Described as "Guy Clark meets Chris Isaak", Mountain Town brings you original songs and familiar covers that showcase the stories of The West. This clip is from a recent show at Melvin's Public House featuring Michael Louis Austin on lead guitar and our song 'This Highway Ends' (produced by The Animal Farm Music - London, UK).
'Fort Worth Blues' is Steve Earle's memorial song about Townes Van Zandt. I tell the whole story on stage at shows but in short you can hear the longing, sorrow and struggle that Townes embodied in this cut. Licensed for distribution and self published with absolutely no professional mixing or mastering.
Jefferson Montoya at 6, Open Mic/in the round at 7!

Mountain Town brings you what they call “Americana Music from Utah” with heartfelt and entertaining solo performances as well as multi-member configurations based on who's in town. The sound is grounded in traditional country music with influences derived from bluegrass and roots music - yearning pedal steel with rhinestone emblazoned suits that compliment the superb storytelling of a folk singer. Band leader and composer Dr. Jon has been a performing artist for 3 decades and also "the town dentist" in Park City, Utah (the Mountain Town) for more than 20 years. He writes about the history and the people that make up mining towns of the West.
