Ray Montford is a very talented Ottawa-born composer and guitarist, with nine albums under his belt.  He also finds himself in the role of a producer and engineer at his state-of-the-art studio called Anchor Sound, near Wakefield, Quebec, where he records his own music as well as other musicians.  I had the pleasure of hearing Ray perform at an intimate live show in downtown Toronto around 2012, while he was touring to promote his “Vintage Is Now” album.  Ray’s skillful guitar playing and the atmosphere of the live venue left a memorable and long lasting impression on me.  Six years later, in 2018, Ray released his eight studio album called “Share My Sky”.  This album explores the themes of loss, grief, trauma, compassion, forgiveness and love – through gentle, flowing guitar compositions that are a great pleasure to listen to – especially on a high quality audio system.  Toward the end of 2018, I decided to catch up with Ray and ask him a few questions about the new album.
