The songs are true works of art, gems in the rough that have been presented
to the listener for their own interpretation and value.
If you’re looking for music that fights for its individual living, breathing place in this realm,
you owe it to yourself to listen to Song By Song By Song.~Aquarian Weekly

The sound of MMB (Mike Montrey Band) has a rugged outline — awareness of life’s tremors pepper the lyrics, sung with a tenor that both trembles and soars, seemingly made for this kind of poetry. Yet it’s the high-spirited melodies and flowing, exploratory warmth of the musicianship that keep this six-piece from settling anywhere near easy classification; “indie acoustic singer-songwriter,” “sultry, jazzy zouk” or “roots” could aptly be applied at any given performance.
Lively and infectious melodies have been a mainstay of Mike Montrey Band, and their newest release, Song By Song By Song, attests to that fact. Mike Montrey (guitar, vocals) pours himself into each track, delivering soulful vocals while perfectly adding exceptional guitar playing. Jen Augustine (vocals) contributes a warm, rich voice while Duke (bass, vocals) and Karl Dietel (keyboard, piano, vocals) complete the vocal quartet to produce the lush harmonies on tracks such as “Therapeutic Bliss” and “The Sunshine.” Adam Garnys (saxophone) gives Mike Montrey Band a unique, funky presence, while Rob Smith (drums) drives the rhythm section with an impressive repertoire of musical stylings.
Each song on Song By Song By Song was crafted individually and subsequently released as a single, some with an accompanying video, all over the course of 15 months. This production strategy allowed the project to take on a life of its own, and over a year’s worth of life experience can be found reflected in this album. Despite being released individually, the tracks sound as if they were written and recorded together, and the album flows from beginning to end.
