The new album, American Rhymin, has officially been
released and is available for download on CDBaby (www.cdbaby.com/cd/mattmonta) and on iTunes. Heck,
you can even listen to it on Spotify if you're so inclined. I hope you'll take
a moment to get a copy of the disc or your favorite tracks.
The release was celebrated
last Saturday night at the Tree Bar in Columbus, Ohio. Come this morning, I was
still reeling from such an amazing night. So, I wanted to write and THANK YOU
for all of your continued support and encouragement for my playing music. If it
weren't for friends and fans like you all, I wouldn't be able to do things
like put out an album or perform on a regular basis.
Now, you may have also wondered...
"Matt, who were all those awesome musicians that performed on the night of
your album release?" Here they are. Check 'em out and pick up their albums
too. They've been huge inspirations to me.

So that's that. Please don't be stranger. Feel free to shoot

Thanks again for everything. You make this
old dog feel worth his salt some days.
