“2020 has been rough,” said Love Montage’s, Solomon B. Smith. “I recorded this tune during lockdown here in Nashville as kind of a pep talk to myself. I wanted to tap into the feelings that made me fall in love with music to begin with.”
Every musician has that first memory of the first impact and influence that a song, an instrument, a mentor they’d experienced. A click of the switch, turns on the interests and ambitions, for a gal or a boy, to seek a path that is creative and freeform.
Solomon had that inkling, and pursued it, all the same.
With effervescent and positive remembrance, ‘My First Gtr’ is a poppy, surfy, and r&b-y anthem, that exclaims profound love and then some. Challenges in routine, reminds us all and gives opportunities to re-connect and re-upload those genesis feelings of why you’d gone on this journey, in the first place.
