The Mountain Movers

The Mountain Movers were started by Daniel Greene and Rick Omonte to keep up with Dan's prolific songwriting. The band is based out of New Haven, Connecticut where they have a wealth of talented friends to help them perform and record their songs. Their sound can best be described as dreamy rock. Always heartfelt, Greene's ability to paint a picture with words is uncanny. Sonically, the band has a love for warm old tones, echoes, and tape hiss. This is apparent in their discography as most of their output was made on 2 inch reel to reel machines or 8 track cassette recorders. The Mountain Movers are also known for their distinct visual style and their various releases feature Dan's unique artwork (pencil/pen drawings, pastels, and watercolor paintings). Recently the decision was made to create the band's own record label, Car Crash Avoiders, further cementing the reputation they hold for a very hands-on ethos. They have played shows with Dinosaur Jr., MV and EE, Josephine Foster, Akron Family, Wolf Parade, and Cherry Blossoms. They have had banner reviews from Shindig, OMG Vinyl, Terrascope UK, and many other fine spots. New recordings are always in the works. Current Movers: Daniel Greene (founder of The Butterflies Of Love), Rick Omonte (founder of Shaki Presents), Kryssi Battalene (also of Colorguard), Ross Menze (also of Estrogen Highs).

Jason Prince

Jason Prince is a singer/songwriter from the New Haven area of CT. He grew up in a household steeped in music, and says "there was always music on...my heroes have always been musicians, specifically songwriters." Raised on various forms of American roots music: rock and roll, southern rock, blues, and country (and later punk rock and hardcore), the template was set for what would later become his distinctive style of American folk music. Influences can, at times, be broad, but easily narrowed down to early Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Elliott Smith, Willie Nelson and Leonard Cohen. Jason is currently finishing up recording for his next record, "Love is a Storm and a Bottomless Well." A summer 2013 release can be expected.
