While a few of them have jammed together previously, the group came together under the name of New Mountain. Beginning in 2010 in Los Angeles, the alternative bands sound range acoustic rock landscapes. At the foundation of New Mountain are its percussionists, Philadelphia natives, Candice Harris and Matt Fonda. The bands drum set up could easily be underestimated, at first glance. With the combination of Matt on the cajon and Candice on the djembe, New Mountains percussion could easily tear down a cozy venue that made that mistake.
