“Where You Find Love is a "sophisticated effort... some of the best music heard from a Columbus artist."”

"...a strong feel of Creedence, Bruce, Petty.. the lyrics have a more pure feel than some of the songs today."

"For his latest, Where You Find Love, Monta shifted his gaze inward, turning out deeply felt songs steeped in regret, heartache, loss and redemption....[but] Monta is never truly alone on Where You Find Love."

"...a faithful practitioner upholding time-honored traditions."

"Matt Monta and the Hot Coal Band play like a five-headed, gin-drunk hound dog growling in the face of contemporary over-produced plastic-pop music."

"...we’re giving thanks to the people who actually make original music—and the Columbus music scene—interesting. Cheers to them, because songwriting ain’t as easy as they make it look.

“Monta talks about his show, his work and his passion for music.”
