Blue Mountain

Blue Mountain is led by the husband and wife team of Cary Hudson and Laurie Stirratt; the roots rockers drew their name from a small town near their home base of Oxford, MS, where the bandmembers first began soaking up the country, blues, and rock influences that informed their distinctive sound. Blue Mountain was founded in 1993 by vocalist/guitarist Hudson and bassist Stirratt after their previous band, the Los Angeles-based, punk-inspired Hilltops (which also included Stirratt's twin brother, John, who would go on to join the band Wilco), dissolved following the release of a lone LP, Big Black River.

Returning to Mississippi, the couple hooked up with drummer Matt Brennan and began writing and performing live. After a self-titled album -- recorded for about $1,000 -- issued on the band's own label, 4-Barrel Records, Blue Mountain was signed to indie label Roadrunner, and in 1995 released Dog Days, an album cut mostly live in the studio with new drummer Frank Coutch and producer Eric "Roscoe" Ambel. Reprising a number of songs from the first release, Dog Days ran the gamut of the group's influences, incorporating everything from country hoedowns to gentle acoustic numbers to a cover of the Skip James jam "Special Rider Blues."

In 1997, Blue Mountain returned with the superb Homegrown; Tales of a Traveler followed two years later and Roots was issued in early 2001. Celebrating ten years together, the band released the live retrospective Tonight It's Now or Never in 2002.~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Lovin this!
Carey Hudson is genius! One of the most original guitar styles in the alternative country scenes and a voice to match! Wish Blue Mountain would get back together!!

Homegrown is a phenomenal album. Can't really pick a favorite but if I had to it'd be Last Words of Midnight Clyde. and I you have to choose one Blue Mountain Album it would be Homegrown. I fell in love instantly.

Really nobody has any thoughts on this band. Ok I will go first. I like their sound. I enjoy that mississippi influence. I would like to see them live.

Great for a road trip.
I guess every band in the blues genre sounds like The Black Keys to brian...
They do NOT sound like The Black Keys.
webersf
boy,that special riders blues tune is wonderfully played . I like this band
Diggin it!
Husband and wife team.... she must be cool.
First of all, the song “Special Rider Blues” is great. The guitar is raw & dry. I know this may be a bit of a stretch - but some of the singing in a couple of the songs sounded strangely a bit like J Mascis, minus the southern accent.

He's wanting some collards real bad......... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
This bio needs to be updated in a bad way.
predates the Black Keys by a number of years. Great band; keeping the alt/country spirit alive.
Sounds very similar to the black keys
"Wink" is solid.
good for a sunday morning!

boring
Good sound reminds me of black keys
This band is currently touring and I had the great opportunity to hear them in Baton Rouge recently. They have a great sound and closely follow their N MS heritage.
This was a really underappreci a t e d band. I was fortunate enough to see them live in a small venue around '95/96 and it was one of the top 5 shows I've seen - it was a genuine rip-roarin', barn-burnin' set the likes of which the Uptown Bar in Mpls likely hasn't seen since. If you like UT, Wilco, Son Volt, the Jayhawks, etc. do yourself a favor and pick up Dog Days or Homegrown.
