Mountain Laurel is the oft told tale of a college cover band turned indie rock group. All four members of the band are Fairfield, CT natives, New York City residents, and alumni of Fordham University. In the fall of 2014 Andrew Pierson, Robert Salandra, and William Corona began playing bars and rooftop parties alike in their beloved Bronx, New York as a cover band called Seabass and the Fellas. After graduating from Fordham, the three friends stuck together to continue playing shows in the New York City metro area, eventually supplementing their sound with the delicate tones of vocalist Emma Salandra. Informed by Phish and Dave Matthews Band shows at the Hartford Meadows, classic rock on FM radio’s 95.9 the Fox, and their parents’ Stevie Wonder and Fleetwood Mac records, Mountain Laurel’s sound transcends the typical indie rock genre to include influences of folk, jazz, rock, pop, and country music.
