So Others Might Eat (SOME) and
"Looking for the Road" by Holly Montgomery
DC - AREA MUSICIAN TO PERFORM AT 40th
ANNIVERSARY GALA FOR LOCAL CHARITY 
Mc Lean, VA - Singer/songwriter Holly Montgomery will perform at the National Building Museum on December 3, 2010, for the 40th Anniversary Gala of the DC-based charity, So Others Might Eat (SOME). Commissioned by SOME and their corporate sponsor, Choice Hotels International, Holly Montgomery wrote and recorded an original song paying tribute to SOME, their extraordinary volunteers, and the everyday men and women who find themselves in need of a helping hand. For forty years SOME has been leading the fight to bring essential services to district residences, including food, shelter, dental, medical and mental health services.

“Looking for the Road” was inspired by and dedicated to the largely invisible homeless population who live on the streets of our capital city. “We see but ignore the men and women huddling on the ground or around vents for warmth. We avoid them. We step over and around them and go about our busy lives. But the wonderful people at SOME have reached out to these forgotten people for forty years and offered them food, shelter and hope from their despair,” said Montgomery.

Holly will debut her song at SOME’s 40th Anniversary Gala at the National Building Museum and will join Bob Schieffer’s Band, Honky Tonk Confidential, also playing that evening. Choice Hotels International will feature “Looking for the Road” on their website and will donate one dollar for each free download to SOME, up to $10,000. Please see choicehotelsmusic.com for more information.

For the recording of “Looking for the Road” Holly was honored to have been joined in the studio by drummer and rock legend Aynsley Dunbar (Journey, Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Jefferson Starship), guitarist Randall Hall (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and guitarist Paul Bell (The Nighthawks). The song was produced by local producer/engineer/songwriter Tom Nichols and was recorded at Cue Recording Studios and Wincanton Court Studios in Falls Church, VA.

Holly Montgomery, DC-based singer/songwriter, is at work on her next album, Uncanny Valley, due for release in January 2011. In addition to performing with outstanding artists, she currently serves as an instructor at Bach to Rock School in McLean, VA. Prior to relocating to the DC area, she lived in Los Angeles and was a regular at the House of Blues in West Hollywood in addition to clubs on the Sunset Strip and West Coast.
