Canadian indie-folk band, I, The Mountain have set a course that can only lead to big things. Having already opened for some well-known acts like the Strumbellas, The Wooden Sky, and Elliott Brood, I, The Mountain have just released a new track called “Rosa”, off their debut album coming out next year.
We had a quick Q&A with the band, getting know what it was like to collaborate with highly respected musicians, their favourite venue, and the latest single.
From the Strait: You’ve played and collaborated with some fantastic Canadian musicians (like Gavin Gardner, Jonas Bonetta, and Simon Ward) – what are some other Canadian musicians you’d like to work with?
I, The Mountain: We would love to collab with Tim Baker, Jenn Grant, Max Kerman (The Arkells), Dallas Green, John K Samson… the list is never ending!
FTS: Describe your latest single “Rosa” in four words.
ITM: Summer is not over.
FTS: What other acts would be on I, The Mountain’s dream festival lineup? Any genre, alive or dead, no rules!
ITM: I think we’d create a lineup of artists that have shaped ITM’s sound over the years. The Wooden Sky, The Weakerthans, The Strumbellas, Arkells, Manchester Orchestra, Reuben and the Dark
FTS: What’s your favourite Ontario venue to play, and why?
ITM: Likely Church Key Pub in Campbellford because it represents the epitome of I, the Mountain: friends and strangers coming together and having a great time singing, dancing and connected through music… and beer.
