With his highly anticipated second album ‘I Swear I Flew’ garnering rave reviews and nationwide radio play, strengthened by extensive touring which has included supports for the legendary Seal, Seth Lakeman, Ben Howard, Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, Cara Dillon, The Feeling and Ben Ottewell of Gomez, it's safe to say that it's been an extraordinary 18 months for Winter Mountain!

In the Spring of 2017 Joe took his full band on the road for the first time
(★★★★★ 'Exceptional music' Musicriot). Together they form a blistering, shimmering 4 piece comprised of exemplary musicians who recreate and re-energise the soulful, folk-rock songs from both of the extraordinary albums that have won Winter Mountain so much acclaim. The musicians playing credits between them include Joss Stone, Beverly Knight, Seth Lakeman, Sandy Shaw, Madness, Mark Ronson, Jamiroquai - the list goes on!

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.

It was these very qualities that inspired folk star Cara Dillon and her husband/producer Sam Lakeman to sign Winter Mountain to their ‘Charcoal Records’ label after watching a performance in Donegal, Ireland.

Winter Mountain released a self titled debut album in 2013 to unanimous critical acclaim with The Sunday Express stating it to be ‘an utterly fabulous record’ and awarding it a 5 star review. The Irish Post called it ‘A smashing album, a terrific, classy debut’, whilst Maverick Magazine had this to say: ‘Winter Mountain make them like they used to, and three cheers for that!’.

Tracks from Winter Mountain’s debut album still receive regular national radio play from the likes of Huey Morgan, Janice Long, Dermot O’Leary, Clare Balding (BBC Radio 2), on RTE Radio 1 and from local stations in both the UK and Ireland - with the new album also following suit!
