Portland group The Get Ahead is a 5-piece soulful Americana band set to release a new EP, “Mind is a Mountain,” Oct. 13.

The recording’s stirring title song was written by frontman Nathan Earle after a traumatic event in his family.

“I wrote this song about the experience of rushing to my youngest brother Josiah’s bedside after receiving word he had suffered a major stroke,” Earle said. “This title track and the EP itself are dedicated to Josiah and his ongoing recovery. We have always felt that there is a broader and more universal message present in the song as well.”

The Get Ahead will play in Portland at The Secret Society on Friday, Nov. 3.
