Vaughn Montgomery’s Solo Project Is All in the Details

Name: Little Big Here

Hometown: Ojai

The breakdown: Vaughn Montgomery (guitar, vocals, piano)

The Backstory: A self-described “ex-surf-bum and stay-at-home dad still trying to keep music on his life plate,” Montgomery is a Ventura native, a UCSB grad, and a closely held musical compadre of the one and only Jack Johnson. As a solo artist, he crafts sweet, dusty folk-pop that’s nostalgic, nuanced, and all in the details.

Kindred spirits: The Tallest Man on Earth, Conor Oberst, Damien Jurado, José González
