Holiday Mountain is a vibrant celebration of individuality, movement, sweat, glitter, and community. Laura Patino formed the group in 2011 while attending Berklee College of Music with fellow alumnus Bradley Will (bass, synth) and Zander Kagle (drums). Brought together by a common desire to push musical boundaries, they skillfully mix unconventional melodies with danceable grooves and beats that are only enhanced by Patino's wild yet ethereal vocals. For the forthcoming You Be You, Holiday Mountain collaborated with Grammy-nominated producer CJ Eiriksson to help blend genres and create a completely unique sound. “We wanted to make a record that doesn’t sound like anything we’ve ever heard before,” says Patino. “[It's] unconventional in all the right ways.”

Beneil Miller is a young, vibrant musician from the beautiful Cayman Islands. Although he came to Boston to study jazz piano, throughout his college journey he also became a songwriter and vocalist. He has received the Young Musician of the Year Award from the Cayman Islands Music and Entertainment Association and played keyboards for Caribbean artists such as Jabez and Romain Virgo. In 2014 Miller's debut reggae album, Keyz to My Heart, was born. With a blend of roots reggae, jazz, R&B, and many more genres, he was able to create the perfect stew of what he envisioned for reggae music.
