Description

Featuring contributions from Robbie McIntosh (guitarist with McCartney, The Pretenders, John Mayer), Audrey Riley (string arranger for Coldplay, Nick Cave) and Leo Abrahams (guitarist for Brian Eno, Florence and the Machine), the recordings took place in a host of vintage studios which echo the authenticity of their sound.

Produced by Sam Lakeman and co-produced by veteran engineer Matt Lawrence (Adele, Mumford and sons, Van Morrison) and mixed by the highly acclaimed Mike Crossey (Ben Howard, Jake Bugg, the Arctic Monkeys) and Spike Drake (Dirty Pretty Things, Beverly Knight), the album has a unmistakable quality.

Almost two years in the making due to the obvious geographical hurdles and having had time and effort lavished upon it, Winter Mountain's debut features 11 original songs written by Joe and Marty and blends exquisite melodies, unashamedly heartfelt lyrics and above all else, compelling harmonies.

2013 saw the release of their debut EP, "Find Follow" to critical praise across the board. Winter Mountain have won over virtually everyone who's happened upon them. There have been the obvious comparisons to Simon & Garfunkel, the Fleet Foxes and the Everly Brothers and when you hear and see them perform you'll understand why.

Yet Winter Mountain bring something new to their vocal delivery, echoing those legendary harmony acts, but adding a vital, contemporary edge that is uniquely their own. Their vocals blend as if they've been harmonising for a lifetime. And although Martin's from Donegal, Ireland and Joseph hails from West Cornwall, you get the impression they were born to sing together.

Press Quotes

"They're amazing…awesome harmony singing and such beautiful songs!"

Rosanne Cash

"If you didn't know better, you would swear you were listening to blood harmonies, rather than the blending of voices from diverse parts of the British Isles. With plenty of personality they've captured that 60's and 70's acoustic pop sound and given a taste of the here and now."

Neil King (Fatea Magazine)

"Tipping their hat to CSNY and Simon & Garfunkel…the pair has strong tunes and vocals...roll on full album!"

Jason Ritchie (Get Ready To Rock)

"This is totally the kind of single I hope i'll hear each week. They pull off the two part harmonies perfectly, and there's a touch of western California about their sound. I'm really excited to hear what they've got out next."

Single Of The Week - Olivia Schaff (The Digital Fix)

"These are sweet, breezy vignettes that take hold from the opening chords and recall effortlessly, the likes of America and CSN&Y. The tumbling, romantic rush of Kissing In The Rain and Simon & Garfunkel harmonies of Tell Me are among the highlights but there is barely a wasted note on the whole record. Fabulous."

Express 5/5

"...songwriting, singing and musicianship of true organic beauty..."

Press Association

"the beginnings of a sound that could take off"
