Lily Talmers & Monte Pride
Monte Pride is a Michigan-born, Michigan-based folk singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist. His rich tenor voice and accomplished fingerpicking make him sound older than his years, but the enthusiasm he brings to the music and performance is all youthful, impassioned energy. That energy and appreciation shine through in his writing, every phrase weaving and winding to form a complex array of song. Monte draws inspiration from long-time trailblazing musicians such as Paul Simon and Bob Dylan, as well as contemporary folk genre-benders like The Tallest Man On Earth, Bon Iver, and Frontier Ruckus.
