This White Mountain is the brain-child of founding member and sole-writing force, Kevin Narowski. Formed in late 2008 in Connecticut, USA, an instrumental EP was quickly recorded and released. The self-titled EP received very positive feedback from a wide range of listeners, and one or two notable review websites. A rough demo of 3 new songs was recorded and released shortly after. While the band's debut full-length album was being finished, new material was written and recorded for the Spanning the Void demo album.
