Over the course of his 30 year career, Coco Montoya's explosive guitar playing and soul driven voice have propelled him to the upper reaches of the blues rock world. Montoya first started out as a drummer and toured with Albert Collins for five years, learning blues guitar. Following in the footsteps of Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck, Montoya later joined John Mayall's Blues Breakers for ten years.
Montoya launched his solo career in 1993, recording three critically acclaimed albums for Blind Pig Records, later signing with Alligator Records in 2000 for three Albums. In March of 2010 Montoya released his latest album on Ruf Records, I Want It All Back. Produced by Grammy Award-winning guitarist Keb'Mo' and keyboardist Jeff Paris, I Want It All Back is Montoya's first album release since 2007's Dirty Deal and is said to be a barrier-busting, guitar-driven blend of blues, blues-rock, R&B, and soul. Montoya even throws in a spirited cover of The Penguins' doo-wop classic "Hey Senorita." Coco Montoya's last appearance in Victoria was in 2010 at the Vancouver Island Blues Bash where he left the crowd astounded and wanting more. Be sure to catch him on his return to Victoria in a club venue!
