The Mountain – Nashville based duo Calamity Jane has gone from strength to strength since the release of their reimagined version of the classic Charlie Daniels Band track, Devil Went Down To Georgia (and yes, their version has received a ‘thumbs up’ from Charlie Daniels himself!).
The reworked track was a massive radio hit receiving support from the KIX and CMC national radio networks. The follow-up track The Chase, did equally as well and featured on the renowned and glorified Spotify editorial playlist, New Music Nashville. Violinist Lucy Cantley and vocalist Camille Rae once again utilize their unique and evocative blend of country, folk and pop sensibilities to create an outstanding hook-laden contemporary smash. The Mountain combines all the impassioned energy of their violin/vocal interplay and fuses it to a big-hearted melody and an inspirational feel.
Calamity Jane’s signature use of folk imagery remains intact, weaving a mesmerizing panorama of beauty and splendour. From the expressive violin led opening, to the exhilarating force of the chorus, The Mountain is a dynamic meditation on perseverance, self-belief and the unwavering power of endurance.
The song’s introduction marries evocative violin phrases to a smooth, rolling feel, ushering in the vocal powerhouse that is Camille Rae. From the verse sections to the pre-chorus to the chorus, there’s no doubting the catchiness of the chorus. It’s a big track, with a big theme and a stirring lyric that’s embellished not only by its direct quality but by vivid imagery. The production is masterful, positioning the refined skills of Lucy and Camille front and centre yet amid a lustrous sonic landscape that all add up to a magnificently alluring record.
With certified hits and substantial airplay in the States and globally, Calamity Jane is well on their way to fulfilling their promise as the band to watch in country music and beyond.
