Layne Montgomery is the charismatic musician, singer/songwriter and frontman for his band The Great American Novel and creator of the theme song to another popular podcast Blank Check with Griffin and David! His new album with GAN, “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Online” was released August 27th and we talk about his writing process, his hilarious and somewhat abusive group chat with his band mates, creating music during covid, touring and the pains of self promotion, the revival of great 90s bands, his influences, growing up with parents who are both entertainers (his dad’s a musician and his mom is comedian, Carole Montgomery, who is currently filming her third Showtime special) growing up in Vegas, and our mutual love for the show Scrubs. Enjoy!

Musician / Singer / Song Writer / Composer
Layne Montgomery (@laynemontgomery on Twitter) is a musician and frontman for Layne Montgomery Paper Company (LMPCband on Facebook) and The Great American Novel.
Layne created both of the theme songs for the podcast "Griffin and David Present." The original theme for "Griffin and David Present" was inspired in equal parts by scores of the Star Wars movies and the theme to the podcast "Serial." When the podcast pivoted to the name "Blank Check with Griffin and David" in 2016, he composed a different theme more appropriate for the new branding which has been used ever since. At the end of 2020 Layne re-recorded the theme with his band.
He is justifiably pleased to be recognized as the auteur behind the Blank Check theme songs.
