Coco Montoya
Generously Sponsored by Steve's Quality Painting.

Montoya earned his status as a master guitarist and soul-powered vocalist through years of paying his dues as a sideman with Collins (first as a drummer) and then with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, before launching his solo career in 1993. Five years of constant touring with Collins and ten years with Mayall turned him into a monster player and dynamic performer. Montoya has released eight solo albums—including three for Alligator between 2000 and 2007—and has played at clubs, concert halls and major festivals all over the world. Guitar Player says Montoya plays "stunning, powerhouse blues with a searing tone, emotional soloing, and energetic, unforced vocals.”

Coco returns to Alligator Records with Hard Truth (2017) a sparkling new release that reaffirms his place on the top shelf of contemporary rocking bluesmen. From the ecstatic, just-fell-in-love shuffle "I Want To Shout About It” to the scorching "Hard As Hell” to the patented Albert Collins funk of "Moon Is Full,” Coco‘s soul-burning mastery of hard-hitting, long-lasting blues-rock is on full display. Produced by Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt, Curtis Salgado, Taj Mahal) and featuring slide guitar master Leroy Parnell on "Lost In The Bottle.” "Montoya is a show-stopper...Heartfelt singing and merciless guitar with a wicked icy burn...one of the truly gifted blues artists of his generation.” –Living Blues
