Montgomery Church is a New South Wales duo from the Snowy Mountains, comprised of Cielle Montgomery and James Church. Their new album In the Shadow of the Mountain is a glorious collection of songs, and from it they have released the single ‘Hot as Hell in Heaven’ , which tells the story of an ex-con finding that life on the outside is not so heavenly after all. It exemplifies the style and quality of the album and, therefore, provides a great introduction to this accomplished pair’s work.
Listen to ‘Hot as Hell in Heaven’ on Soundcloud.
Montgomery Church have toured extensively throughout Australia over the past two years, playing numerous sold out shows, house concerts and festivals including Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival, National Folk Festival, Inland Sea of Sound Festival, Summer Hill Folk Festival, St Alban’s Folk Festival, Maleny Music Festival, Hill End Arts Festival, Escape ArtFEST, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival, Cullulleraine Music Festival, The Great Alpine Pick, Peak Music Festival, as well as appearing at Woodford Folk Festival.
