After years of trying to hit it big in various bands throughout his teenage years, Dave Montana has now moved forward as a solo pop rock artist with an album titled, "Such Things As Love and Pain". With vocal stylings that are reminiscent of 80s pop rock singers his music is a nice mix of toe tapping pop music to more serious guitar rock. Check it out.
Dave Montana is one of the newer breed of musicians who create music independently. The vision and the voice are his own, and there's plenty to like about it all..

How is one to describe the talents of artist Dave Montana? Just listen to the songwriter/musician new effort "Such Things As Love and Pain" and you will get the answer. The cd features everything from straight ahead rock-and-roll to dance remixes of several of the featured tracks. The album has a very personal feel, as Dave pours his heart into such tracks as "I Want Someone", "Walking on a Thin Line" and "I Love You (Mother's Song)". My favorite tracks include "I Don't Believe in Love" and "Burning Inside", both of which are fine examples of top-notch songwriting. In addition, the track "Collecting Dust" could be a sleeper hit if given the chance. Be sure to latch onto this release from Dave Montana for a fine example of a multi-talented artist.
