A Radio 2 favorite, championed by Seth Lakeman & Cara Dillon and having recently opened for Seal, Richard Thompson and The Feeling, Winter Mountain blends melodic songs, an extraordinary voice and heartfelt lyrics in a sound reminiscent of a time before digital recording, when the emphasis fell on the importance of the live performance and the essence of the song
Hailing from the wild and beautiful coast of North Cornwall Winter Mountain is a songwriter in the truest sense of the word: Think the intimate lyrical poetry of Paul Simon and the passion of Springsteen meeting the roots of traditional celtic folk.
Recently Winter Mountain have opened for Seal, Guy Garvey of Elbow, Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Richard Thompson, The Feeling, Ben Ottewell of Gomez and more as well as charming Radio 2 listeners with their latest release, 'The Lucky Ones', receiving multiple plays on the station and others around the UK, Ireland and Europe.
Winter Mountains Full Band Spring headline tour of the UK was a huge success, with reviewers Music Riot calling their show in London 'a night of exceptional music from a blistering, shimmering 4 piece comprised of exemplary musicians who recreate and re-energise the soulful, folk-rock songs from the extraordinary albums that have won Winter Mountain so much acclaim - ★★★★★'.
Signed to Faber Music Publishing and having recently released his second album to great critical acclaim and multiple national radio plays (Huey Morgan, Janice Long & Clare Balding at BBC Radio 2) Winter Mountain is a songwriter in the truest sense of the word: Think the intimate lyrical poetry of Paul Simon and the high energy and passion of Springsteen meeting the roots of the contemporary UK Americana/folk/country scene.
