About Wes Urbaniak and The Mountain Folk
Wes Urbaniak and the Mountain Folk are an amphipathic resin that stabilizes the emulsions created from genre mixing. That’s a mouthful, right? One part fairytale and two parts science – this mixture defines the band both in songwriting as well as in presentation. The songs twist and contort themselves around conscious themes and common experiences of the most lived-in journey in a way best described as: a new way to say the same thing. Even the instruments Urbaniak builds do this. They play the same notes, but the instruments fantastically wear different clothes and allude to having a deeper sense of spirit. The whole matter is science pushed through the pinholes of art.
