Wild Mountain
Wild Mountain, a folk/rock/Celtic/Bluegrass band out of Denver and Boulder, Colorado, deliver an acoustic-based Americana/Celtic/Bluegrass sound that touches a lot of stylistic bases, from folk to Celtic-Irish to American heartland Bluegrass to rock, all with interesting rhythmic and melodic twists and turns. The band had its beginnings in January 2016 when after 18 years Celtic rock band The Indulgers came to an end and multi - instrumentalist Mike Nile and violinist Renee Fine found themselves looking to start a new band combining the Irish/Celtic music they had been playing with Americana/Bluegrass/folk music.
Mike and Renee met David Potter, a bluegrass banjo player/guitarist and vocalist that had relocated to Colorado from Florida at a friends pub, where the three jammed together and immediately struck up a musical relationship. Mike was in the recording studio producing a video/song for The Rocky Mountain Celts, a 23 piece Celtic orchestra, called “Wild Gypsy Rover” and asked David to come into the studio and record banjo on the song. Sarah Jones, lead vocalist for the vocal group Celtic Friends was singing lead vocals with the orchestra on “Wild Gypsy Rover” and after David added banjo to the song, it was decided the “melding” of the two genres definitely worked. Mike followed up with the song “White And Black” and brought Sarah and David back into the studio. The combination of genres worked once again, and both Sarah and David agreed to join Wild Mountain.
Sean, drummer for the Irish band Big Paddy, recommended veteran musician Dave Sweeney as a possible bass player. Dave had played with several Irish/Celtic bands including Big Paddy. When Dave broke out his electric upright bass he was deemed a perfect fit for Wild Mountain.
After placing a craigslist ad for a drummer/percussionist, John Ware - a drummer who played with Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Ricky Scaggs, Albert Lee, Michael Nesmith and many more great artists, responded to the ad. John had also been the drummer for Walter Egan when Walter recorded his 1977 album “Fundamental Roll“. Mike, while playing with the band Spirit and engineering and producing music in Malibu in the 80’s, also played and recorded with Walter in a band called LA Rodeo. Common ground! A quick call was made, with Walter giving John a big thumbs up.
Wild Mountain calls their new style of music "Greengrass", and is currently performing while working on their first album with a scheduled early 2017 release date. Their video "Danny Boy Breakdown", a bluegrass cover of the classic Irish song "Danny Boy" can be viewed on Youtube, along with "White And Black", the first released original Wild Mountain song.
