By Ray LaMontagne
'You Are The Best Thing' is the new single from Ray LaMontagne, taken from his critically hailed third album 'Gossip In The Grain.'
With a voice that could have complimented any of the blues greats throughout the ages, Ray LaMontagne will be hitting the road with an eleven stop tour across the UK. Playing sold out Concert Halls and Opera Houses, it's obvious where Ray feels comfortable and at home with his music, and indeed just what settings compliment said music.
You feel yourself affected by every element of 'You Are The Best Thing.' Foot tapping starts, and you attempt to impersonate his unique vocals. The deep droning of Ray's voice combined with the joyful choral backing vocals flourishes through the music system, and I'm positive that those lucky enough to have tickets for the tour will be delighted and in for a treat. Spanning genres from rustic folk, to cross country blues with a bit of wooden porch country to bridge the gap, Ray LaMontagne is a talented musician who keeps getting better and better - backed up by his most successful album yet 'Gossip In The Grain.'
