Mountain Man is, as decribed by themselves “a creature growing from the mouths of,” Molly Erin Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Randall Meath. They met at Bennington College in the small town of Bennington, Vermont. It was not until Molly visited Bennington during a term off that the seeds of Mountain Man were set. On hearing Molly playing a song in the living room of their shared house, Amelia demanded she taught it to her, singing Dog Song over and over until Amelia felt she could remember it well enough to teach Alex. When Molly came back to Bennington in the spring, all three sang together for the first time. All equally amazed by the sound they made together, Mountain Man was formed. Each member writes for the band, writing a cappella songs nestled in the tradition of American folk, with the occasional use of an acoustic guitar. Their songs are shaped by three searching voices, encompassing harmonies and a shared belief in and love of the world. They are mutually moved to sing by their love for people, and for trees, birds and mountains, the ocean, the night, the moon, and being a woman.
