Let us take a moment to acknowledge the thriving Denver Music Scene.
Just last week we were blessed with some new music by Sarah Mount and The Rushmores. The new single titled, Jasmine , is the second track the band has released this year. The first one, Song for Spider ,was released earlier in March right before the global pandemic decimated the music industry....
We recently had a chat with miss Sarah Mount herself about the new single and she gave us some details about the band and the writing process! Sarah has been busy doing her usual thing except mostly in the virtual world now as most musicians have moved to live streams and studio music. On top of releasing the new music she has been involved with Rocky Mountain Virtual Festival and other fun online fundraisers! Sarah has also been hosting live stream painting sessions in her free time as well; she really is a true art renaissance queen!
When we spoke recently, I asked her how the band originally met and she enlightened me how they all pretty much connected through Monday Night Menagerie at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom (The Otherside), in Denver. She met fellow jazz lover Ross Sandlin at one of the shows there and he introduced her to some new friends who became "The Rushmores".
Here is the official press release from the band about the new single:
Sarah Mount and the Rushmores, Denver’s own funk and soul outfit, continue to cultivate momentum with their luxurious sound and inspired compositions. Their approach to community has lead to repeated sit ins, collaborations, and performances supporting local and national talent. Now they are set to release their second single of 2020, “Jasmine”, an original composition written by guitarist Kyle Driscoll. Its jazz inspired horn line weaves between hip hop backbeats with swagger and sophistication. The song was produced by Logan Firth and recorded at Camera Jams in May of 2020. Sarah Mount is featured on melody (alto sax), while Mike Givens (keyboards) and Kyle Driscoll (guitar) appear as soloists. The song was written in acclaim to the band’s leader, Sarah Mount, who wears a jasmine flower tattoo on her sleeve. Ultimately inspired by the pursuit of fresh and expressive ideas, Jasmine elicits hope for what is possible and nourishing in art.
