Deb Montgomery Stirs The Soul With The New EP “All the Water”
With a deeply emotive and timeless sound, Deb Montgomery continues to release incredible and multifaceted music. Increasingly active in the Seattle music scene after many years on stage in New York City and Toronto, Deb Montgomery finds herself concocting some of the best music of her long and storied career. Her newest album All The Water is a testament to the songstress’ mindblowing talent.
Dulcet vocals pair perfectly with gorgeous instrumentation in this breathtaking 5 track EP. Heart-wrenching lyrics come to the forefront on tracks like “Wake Me” and “Dig For Diamonds.” Ethereal strings and thick percussion are staples of the EP but Montgomery’s powerful vocals are the centrepiece of this latest release and lovers of timeless music will devour every second of All The Water.
All the Water attempts to invite the listener to “Hold On” while feeling the paradox that is both faith and falling, vulnerability and grit. A true offering of life’s staggering beauty and persistent hardships, All the Water finds and fills the cracks of the listener’s heart.
Deb Montgomery has grown accustomed to dwelling in life’s in-between spaces: her art, much like her life, welds together what the world likes to separate. Her lyrics are spools of vulnerability and grit, her voice is an unwavering paradox of grief and joy, and her presence is a palpable strength in weakness. Over the course of twenty years and four studio records, some film credits, and the pleasure of sharing stages with a plethora of amazing musicians, Montgomery has solidified her ability to write and play with unreserved passion.
