Mysti Mayhem received unanimous praise from all who witnessed her last performance at The Kraken and we are extremely pleased to have her back. Prepare to once again be blown away with her powerful and moving performance!
Mysti Mayhem is an extremely gifted singer and guitarist whose original songs span the range of rock, blues and folk. This fiery redhead's enchanting stage presence rivets the attention of any audience.
Off-Broadway stage performances started early for Mysti and continued through her high school years. Having graduated from Honesdale, PA, she began sharing the stage with Mike Farris (Screamin Cheetah Wheelies), and Damon Johnson (Brother Cane and Gov't Mule).
At the age of 19 she moved to Gainesville, Florida where she met Bo Diddley, "The Originator," who helped coach her voice and showed her how to project herself onstage.
This is also where she met Mandocello, created the duo Spellbox, and set out on tour in support of their album "Egyptian Death March" (available on CDBaby).
One of the exciting ventures during their tour happened in Nashville where Mysti Mayhem walked into the lobby at Curb Records with her guitar, and, after being turned away, sang them a song anyway. (video on Youtube).
She has shared the stage with Hamell On Trial, Bo Diddley, Dan Bern, Trainwreck and a many other interesting folks.
"I started as Bo Diddley's student when I was 18, and I had a long background in off Broadway operas and stage acting from my youth. He sent me out on tour to California, where I made a demo with Kyle Gass (Tenacious D) as producer and John Spiker (Trainwreck) as engineer/backing vocals/bass. That led me to Nashville to do another album, (technically my 3rd by this stage) with members of Highway 101, Cactus Moser (drums) and Curtis Stone (Bass). From there I landed a $50K record deal which was fan funded by people across the globe. This gave me the opportunity to perform at the Paradiso in Amsterdam, and perform in London, Portugal, and The Netherlands. The record's name was Diversity, still featuring those same members of Highway 101 and produced by Chris Stamey from the DB's. In 2014 I recorded with Two Egrets Studio after winning a competition with Deep South Entertainment for the single 'Time For A Change', currently available on itunes."
