Indie-pop duo A City On A Lake make its first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown, W.Va. The band's leader, Alex Wong, has appeared on Mountain Stage twice before, most recently with The Paper Raincoat, alongside singer-songwriter Amber Rubarth.
For his latest project, Wong is joined by his friends Kevin Rice on drums and Latin Grammy nominee Ximena Sariñana on keyboards and "everything else." Over the past few years, Wong has worked as a co-writer and producer with everyone from Vienna Teng, Elizabeth and the Catapult and Melissa Ferrick to country-pop newcomers Delta Rae. A City on a Lake's set includes the song "Oceanside," which was not heard in the radio broadcast.
