Since the year 2000, The Mountain Faith Band has performed their unique brand of Americana / Roots music to audiences from coast to coast at Fairs, Festivals, Colleges, Universities, Performing Arts Centers, Corporate Events, and Churches.
When their tour schedule allows, you may find the band performing a prepared program to promote literacy and character education at elementary and high schools along their route. Visiting hospitals to bring joy and entertainment to those who could use a lift is something MFB loves to do. Getting to know MFB is easy; their humility, kindness and love of community shines through on stage and casual conversation. Above all else, MFB is thankful for the opportunities God has provided them through music.

Mountain Faith’s 2015 AGT Journey:
“On January 2, the band sat down to discuss our goals for the year,” Summer says. “We talked about auditioning for America’s Got Talent but decided against it.” What the band didn’t know was that Summer’s mom overheard the conversation and quietly raced upstairs to submit a video to AGT.
Just two days later, Mountain Faith was playing a music festival near St. Louis, Missouri. And that’s when they got the call: AGT invited them to the auditions in St. Louis. “We still can’t believe how it worked out! The fact that we’re getting to play Radio City Music Hall – the same stage where Alison Krauss previously performed is so exciting and humbling.
Mountain Faith’s cover of OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars” earned four “yes” votes from the celebrity judges, which eventually lead them all the way to the semifinals. “At that point, our musical lives changed” states Sam. “We look forward to seeing what God has in store for us in 2016”.
