“For ‘Firefly’ Rhett asked if anyone felt that they could do the female part of the duet. Lots of women raised their hands and called out to him but he decided it would be safer to sing the song himself. As he was explaining how he’d face one way for the male part and the other way for the female part, a group of people in front of us stood and shouted that their friend could definitely sing the song with him. Rhett took a chance and won. Misty was very good. She was comfortable on stage and knew all the lyrics. I gave her lots of props for having the balls to do it – it’s a dream of mine but, even if I could remember all the lyrics, I’d be too scared to stand next to Rhett and sing.” – Rhett Miller: City Winery 23 March 2012 by Carene Lydia Lopez on Kronosphere – Music, posted 03.25.12 (click to read entire post).
“This girl, Misty from the table next to us leapt at the chance to take a turn at the duet in front of God and everyone. She was pretty good. She actually knew all the lyrics. I give her a lot of credit for having the stones to share a mic inches away from that trademark mole. That alone would have wiped my memory clean. Even if I could carry a tune, I’m sure I would have inadvertently concussed him with a spazzy head-butt, let fly a big-ass loogie in his now blinded blue eye or at the very least, melted his face with my demonic, roadkill-fueled breath.

“I do like the live sound for her music and I imagine that this is the way that it should be listened to. If I’m ever in New York I would go and check that theory out for sure. Most of the videos on youtube show Mystie playing in small bars or coffee shops and that’s what the songs sound perfect for – small intimate settings where the simplicity of the acoustic guitar and the quirky lyrics can really take centre stage and not get lost.” – Day 7 – Just Another Folk Singer on New Artist a Day, posted 01.11.12 (click to read entire post).
“I really like her approach to music which seems to be that the most important thing is to just get out there and do it – whether ‘it’ is recording an album in your bedroom or playing on stage. This comes to the fore with her involvement in the RPM challenge which encourages people to create an album in a month.” – Day 7 – Just Another Folk Singer on New Artist a Day, posted 01.11.12 (click to read entire post).
“I have always been immersed in music. I had music theory at a young age, and writing interested me as well. Yet, I didn’t think of making music seriously until I moved to New York City, where I was lucky enough to be surrounded in a sea of guitars and drowning in heartache. Logically, I grabbed an ore and started paddling.” - MYSTIE CHAMBERLIN, for folks sake by David Ashdown, 10.0 Interviews/Wobblehouse (12.08.11). Read the entire interview.

“One of our fabulous Antagonists is chasing the music world, and catching up to it mighty quickly. Witty, honest to a fault, and lyrically beautiful, Mystie is the hardest working woman in show biz. Oh, and she has awesome hair.” - Mystie Chamberlin by The Antagonist (07.11.10).
“It’s Tuesday which means it’s Top Ten day. It’s just another way we try to spread the word about all the good music out there…. 8. Just Another Folksinger – The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. That’s the name she goes by – but she’s actually pretty cool and funny….” - Top 10 Songs of the Week 7/5/10 by Lucid Culture (07.06.10).
