My name is Jon but you probably recognize me as The Mountains & The Trees. I’m currently residing in beautiful Nova Scotia and working on a new studio album (due 2013) but miss performing live. To remedy this I’ve teamed up with Analog Songs, a take-away show site based here in NS, to produce a series of videos featuring new and old songs which will also be a digital EP. Annnnnnd….
I want you to be involved!
From help choosing the songs or being part of the videos to getting exclusive thank-yous in the mail after it’s all done, there are a ton of ways to be a part of it. I’ve set a very modest goal for the project and once that goal is reached 20% of donation after that will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
If you want to be a part but have an idea that isn’t listed, let me know and I’m sure I can help out too!
- Jon, M+T

This isn’t a typical video session, so there’s going to be some direction in the ay of hand-drawn storyboards (likely by me, likely crude). Here’s a chance to own a part of the process!
