ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wild Mountain is a six-piece folk rock band out of Colorado, mixing Celtic-Irish melodies and rhythms with American heartland Bluegrass music. The band had its beginnings in January 2016 when after eighteen years Celtic rock band The Indulgers came to an end and multi – instrumentalist/composer Mike Nile and violinist Renee Fine found themselves looking to start a new band combining the Irish/Celtic music they had been playing with Americana/Bluegrass music.

Mike and Renee met David Potter, a bluegrass banjo player/guitarist and vocalist from Florida at a friend’s pub, where the three jammed together and immediately struck up a musical relationship. Mike was in the recording studio producing a video/song called “Wild Gypsy Rover” for The Rocky Mountain Celts (a 23-piece Celtic orchestra comprised of 5 local Celtic bands), and asked David to come into the studio and record banjo on the song. Sarah Jones, an extraordinary lead vocalist with the vocal group Celtic Friends was singing lead vocal with the orchestra and after David added banjo to the song, it was deemed the melding of the two genres and the “sound” it created definitely worked. Mike followed up with the song "White And Black" and brought Sarah and David back into the studio. The combination worked once again, and both Sarah and David agreed to join Wild Mountain.

A musician friend recommended veteran bassist Dave Sweeney as a possible bass player. Dave had played with several Colorado Irish/Celtic bands. When Dave strapped on his electric upright bass he was deemed a perfect fit for Wild Mountain.

After placing a craigslist ad for a “Bluegrass percussionist”, John Ware - a drummer who played with Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Ricky Skaggs, Albert Lee, Michael Nesmith and many more great artists, responded to the ad. “What the hell is a Bluegrass percussionist?” asked John. “I had to call to find out”. John had also been the drummer for Walter Egan when Walter recorded his 1977 album "Fundamental Roll". Mike, while playing with the band Spirit and engineering and producing music in Malibu, CA had also played and recorded with Walter in a band called LA Rodeo. John and Mike had common ground!

The band went into the studio and recorded 28 original songs, 14 of which are on their debut album “Greengrass”. The album was recorded at Grapevine Studios in Wheat Ridge, Colorado and was produced by Mike Nile and Neale Heywood (Fleetwood Mac).

Wild Mountain is currently touring throughout the United States performing their special blend of “Greengrass” music at festivals, theaters, venues, private parties, and town concert series. The band’s dynamic live “Greengrass” performances appeal to the Celtic heart and Bluegrass soul of both young and old alike.
