I Am The Mountain plays campfire soul music, and is currently based in Calgary, AB. Carefully woven throughout our songs is emotion and atmosphere. We feel the music, and want people to experience our songs in the way that they feel is fitting. Chat with a friend, dance uncontrollably, have an Old Fashioned (neat), or lay quietly, motionless, focusing on each and every syllable and note. We bring in a variety of our past and present experiences, music tastes, and personalities. We’re a blend of classically trained instrumentalists, leaning on our jazz, soul, & folk inspirations like Typhoon, Dan Mangan, Hiatus Kaiyote & Christian Scott. Alongside Juno Award nominee, Nils Mikkelsen (AM Static), we have created a six song EP that will showcase the bands groovy and soulful new sound. The Ep, We’re Here For Each Other, is available everywhere. ❤

Jesseis an incredibly talented bassist and is the open hearted friend everyone needs in their band and in their life, we should only be so lucky to know such a man. He warms us with his soul, his voice, his banjo maneuvers and his other incredible project Rosalind check them out, they’re awesome.
Jason is the one who is shredding those slick guitar lines in The fireside Room. He has really become a staple of our band and the way he can make his guitar sound like a motorcycle is pretty freaking awesome! He is the mature one of the group, and keeps us in line, although still likes to have a good time! Keep your eyes open for a behind the head solo, they are rare and so amazing!
Robin is not just the beats the hold us down, but the life blood flowing through us all in every practice and live show we play. We are so lucky to have his creativity and talent pouring into these songs, mixed with his stoic demeanour and mysteriousness Robin is a truly fascinating human and he is I Am The Mountain’s final piece – Our Drummer! Also, brothers with Jason!
