Ricky Montgomery (Warner)
4/15/21

WHAT IT IS: Ricky Montgomery’s music has been ahead of its time—literally. The singer/songwriter’s “Mr. Loverman” and “Line Without a Hook” suddenly found new life on TikTok four years after their original release. Seemingly out of the blue, people began finding solace in the rising star’s music just as he was ready to call it quits. Now, the L.A. native’s indie-pop style has become a balm during a heavy time, comforting listeners with warm melodies and relatable lyrics. Montgomery balances melancholy-tinged music with a touch of sweet humor and loads of humanity, solidifying him as an artist to keep your eyes on this year.
