Poetically rich Americana from Michigan
A linchpin of the rising Michigan indie/folk scene, Ann Arbor Folk Festival artist Misty Lyn pens haunting melodies over simple arrangements that traverse the gothic, literary fringes of American roots music. Pulling from a wealth of vivid, melancholic subject matter, her songs are cathartic and poetically rich works that stand boldly on their own. She writes of her childhood struggles and the ensuing trials and tribulations encountered while working toward a greater purpose in life. Increasingly, since a serious 2015 traffic accident, her music also celebrates the simple joy of being alive. The question seems almost irrelevant in Misty Lyn's unique world, but she told a French interviewer that "someone once called [me] 'gothic country' and I liked the sound of it."
