Fun Indie pop formed from the need to create something for a dear friend. Now Handmade’s music continues to grow for everything else that matters.
I am the Mountain
I Am The Mountain plays campfire soul music, and is currently based in Calgary, AB. Carefully woven throughout our songs are 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...
After fronting a garage rock band for nearly a decade Thomas Englund had accumulated a collection of saccharine pop tunes that never fit that mold. He didn't know what to do with them until he began hitting harmonies with kindred spirit Shannon Thomas. Pulling Anthony Vespa and Mike Hudec on board they're calling the hook laden sounds 50's Pop Rock.
