Fireplace Cathedral Music from Denton, TX


Mountain Song

The river runs, becoming melody

The river falls, creating cascades of harmony

A sense of place, lost for years, returns in the form of song

Dreams converge with memory to write a new story, part fiction, part reality

In this infinite possibility, all words become odes and all songs become symphonies

The hills behind your home are no longer where you walk in the wet grass every morning

But now a timeless dreamscape, endless strokes of paint on canvas that you see at night when you close your eyes


Mountain Song is the exploratory new project of five recently-arrived Dentonites

Joining forces from previous bands The A-Sides (Vagrant Records), RF Shannon (Punctum Records), and Sun Airway (Dead Oceans)

Assembling in the winter 0f 2015, the group made it’s first live appearance at 35 Denton Festival in March and will be releasing their first single 7″ this spring followed by the finished, full-length LP


Oaktopia Fest Review by Megan Storie

The celestial sounds of Mountain Song filled the night air outside of The Bearded Monk on Saturday evening, evoking feelings from a far off, serene, and natural place. Although their songs paired

well with the thunderstorm forming in the backdrop, officials made a good call to move the band indoors to resume what the group itself describes as “fireplace cathedral music” minutes before the

rain hit. Mountain Song’s unique blend of textured vocals and powerful electric instrumentation strike a balance between folk and rock and occasionally hint at gregorian chant. The pedal steel,

guitar, bass, drums, and four-part harmonies make for a rich and dynamic sound. Mountain Song’s atmospheric and well-crafted songs easily captivated a full room of festival goers, soothing and enchanting us.
