Garage Bar: Wooden Wings / HeyRocco / Mysti Mayhem
Date: Tuesday, July 24, 2012 Show Starts: 8:00 pm
Start with two girls shorter than your kid sister belting out notes as fiercely as Stevie Nicks herself on a stage, strumming acoustic guitars. Then stick three guys into the mix, the dramatic instrumental backing, and you've got an alternative rock band that's carving out its own unique sound in the jazz-and-blues-rooted city of New Orleans. The Wooden Wings. What began as an acoustic duo four years ago has only gotten rougher and grown older, yet the two front women's powerful harmonies continue to steal the spotlight. A third album, Liminal, drops on July 12th, and with it, The Wooden Wings bring a new slew of songs to their set list for their summer tour up the East coast - fiercer and noisier and stronger than ever before.
Explosions? Yeah, I guess you could say we're into that sort of thing. After touring throughout the southeast with acts such as Mutemath, Miniature Tigers, and Wintersleep; (shitchea we just used a semi-colon) Heyrocco recorded some songs and stuff with all kinds of famous people including Eric Bass (Shinedown), Kanye West (Kanye West), Jeff and Eric (Dante's Camaro). They plan to release their debut record, "Comfort", sometime later this year. This heartfelt composition has had several months to marinate and displays maturity in songwriting as well as musicianship. With music being compared to artists such as The Killers, Coldplay, and Arcade Fire, this group of young musicians is welcoming in their rapidly growing fan-base one by one.
Mysti Mayhem has been performing for audiences since she began singing at the age of 3. Her operatic vocal and guitar training at the age of 9 taught her how to channel her energy and emotions. The healing properties she learned from music at an early age catapulted her into further investigation. Her pursuit in this endeavor launched her into a North American and European tour funded by fans of her music, and a German record deal with the release of four albums before she reached the age of 23. Along her travels of interesting people and stories, she apprenticed under Bo Diddley, Tenacious D and Highway 101. Mysti Mayhem is endorsed by Epiphone guitars, and continues to perform live, online, and hosts open mics so others can share their talents and passionately collaborate.
