Mt. Joy began as a rekindling of musical ambitions between high school friends Matt Quinn and Sam Cooper. Reunited in Los Angeles, the pair met multi-instrumentalist Michael Byrnes through a Craigslist ad. Together, they recorded three songs and sent them out into the world, hoping for the best.
Nearly 20 million Spotify streams later, Mt. Joy have quickly transitioned from a part-time calling into a full-fledged band, with Rolling Stone hailing them as "your new folk-rock heroes" and NPR Music naming them a Favorite New Artist of 2018.
In 2017, they toured with The Shins, The Head and The Heart, and Whitney, while popping up at Bonnaroo, Newport Folk, and Lollapalooza, eventually catching the attention of Dualtone Records.
The songs on their self-titled debut album depict Quinn wrestling with his own conscience, where the mundane and the fantastic collide as he processes tragedy, society, and love. But there’s a sense of hope underlying everything, girded by the fact that the LP is an impressive, honest portrayal of a young band facing that moment where dreams become reality, and finding beauty in the exhilarating uncertainty of it all.
