Monte Pride
Monte Pride
Monte Pride is a Michigan-born, Michigan-based singer-songwriter & fingerstyle guitarist whose songs recall the delicate & stirring vocals of Simon & Garfunkel, with guitar-work reminiscent of Nick Drake and The Tallest Man on Earth. He blends haunting melodies with vivid lyricism, bringing stories of love, loss, and longing to life.

Monte Pride’s rich tenor voice and accomplished fingerstyle picking 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 those who have left the path to find new ways like The Tallest Man On Earth, Iron and Wine, The Avett Brothers, and Frontier Ruckus.
