John Montalbano is one of New York City’s greatest assets on the music scene. As a bass player, his roots in classic and heavy rock may have set the stage for his music career, but his persistence in studying jazz and classical have made him one of the most sought after players on the scene for multiple genres of music. His approach to the bass is primarily as a songwriter, with an ear for what the music needs to bring it to the next level. Sure he can rip bass solo lines with the best of them, but hitting the soul of the song with the right feel, phrasing and creativity is where it’s at! All of this, and a top notch performer in one!
John has written and scored music for many television shows, on-air promos, documentaries and films. Clients include Comedy Central, FOX, VH1, MTV, Fuse, NHL, WWE, Walgreens, Chase, M&M Mars, Bacardi and many others.
