Winter Mountain

May 16

Winter Mountain 

With support slots for pop icon Seal, Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, Richard Thompson and The Feeling under his belt its safe to say its been an extraordinary 18 months for Winter Mountain.

The Winter Mountain sound is a blend of melodic songs, an extraordinarily soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics, reminiscent of a time before digital recording when the emphasis fell on the importance of live performance and the essence of the songs. It was the quality of the songs and the power of his performances that inspired folk star Cara Dillon and her husband/producer Sam Lakeman to sign Winter Mountain to their label Charcoal Records.

Hugely passionate about music from a very young age, Winter Mountain got his first taste of song writing and performing in local bars with school friends before going professional in his late teens. An early success was recording an album at Abbey Road Studios with his then band ‘The Ammunition’. Next he travelled America and recorded a solo album of self penned folk songs at Sun Studios, Memphis. Thus continuing a long and esteemed tradition of storytelling musicians at this legendary studio.
