A Silver Mt. Zion, also know as Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra and Tra-La-La Band, is a post-rock band formed in 1999 by Godspeed You! Black Emperor musicians Efrim Menuck, Sophie Trudeau and Thierry Amar. Unlike Godspeed You! Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion's music often features vocals. Singer/songwriter Vic Chesnutt deals in emotionally charged, intelligent folk rock. A paraplegic who was injured in a car accident when he was 18, the contemporary acoustic folk of the Athens, GA, native has gained him the admiration of such artists as Michael Stipe, Hootie & the Blowfish and Widespread Panic.
