Hailing from the wild and beautiful northern shores of Cornwall, UK Winter Mountain blends melodic songs, an extraordinary voice and heartfelt lyrics in a sound reminiscent of a time before digital recording, when the emphasis fell on the importance of the live performance and the essence of the song.
The spring '17 full band tour was received incredibly well all over the UK with MusicRiot.com calling Winter Mountains London show 'a night of exceptional music from a blistering, shimmering 4 piece comprised of exemplary musicians who recreate and re-energise the soulful, folk-rock songs from the extraordinary albums that have won Winter Mountain so much acclaim ★★★★★'.
In November '16 Winter Mountain released his highly anticipated and critically acclaimed second album 'I Swear I Flew' ('Accomplished and hugely enjoyable, this is a record one can recommend unconditionally' ★★★★★ Rock N' Reel Magazine).
Multiple tracks from the album have received radio play from BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6, RTE Radio 1 in Ireland and others around the world. Reviews for both the album and Joe's recent live shows have been stacked with praise.
A solo acoustic tour of Ireland and the UK opening for Ben Ottewell (Lead singer of Gomez), and headline shows and festival appearances across Ireland and the UK lie ahead of the national Autumn '17 tour.
In the past Winter Mountain have opened for Seal, Guy Garvey of Elbow Fleet Foxes, Richard Thompson, The Feeling and have toured as support with Rosanne Cash, Patty Griffin, Leann Rhimes, Sara & Sean Watkins, Cara Dillon, Seth Lakeman and many more.
