, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and Jim James of My Morning Jacket,
Ray’s vast sonic catalogue has been called everything from “a perfect throwback to the lost art of the
album-length format,” from Entertainment Weekly to “epic and magical,” from Rolling Stone and
“gorgeous and ambitious,” from Esquire. NPR’s All Things Considered said that Ray throughout the
course of his career “has continued to push himself in different directions,” while People called Ray a
“marvel of nature.”
