I AM THE MOUNTAIN
I Am The Mountain plays campfire soul music, and is currently based in Calgary, AB. Carefully woven throughout our songs is emotion and atmosphere. We feel the music, and want people to experience our songs in the way that they feel is fitting. Chat with a friend, dance uncontrollably, have an Old Fashioned (neat), or lay quietly, motionless, focusing on each and every syllable and note. We bring in a variety of our past and present experiences, music tastes, and personalities. We’re a blend of classically trained instrumentalists, leaning on our jazz, soul, & folk inspirations like Typhoon, Dan Mangan, Hiatus Kaiyote & Christian Scott. We’re all a bunch of goofy eggheads who would love to talk music with you, share a memory, or jam out in a sweaty basement or street corner. Currently, we are working closely with Juno Award nominee, Nils Mikkelsen (AM Static), to create a six song EP that will showcase the bands groovy and soulful new sound. The Ep, We’re Here For Each Other, is set to be released in late 2017.
