Mt. Joy is an indie-folk band was formed by Matt Quinn and Sam Cooper who were high school friends in Philadelphia but didn’t start recording until they reunited in Los Angeles in 2016. The name of the band comes from a Pennsylvania national park near where the two grew up. One of the songs that the duo released in 2016, “Astrovan,” ended up being a viral hit that got over three million streams. It was at this point Matt and Sam quit their day jobs and hired a full band to complement their live shows. In 2017, Mt. Joy released singles “Sheep,” “Cardinal,” and “Silver Lining” that had similar success to “Astrovan” as the band gained more and more fans. In 2018, the band released their self-titled debut album and toured heavily to support the record including festival stops. Two years later Mt. Joy released their second album Rearrange Us.
