Ryan Montano · Love Crash

Albuquerque-native and international trumpeter and recording artist Ryan Montano releases his new single “Love Crash" feat. Phil Denny on August 28th! The new song will be backed by a national radio and marketing campaign impacting terrestrial, internet and satellite radio stations as well as all digital music outlets.

“Love Crash” is a record that is all about collaborations. An extremely talented group of music creators came together in a spirit of uninhibited creativity to create a piece of music that is both modern and adventurous while evoking a “retro-soul jazz” vibe and sound.“Love Crash” features one of the biggest rising stars in Contemporary Jazz, saxophonist Phil Denny. Montano & Denny first collaborated in 2021 with the #7 Billboard song of the year: “Tough Get Goin’”. Denny's sensitive, yet commanding approach to the “Love Crash” sound is an artistic approach exclusive to Phil.

“Love Crash” was produced in conjunction with Grammy-winning percussionist and producer Camilo Quinones aka “CQ the Drummer”. Fresh off his Grammy win for his performance on Los Lobos’ “Native Sons” album, the production and sound palettes take many unexpected and bold directions, yet still maintain a fresh and captivating vibe. The overall sound of “Love Crash” is in large part due to CQ’s editing, sound design, production and vision.

"I consider 'Love Crash' one of the best recordings I've ever released in this format. I am so proud of this song's unique sonic identity and vibe. I love its adventurous spirit, and how lyrics and vocals have been incorporated into this instrumental work. I feel that I've hit a really rewarding and spiritually satisfying creative stride these past few years and I'm truly enjoying this period of music creation. I'm excited for this music to get heard and am passionate about continuing on this path of creating original music that is unabashedly authentic and genuine" -Ryan Montano-
