Cornish singer/songwriter Joe Francis is Winter Mountain. From support at our summer headline shows, to intimate Woodburner sessions next to the log burner, Joe is no stranger to the beach. His music is a blend of 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 live performance and the essence of the song.
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.
Tracks from Winter Mountain’s debut album still receive regular national radio play from the likes of Janice Long, Dermot O’Leary, Clare Balding (BBC Radio 2), on RTE Radio 1 and from local stations in both the UK and Ireland.
Recent times have seen Winter Mountain contributing vocals to Seth Lakeman’s most recent album ‘Word of mouth’ and Cara Dillon’s ‘Thousand Hearts’ album. Joining us as part of his UK spring tour, he is the perfect way to kick off a calendar of personal, intimate and memorable shows.
