Songwriter Stories

Ben Ciampa

Mountains Go is the title track from a seven song EP just released. The song was written while I was spending the summer in a small town in the wilds of Alaska. The town is very remote (even by Alaska standards). No paved roads, no electricity, no running water and tons of bears! It is a magical place with many eccentric towns folk.

This is song is based around a conversation I had with local about the simplicities of life and the eternal quest to see what lies beyond. It is about how our past doesn’t have to define us. The real truths are seen in our present. I hope that this song resonates with people’s innate need for wilderness and desire to see where the mountains go!
