Vancouver trio Barefoot Mountain employs a catchy brand of Americana inspired pop and powerful live shows that are focused on one thing: showing people a good time. Since the release of their debut EP Alchemy in April 2016, the band has been building a solid following in BC and on stages throughout Canada.
The group was brought together when Halifax singer-songwriter and guitarist Cameron Hawes’ solo career took him to the Westcoast to start recording new material. Upon collaborating with colleagues Lucas Marincelj (bass/mandolin/vocals) and Edward Whelan (drums/vocals), the newly formed band finished the EP together. The combined sound of Hawes’ undeniable pop sensibility along with Marincelj’s classic rock vibe over Whelan’s heavy-hitting groove shaped the sound and for roots-infused melodies.
In the months following Alchemy’s release, Barefoot Mountain have been busy taking their sound on the road. Currently, the band is in pre-production for a full-length album to be recorded this year with producer and platinum-selling artist Danny Craig.
