Tunesday: Abbey Lee Kershaw & Our Mountain

When I first heard model Abbey Lee Kershaw was in a band, I was intrigued with a hint of skepticism. Gorgeous model, gone rocker? But, in digging into the band a little, I was pleasantly surprised and found them really interesting. The band, Our Mountain, also consists of Matthew Hutchinson (Abbey’s boyfriend), Daniel Hallpike and Michael Noonan, all of whom are from Melbourne, Australia.

The music is dark with a heavy, brooding bass that builds like a train approaching from the distance, pierced by guitar and the passionate vocals by Hutchinson.  As for Abbey Lee, her presence in the band is subtle, but solid.  She plays keys with a dramatic urgency in the song “wooden hearts,” and also plays the tambourine like a pro, dancing in the shadows on stage, never the center of attention (although it’s hard not to watch her). When she’s not playing and singing with the band, you’ll find her off to the side of the stage, soaking it in as she draws – the band has actually used her art for their album.

A girl after my own heart, that Abbey Lee.

Our Mountain is playing at the Mercury Lounge in NYC at 9pm tomorrow night – if you’re in the area stop by and check them out! This would be such a great venue to see them in, it’s very small and intimate.

Check out some more photos of Abbey and the band and listen to the track “Wooden Hearts” below.

The music is pretty cool, it is so similar to Nick Cave. It almost seems like I am listening to him, so that is a bit strange.
Abby is the best!

Not my favorite music, but she is too pretty! I love the 2nd picture of her. It’s so Stevie Nicks and bohemian looking! xoxo
