"Many Mountains: Bringing Blues Rock Back"

Many Mountains is a local band from Denver we stumbled upon a couple nights ago, Friday the 26th, at The Laughing Goat on Pearl Street. The band consists of Katie Rose and Dustin Moran, two very talented guitar players and vocalists. We really enjoyed the distinct and unique rock and blues sound. As huge blues fans, we really appreciated Many Mountain’s music.
The Laughing Goat is a great way to find out about local bands in the Denver and Boulder area. They have live music almost every night, so if you ever need a free music fix, The Laughing Goat is the place to go.

We look forward to Many Mountains future performances of rare and authentic sound, and highly recommend them!

"Many Mountains - "What's the Difference?""

Many Mountains, a folk-rock trio from Colorado, bring a fresh sound to the folk-rock scene. Many Mountains' three members, Katie-Rose Nelson, Dustin Moran and Josh Gordon focus their talents to great songwriting and creating a new vibe to the folk experience that is sprinkled with improvisational and ambient textures. Many Mountains uses their music to tell stories and give insight on the complexities of relationships we have with ourselves and others. Their song, “What’s the Difference?” is a great introduction to their undeniable talent.

The song begins with an ambient instrumental that slowly fades as Katie-Rose enters. After the count in, we are serenaded by a melodic and tasteful electric guitar line which is complimented by soft acoustic guitar playing; all parts are seamlessly brought together by a steady, folk-rock percussion. The mix gives Many Mountains a professional sound that could rival any other top folk band. The arrangement of the instrumentation is completed with the pure, shimmering quality of Katie's vocals which are excellent. “What’s the Difference?” gives a great first impression of Many Mountains.

“What’s the Difference?” tells a story of someone who is trying to keep steady during a time of uncertainty. It is about finding yourself and starting over when things start to fall apart. "I lost my job and I don't get no pay to sit around and write songs all day, but that's what I do. Well, it feels better than being somebody else's fool." The story talks about searching for one's self, but feeling like you are going in circles. In the chorus Katie sings, “Like going off on a Southbound train. In my head, far and strange. I'll be driving the same streets again. It's been weeks since I lost my heart. Walking in circles like it's an art. Instead of searching for something that sets life apart. And what's the difference when things fail to start?”

Many Mountains paints more than a story with their music - they paint emotion and it is in this ability to tap emotional moments with music that Many Mountains goes beyond just good folk, but into memorable folk; they create a connection between the music and the listener and they do it well. Many Mountains is a folk-rock band that offers an unforgettable music experience with quality musicianship, songwriting and beautiful, vocals. Their song “What’s the Difference?” proves that they have what it takes to be a top charting folk-rock band who can bring a fresh sound to the scene.

Many Mountains plan to go on tour in Spring/Summer 2017. To purchase their music, visit bandcamp or their website. - Indie Spoonful

"Many Mountains - Lost in Love EP Review"

Many Mountains is a triad of performers from Colorado; their Lost in Love is an engrossing EP, conveying more over the course of four songs than many bands can hope to impart upon their fans in 10. I feel that this is due to the engrossing instrumentation, the ability for each member of the band to shine alone or together, and a sound that is wholly unique while able to engage listeners. Keep in Mind is pure Americana, with hints of alt-country and folk that resound loudly. There is little more to this effort than a guitar and a set of vocals, but the raw emotion that is included here is nothing less than amazing. Many Mountain is able to bring additional elements – guitar fuzz, a fun little solo – that make the track’s 3-plus minutes go by effortlessly.

Listeners will hear all of that and more during the four tracks that comprise the EP. The titular effort on the EP showcases the care that the band takes when crafting a track; the effortless ability that Many Mountain have in blending together distinct styles including mid-nineties electronic music and traditional alternative and indie rock styles makes this track into something that stands up to multiple listens.

Changing Minds is the final track on the Lost in Love EP. The guitar/drum dynamic adds a bashful, contemplative sound to this ultimate cut. Listeners will be locked to the edges of their seats with the narrative ability of the vocals. The Lost in Love EP is available from the band; give their website and social media profiles a spin if you want to hear the latest news.

Many Mountains is a Folk-Rock Duo from Colorado. Katie Rose Nelson and Dustin Moran like to make songwriting the focus of their music. The combination of their writing styles and unique song arrangements, bring a fresh sound to the Folk-Rock scene. A kaleidoscope of sound, songs are interlaced with vocal harmonies and leads that alternate between the two songwriters. Each with perspectives on the relationships we have with ourselves and with others - bringing truths to the table, facing who we are, and the constant state of becoming. Dustin adds textured and ambient electric guitar, often improvising with a jazzy temperance, over Katie Rose’s rhythmic acoustic. Having shared the bill with acts like Paul Cauthen, Valley Queen, Gin Blossoms, Aubrie Sellers, and Michigan Rattlers, their sound transcends ordinary genre limitations. Supported by the sonic landscape they create, you’ll be on a journey with Many Mountains.
