Rolling Stone says- "Call it an evolution or a revolution, but it’s clear that Town Mountain is at the forefront."
Charming, soulful, and with a rugged sensitivity, Town Mountain has earned raves for their hard-driving sound, their smart, thoughtful in-house songwriting and the honky-tonk edge that permeates their exhilarating live performances, whether in a packed club or at a sold-out festival. The hearty base of Town Mountain's music is classic country and old school rock ‘n’ roll. It's what else goes into the mix that brings it all to life, both on stage and on record, and reflects the group's wide-ranging influences including the Grateful Dead, Bill Monroe, Chuck Berry, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, The Band, Townes Van Zandt, The Meters, Son Volt, John Hartford and Outlaw Country.
After more than a decade together, Town Mountain has proven they have staying power by regularly cranking out authentic hit albums, collaborating with like-minded artists such as Jerry Douglas, Billy Strings, and Tyler Childers and growing significantly in key markets by leaps and bounds. Fans are eagerly awaiting their upcoming 7th studio album of original material, produced by Nashville’s multiple Grammy nominated engineer Justin Francis (P!nk, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Tyler Childers, Kelsea Ballerini). The album includes Miles Miller (Sturgill Simpson) on drums throughout, thrusting forward a decidedly country album with contemplative and witty lyrics reflective of life on and off the road before and during the Covid pandemic. Routinely noted for their brilliant lyrics, the songwriting is largely shouldered by mandolinist Phil Barker and banjoist Jesse Langlais with solid contributions from guitarist Robert Greer. Extraordinary fiddler Bobby Britt conveys the sentimentality of the well-crafted songs with Zach Smith on bass and Miles Miller on drums laying down the groove.
