Rock'n'Roll spoken here...
The sound of DownTown Mystic is "vintage yet modern". What began as a solo project, morphed into a group, combining forces with a stellar cast of musicians (including band members of Bruce Springsteen & Paul McCartney) and produced 3 cds...
Led by Robert Allen, DownTown Mystic’s new cd, “Standing Still” is the 1st release in Europe under a new Licensing Agreement with AGR Television Records in Hamburg, Germany. Distribution is via Sony Music.
Blending story telling songs with vintage guitars and analog recording, into a unique style that owes nods to Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Poco, The Beatles & Stones, DownTown Mystic’s music is rooted in all the great traditions of American Rock'n’Roll.
DownTown Mystic is joined by a host of talented musicians, including Drummer extraordinaire, Steve Holley (Paul McCartney & Wings, Ian Hunter), Urban Legend Paul Page on Bass and one of the great rhythm sections in the history of American Rock'n'Roll--Garry Tallent & Max Weinberg of the E Street Band.
"One of the best albums of the year"...John Shelton Ivany/Top 21.com
