Mt. Joy channels bright, bold, and brilliant energy in their music. The Philadelphia quintet—Matt Quinn [vocals, guitar], Sam Cooper [guitar], Sotiris Eliopoulos [drums], Jackie Miclau [keys, piano], and Michael Byrnes [bass]—have steadily evolved since forming back in 2016. Two years later, their self-titled debut,
Mt. Joy, yielded “Silver Lining,” which eclipsed 104 million Spotify streams and counting.
Anchored by favorites such as “Strangers,” Rearrange Us arrived to widespread critical applause during 2020. The Line of Best Fit praised it as “aiming for arena-highs,” while Atwood Magazine christened it “an ambitious
triumph embracing their signature sound while plunging headfirst into the deep end of life.” Along the way, the group sold out hallowed venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in addition to gracing the bills of festivals, including Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, Made In America, and beyond.
On their upcoming 2022 third full-length offering, they explore a sonic spectrum of eloquent folk daydreams, blissful guitar-propelled psychedelic rock, and artful alternative alchemy siphoned from sessions in the Southern California desert under a watchful sun, shining like never before.
