From Toronto, songwriter Howie Beck performs songs from his self-titled release live on Mountain Stage. Beck's recording career began in 1997 when he released his home-recorded debut Pop and Crash, following it with Hollow.

A British label signed Beck and re-issued Hollow in 2001, making it a modest hit overseas and in Canada. Thanks to that success, his music was featured on cable TV programs, and Beck opened shows for Interpol, Stereophonics and Josh Rouse. When the British label folded Beck's career stalled until his 2004 self-titled release, on his own 13 Clouds label, gained U.S. and European distribution in 2006.

Since this recording, Beck has released his fourth record, How to Fall Down in Public.
