MembersJon Janes

The Mountains and the Trees is a Canadian folk rock band whose sole constant member is Jon Janes of Pasadena, Newfoundland and Labrador.[1] The band is now based in St. John's. Canadian singer-songwriter Hayden is a significant musical influence.[2] In addition to Hayden, the musical style has also been likened to that of Iron & Wine and Julie Doiron.[3] Critical reception has been generally positive. Rachel Sanders of Exclaim! wrote, "[Janes'] thoroughly modern folk style combines traditional instrumentation with subtle but perfectly integrated effects."[4]

The band released the EP Paper or Plastic in 2006. The album Document, released in 2007, was recorded at the First United Church in Corner Brook.[1] The EP Hop, Skip, and a Jump was released in 2009.[2]
