Ray LaMontagne is particularly known for his raspy voice, which he says he learned by singing through his gut and not his nose. He has released 3 albums, won a number of awards, and has performed at several charity events. LaMontagne refers to himself as a "very private person" and rarely gives interviews. He also usually doesn't interact much with the audience during live shows and has been known to perform in the dark because of his shy nature.
LaMontagne has a unique vocal style, which he says is created by singing through his gut instead of through his nose. He cites Stephen Stills, Richard Manuel, and Rick Danko as strong musical influences while critics have compared LaMontagne's music to that of The Band, Van Morrison, Nick Drake, and Tim Buckley.
Lamontagne's raspy baritone vocal style is seen to be unique due to the high number of male tenor vocalists in modern music. A Rolling Stone review of his album Supernova referred to his voice as an "impeccably weathered tenor croon" and his phrasing as "marble-mouthed." Other vocalists with a similar vocal sound to Lamontagne include Jack Johnson, Eddie Vedder and David Knowles.
