Moss Mountain is an artist with a focus on creating music that blurs the lines between post-rock and ambient music. Hailing from Rochester, NY, Moss Mountain makes music that is deeply focused on creating a genuine connection with nature, exploring the emotional roots of sound and using various instruments in order to channel a higher, more personal level of consciousness through heartfelt melodies and expressive drones.
Moss Mountain debuted in 2018 when a single, “McMurdo Sound,” and followed it up with an EP in 2020, “Saturated.” The latter is a 5-song EP with minimalistic song arrangements and soothing structures, in the vein of artists such as This Will Destroy You, Mogwai, Russian Circles, Caspian, or Explosions In The Sky, only to mention but a few. From the charming melodic lines of “Frosted Silver,” to the introspective soundscapes of “Impetus,” anything goes.
Currently, the artist is busy in the studio, working on some brand new music, which will be released sometime throughout 2021.

From his album “Satured” on April 25, 2020, it features 05 melodies, including his debut “McMurdo Sound” in the music scene in May 2018.
His melodies are well structured, smooth, immersive, contemplative, full of feelings described by beautiful chords and arrangements creating a soundscape in total synergy with his proposal.
With a soft and enveloping cadence it marks a scenario of peace oscillating like the mountain wind, in a creative, technical and refined way.
An excellent album, highlighting Frosted Silver, exquisite, ecstatic and delightful melody, really a pearl to be appreciated in every detail.
