MountainCity Cover Songs and Christmas

Christmas is coming!

(Denver, CO)  MountainCity is in pre-production with Dave Wilton on their upcoming Christmas CD.

From the 2016 Christmas Concert, MountainCity and friends

Dave and Tara Powers, the duo known as MountainCity, enjoy Christmas music, from the classics to new tunes, and have even written their own original songs to celebrate the season. MountainCity Christmas concerts have become a tradition in the north-metro area of Denver. You can read a little about last year’s local concert and see their set list HERE.

The band will be spending a lot of time in the recording studio over the next few weeks, finishing up the CD. We’ll share details when we get them!

MountainCity Cover Songs…so far

MountainCity, known for their soulful, lyric-rich, original love songs, has also released some great cover songs. In fact, singing their favorite songs at an adoption-advocacy fundraiser is where they got their start.

And though you are now more likely to hear them performing one of their own songs, they still enjoying doing cover versions of songs that have influenced their multi-genre style.

Since June of 2016, following the release of their original This is Love, Dave and Tara have released three cover songs. You may listen to them and purchase them here. Check them out!

Dave Powers would like to thank his sponsor, Franklin Strap

You can read more about the company here, from a visit Dave and Tara Powers enjoyed at Franklin Strap’s company headquarters a few months ago.

Here is what Dave thinks of Franklin Strap:

“The most comfortable straps I’ve ever owned are from a company called Franklin Strap, and that’s one reason I flipped my lid when I became a part of the Franklin Strap Family of Artists!

“These straps are made in the U.S.A., super high-quality leather and suede straps. I have one of their straps on literally every guitar that I play in concert. And they smell good too, man!

“My friend, Charlton, at Franklin Strap is a RAD guy! He’s a hard worker, dedicated to bringing quality gear to musicians all over the world! You can find Franklin product in 1000+ stores throughout the U.S.A., including Guitar Center, and there’s a reason for that. It’s because they are bad to the bone!

“If you’re looking for a new strap for your guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, or resonator, check these guys out!”
