THE MYSTIX

Down to the Shore

2009-05-11

The Mystix's second album "Down to the Shore" is refreshing look at American roots rock. Down to the Shore is hard-edged enough to present a modern feel while still digging into the history of roots music. The album has a driving groove accompanied by gritty vocals. The band members (Jo Lily on guitar and vocals, Bobby Keyes on guitar, Marty Ballou on bass and vocals, Marty Richards on percussion, and Tom West on keyboards and vocals) have been playing together for three years, and individually long before that. This album is likely to become a standard as The Mystix gain fame across New England and the world.
