5 Quick Questions with I, The Mountain

2019 is bringing us new music from Peterborough's I, The Mountain.

The band is made up of three Matthews, Matthew Lamers, Matthew Rappolt, and Matthew Morgan. They met in 2012 while attending university at Trent.

On April 18th I, The Mountain released their long awaited single, The Boat. They also released a fun video to accompany the song.

The band are well-known fixtures in Peterborough, having established themselves as the perfect openers for acts such as Elliot Brood, The Wooden Sky and The Strumbellas. The latest release includes collaborations with Canadian music icons and if you read ahead, they'll tell you who.

If you're a fan of indie-folk music, I, the Mountain is a band for you. If you're wondering what to expect from a live performance, think great hooks, beautiful harmonies and energy. The band is branching out and working to increase their fanbase across Ontario, including Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto, and more.

Thanks to Matt, Matt and Matt for taking the time to answer our questions.
