Biography

Born and raised in Longview, TX, Monte Pittman made the decision at 24 to move to L.os Angeles to pursue a career as a professional musician unfortunately having to leave his family, friends, and band Myra Mains behind. Upon arrival in LA, he made ends meet by working at a local music store. Realizing he was better at teaching than selling, he left to start providing guitar lessons.

As fate would have it, his third student would end up being British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, who had just received a guitar from his then girlfriend, Madonna. Soon after, Monte was introduced to the iconic performer, and became her guitar teacher as well. A month later, Monte was invited to join Madonna on stage at the David Letterman Show to promote her album, Music.

Monte has since played guitar on all of her live tours and albums starting with the 2001 Drowned World Tour to sharing writing credits on some of her songs.

Monte has also played guitar for the band Prong. He is credited with co-writing songs on “Scorpio Rising” and ”Power of the Damager” to which he also added backing vocals and bass. He also played guitar on Prong’s live album “100% Live”.

In November 2009, Monte released his debut acoustic solo album, “The Deepest Dark”. Almost a year after its release, a special bonus version of “The Deepest Dark” was released and immediately reached the No. 1 spot on the Best-Selling Acoustic Albums list at CD-Baby.com. It was also No. 9 in the Top 10 Best-Selling CDs for the Fall of 2010.
