SPOTLIGHT on The Mountaineer
The Mountaineer originated in Calgary during the cold winter of 2011. What initially started out as a simple two-piece act of just guitar and drums; has grown over the course of a year, into the solid four-piece band that remains today. The band's unique sound is a result of the diverse and eclectic musical styles and tastes of each member; making their sound hard to classify into one specific genre. Call it indie, call it folk, call it soul, call it indie/folk/soul, call it what you will; at the end of the day it's rock & roll. The band just finished recording their first album, and is en-route to starting their next album, with a few new songs in the works. With their ever evolving sound and the release of the band's debut album around the corner (planned for summer 2012); stay tuned for many promising things from The Mountaineer.
