From his early beginnings singing in church at the age of 5 to the New OrleansJazz Festival at 19, Monty has always shown signs of greatness. Fast forward to his recent stellar solo performances at the San Diego Smooth Jazz Festival 2019, Caan France early 2018, and the Newport Jazz Festival in 2016 amongst several others. The soulful & smooth voice of keyboard player, singer-songwriter, and producer Monty Seward, coupled with his love for Jazz and R&B, has come to fruition in an eclectic collection of tasteful Smooth Jazz instrumentals and Urban AC vocal tunes that will please the appetite of most. Former staff writer for Quincy Jones, Monty Seward has written, produced, or performed with such notables as Regina Belle, El DeBarge, James Ingram, Michael Bolton, Howard Hewett, Kelly Clarkson, George Duke, Chante Moore, Layla Hathaway, The Jacksons, Isley Brothers and many more. Monty has chosen to step beyond the side-man & producer roles to center stage. His new single Gettin’ Better, which features sax phenom Eric Darius, was released earlier last year. Monty’s energetic yet soothing and soulful style has proven to pair well with Wine Country audiences from Temecula to the Napa Valley where he has shared the stage with the billboard charting artist, Adam Hawley, and the legendary Larry Graham.
