Mountain Sounds is an international project with roots in Portland, Oregon and southern Guatemala. Their debut self-titled album, described by the Portland Mercury as a "lush, stately record of mellow pop and emotionally charged ballads," was released earlier this year to glowing reviews. After features in national publications like Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, Relevant, and Performer Magazine, and with a string of Central American dates under their belts, they look forward to spreading their unique sound even further as they head off on their first US tour.

"Instantly captivating. An organically flowing and raw musical journey." - Performer Magazine

"Gorgeous. Mountain Sounds stands out as a masterwork; not a note, instrument, or arrangement feels out of place, misused, or unnecessary." -

Over the past two years, Dallas natives Valise have secured their spot as one of indie rock's brightest up and comers. Their debut EP, "Dreamcatcher", was met with critical acclaim and their success on the Southeast touring circuit earned them opening spots for indie-darlings Lydia, Paper Route and The Dangerous Summer. They were recently named one of AbsolutePunk's "Most Anticipated" bands, and with the new single, "Monster", out now, and their first full length record on the way, they're perfectly positioned to make the coming year their biggest yet.

"From their faultless live performance to the spectacular execution throughout "Dreamcatcher", Valise will leave us anxiously anticipating their debut record." -

"Take notice with eyes wide and ears adjacent. These guys are set for incredible musical achievement." -
