Mount Peru

2013 Rock 'n' Roll Rumble

Thom Valicenti started Mount Peru with two and a half tunes scribbled on some bar napkins, with the intention of making a band that could reliably deliver the goods, whose music bridged the gap between psych, glam, power pop, and Americana, and whose members were tight friends.

The lineup came together, and in 2011, Mount Peru released their first full-length record, My Sweetheart The Destroyer. Literary luminary and music geek Steve Almond even proclaimed Mount Peru’s debut one of the best albums of 2011 on a nationally syndicated radio show. Follow up EP, Your Kingdom Come Undone, was released in 2012. New EP, Is This Thing On?, is due in May 2013.

Mount Peru are Thom Valicenti on lead vocals and guitar, Mary Flatley on vocals, Curtis Wyant on pedal steel and guitar, David Guerette on tenor sax, Matt Bowker on trumpet and keyboards, Alan Durell on bass, Tim Nylander on drums.
