The Mountains & The Trees (can/rewika)
...Local yokel rising crust folk singer, whatever that means. Described as a “hootenanny” by mother - tends to get a bit loopy. You decide!

The Mountains & The Trees are/is Jon Janes. He plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, bells, drums, and whistles, hums, and sings. He is often backed-up by the Valleys & Seas Orchestra featuring a collective of friends with a variety of instruments.

After spending most of his musical career behind the drums, Janes finally came out of hiding (it was a large drum-kit!) and embraced the singer-songwriter inside. Shy at first, he adopted the stage moniker The Mountains & The Trees and has been loving it ever since. Originally a two-piece, it shrunk to a solo act, then grew to a 3-piece, 4-piece, shrunk again to a 2-piece, grew again to a 3-pie… you get the idea. The size of The Mountains & The Trees changes with the weather and, often, with whomever in the crowd is brave enough to step on stage to play and sing along.

Genre-wise, Janes has too many effects pedals for folk, too many banjos for rock-n-roll (if you’re wondering how many banjos are too many - it’s one). He playfully describes himself as Folk-Pop or Folk-N-Roll. Recordings contain a variety of instruments, such as guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, bells, and drums. Live, Janes backs himself up with the help of some looping-pedals, some deft footwork, and a little luck.

The Mountains & The Trees have released two recordings thus far - Paper Or Plastic EP [2006] and Document [2007]. The former is a 5-song disc recorded on a shoestring budget and delivered in creative packaging (will that be paper or plastic casing?). It features Janes in a variety of roles, instrumentally and vocally, as well as guest appearances by Rick Lambe and Louis MacDonald. The latter is a full-length 15-song acoustic effort, recorded over three night-sessions at Park St. United Church in Corner Brook. Featuring Janes on vocals, guitar, and mouth harp, this disc is an effort to capture a moment in musical form. It comes in a hand-printed case with a photo-postcard and a package of dirt and seeds (please plant them). All this is contained in a vinyl case, hand-sewn with help (and love) by grandma. Document is also a limited-edition release of 90 discs. Both discs have received airplay on CBC and College Radio.

Die fünfköpfige Band Likewise, ursprünglich aus Oberösterreich, mittlerweile aber in Wien beheimatet, ist musikalisch auf der Folk-Rock-Schiene unterwegs und lässt gerne Merkmale des Alternative-Country in ihre Lieder einfließen, Lieder, die von Heimatgefühl, Freundschaft und Liebe handeln und getragen sind von dem wohltuenden Kontrast einer männlichen und zweier weiblicher Stimmen. Bei all dem bewegt sich das Quintett derart sicher auf Konzertbühnen, dass man meinen könnte, Likewise wollten nie wieder etwas Anderes tun.
