Downtown Mystic – ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ – more than just a nostalgic listening experience!

One of the things Downtown Mystic notoriously excel at is masking emotional lyrics with upbeat, driving-with-the-windows-rolled-down kind of melodies. Their double-side single, ‘3-Way Heartbreak’, which also includes the track ‘Same Old Lover’, recorded in 1983, has all that and more. While for most other contemporary bands, it’s hard to recapture the real magic of rock n’ roll, for Robert Allen and his crew, this comes easy. They grew up during rock’s golden era, hence Downtown Mystic’s music lives up to the genre’s legacy, rather than just riding on its coattails. The ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ single, on the Sha-La Music, Inc. catalog,

Interview: Pristine Raeign – The All Woman Band!

Pristine Raeign is the premier Tri-State purveyors of Soul, Funk, R&B, Motown and the Philly Sound. This group of professional artists & their diverse sound has been building a buzz since they started playing and creating music together. The band started in 2013 when singer/songwriter Shianne Ladale, one of the most charismatic and soulful singers out there today, met the talented time keeper Tina Young via a musician’s social network online. Fueled by a mutual interest in jazz and their faith, the two started Pristine Raeign with the initial thought of marketing the group to casinos. It became clear right away that original music was where Shianne’s heart was and Tina jumped on board with the idea knowing that it would take well-rounded musicians to capture the sound of the group. The band was later joined by keyboardist/music instructor Daille Kettrell who spiced up the band’s mix with her blues and jazz improvisation.
