HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Make sweet music with melancholy drippin’ off of every whispered word!
ystie Chamberlin was born on the bayou and named after a jazz standard. Wishing to escape her provincial upbringing, Mystie, an avid music aficionado, chased her creative whims eastward following a band of rogue punk rockers who led her to a like-minded group of bohemians in New York City’s East Village.
There, Mystie taught herself guitar and songwriting, planting her roots deeply in the punk rock do-it-yourself work ethic that had led her there, in order to reflect and explore these moments, relationships, and ultimately herself. While working towards writing 100 songs, Just Another Folk Singer weaves folk, pop, and country music into a musical braid resembling something in the manner of storied Rapunzel and a punkette Crystal Gayle.
