Jennifer and Jonathan Adams of Montana Skies create a “new acoustic” sound with their pairing of six-string electric cello and Spanish/classical guitar. These award winning musicians delve into music from Pink Floyd and Rush to Vivaldi, House of the Rising Sun, and Bach, as well as their own originals that have been featured everywhere from NPR to the Travel Channel. Using a wide range of effects, Jennifer Adams’ blazing electric cello and Jonathan Adams’ guitar wizardry combine to create a sound that is truly remarkable. With an extensive tour schedule which has taken them all across the US, Canada, Russia and Asia, this vibrant duo is a must see in concert with the finesse and vitruoso of seasoned classical players crossed with the energy of a rock band.
I was recently able to connect with them at their appearance at the TCAN (The Center for the Arts Natick) in Natick, MA on April 30th and was amazed by their purely flawless and excitable performance. With Jonathan reserved, exhibiting his technical prowess on guitar and mastery of technological gadgetry and Jenn dancing across the stage with her NS CR6 Cello and NS’s Original Strap System on her shoulders, these two partners sparred and blended their musical passion into a memorable night of music.
I sat down with Jenn and Jonathan via phone earlier this month and chatted with them about their early beginnings, partnership, Jenn’s experience using the NS CR6 Cello, and both Jenn and Jonathan’s view of music technology, memorable performances and what’s on the horizon for Montana Skies.

Hi, On February 5, 2011 you performed in Raleigh, NC which I was privaliged to see and hear your concert. You were kind enough to autograph my CD and the excitment I felt about your music was more than words could express; thus I babbeld when I spoke with you for a short time after the concert. I am a 62 year old female that was diagnosed with a nuerological disorder in 2009, which has progressed rapidly and is currently being controled with meds. There is no cure and very little is known about the disorder not to mention very little information on it. Over 10 million people are affected by this and now it is my desire to bring in public awarness and seek funds for research and medical attention for us who suffer with this; not to mention scholarships to get more doctors to specialize in this. I am writting you because I am in the process (with tons of help) of developing a non-profit organization that will incompass the arts. I would like to discuss the idea of our organization using you for fund raisers and in turn we will assit in promoting your great music and talent. If you feel this is something you would be interested in please, please contact me at home (336) 983-8704 or by e-mail email@example.com. I have tried to contact you with no success. Lets Talk, Please. Respectfully, Jennifer K. Stanley
