DownTown Mystic started as the alter ego of Sha-La Music President, Robert Allen, then changed into a group project where Robert joined forces with a stellar cast of musicians (including members of Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band and Paul McCartney & Wings). DownTown Mystic’s music is rooted in all the great traditions of American Rock‘n’Roll, blending storytelling songs with vintage guitars and analog recording into a unique style that owes nods to Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Eagles, The Beatles & Stones, but somehow manages to sound as contemporary as anything currently available.
Robert continues to explore his guitar-based roots that brought him recognition for his previous releases, Standing Still and DownTown Mystic, but ventures out into new areas that expand DownTown Mystic’s repertoire for a new EP that was released in June. Titled DownTown Mystic on E Street, it features members of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, Garry Tallent & Max Weinberg.
The band have dropped a Video for “And You Know”. Check it out here:
