Jimmy Mountain

This gang of 4 Adelaidians produce alternative country inspired by the mountain chill of the Americanas and informed by the hot plains of their home state. Jimmy Mountain pride themselves on writing and delivering gutsy original songs.
Being from the driest city in the driest state their songs have taken on a desert sound. It’s unsentimental country, rollin blues and emotive folk at its gritty best.
