Ricky Montgomery biography
The star was born on April 3 1993, in California, Los Angeles in the United States. Ricky Montgomery age is 28 years as of 2021. His zodiac sign is Aries.
Not much is known about family; however, he has a sister. He went to school in St. Louis, Missouri. From a young age, the star was interested in music, and his parents did everything to support his talent.
Ever since his childhood, the star was passionate about singing and music and always wanted to be a musician. As a result, he started his musical journey and career at an early age.
Like many artists, the star struggled early on with his music career. He played clarinet in his school's band while trying to find a band that could stick together enough to find success.
He was interested in playing the guitar in his early teens and, as a result, taught himself how to play one.
This was around the time that he decided to quit playing the clarinet for his school band. He was not a fan of the marching band and was only fourteen years old when he quit. After learning how to play the guitar, he joined punk bands in high school but never found a group that could stay together long enough to find success.
Montgomery's break came in 2014 when he found fame on Vine. He had continuously posted clips on the platform, which were well received by his fans. Ricky Montgomery Vine posts included original songs which incorporated humour. His ability to integrate humour in his original works saw his following increase tremendously.
His newfound celebrity status on Vine saw him release his first EP labelled Caught On The Moon on November 14, 2014. The EP has three songs: Last Night, California, and Get Used to It, which Election Day Records produced.
Ricky's next project was his self-titled album Montgomery Ricky, which was set to be released in 2016. However, this was not the case, as the project would stall. This saw the star join the band The Honeysticks, an indie band, in 2016 but he ultimately cut ties with the band in 2018.
After leaving the band in 2018, he took a break from the entertainment industry as he was not progressing in his career as he would have liked. It was not until 2020 that he found his feet again after almost giving up on his professional music career. Just as it was with his celebrity status back in 2014 on Vine, he again found fame on TikTok.
His self-titled album gained an overnight success thanks to his posting of songs on TikTok. These songs include Mr. Loverman and Line Without a Hook. The star had this to say after finding fame for the second time on social media:
I went from having zero label interest ever in 27 years of life to having regular conversations with virtually every single major label A&R in a matter of 5 months, It was absolutely dizzying, and still is.
