The Meeting on the Mountain concept was inspired by a collaborative 4-song EP, entitled Meeting on the Mountain (Sept 2014, Grant Central Records), which features music by Grant Farm with Fruition. The song, “Meet me on the Mountain” (written by Fruition’s Jay Cobb Anderson and Tyler Grant) conjures a laid back campfire sing-a-long vibe which embodies the spirit of the new Meeting on the Mountain series and is also the theme song for it.
“It was really a fit of inspiration,” explains Grant [in an interview with 5280], discussing how a one-off partnership turned into the series Meeting on the Mountain LIVE. ‘That [EP] just captured a certain amount of magic, and I wanted to continue with the ‘Meeting on the Mountain’ theme. I wanted it to be a regular concept, where we could incorporate musical guests we admire and/or have some kind of connection to.’”
