Los Angeles, CA – January 12, 2017 – What if a makeup free Ruby Rose was the leader of a modern folk band like The Lumineers? They would be Abby and the Myth! Tall gorgeous lesbian Buddhist practitioner and multi-instrumentalist Abby Posner is releasing her second album as Abby and the Myth, the twelve song When You Dig a Well, largely recorded on 8-track tape, February 10, 2017, with a release event at 7pm on February 11 at LA’s neo-folk headquarters Hotel Café. Legendary Sapphic folk singer Phranc will open the show.
With a lifetime of playing music, bolstered by studies in CalArts notable music program, and several successful years in LA’s music trenches, When You Dig a Well, brings a unique, infectiously catchy indie folk rock sound that’s garnering major industry attention.
Fans compare Abby and The Myth to Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men. Their inviting harmonies, feel-good rhythms and sing-along choruses make for a lively, kinetic show that invariably has audiences up on their feet and dancing. Cara Batema, on accordion, adds tasty melodic ornamentation and winsome drones to thicken the chorus breakdowns, Donovan Bullen plays energetic upright bass lines with heart-tugging harmonies, and David Celia’s nuanced and virtuosic drumming adds a range of styles and flavors to the mix. As an ensemble, Abby and The Myth is going to take the nation by storm.
Since Abby started playing live with The Myth, a buzz has rapidly stirred up the Los Angeles music scene. They are regularly invited to play at venues around the city and have secured several highly coveted, high profile residencies including a monthly slot at the legendary Hollywood songwriter hangout, Hotel Café and they are the house band for “Don’t Tell My Mother” a popular live event featuring celebrities and top comedians sharing true stories they’d NEVER want their moms to know.
Abby and The Myth were profiled in a glowing review that appeared in the live section of Music Connection Magazine that included this glowing praise:
“Abby & the Myth are the kind of band that music fans always hope to stumble upon at a bar, but seldom ever do. With a presence big enough to fill an arena, it is hopefully just a matter of time before they get there”
Perhaps this Grammy weekend swing by to hear an artist who might be a future winner!
