With Mystery Loves Company.
MYSTERY LOVES COMPANY - Chamber rock duo Mystery Loves Company formed in Houston TX in 2012. The unlikely pair is comprised of Maddy, a conservatory-trained cellist with a highly technical musical background, and Carlos, a self-taught songwriter from Venezuela whose family moved to the U.S. after his father evaded multiple gun shots during a carjacking. They met at an open mic where Carlos was testing out new material. Maddy was performing with a friend as a lark, but her virtuosic ability on the cello was not lost on Carlos. He engaged her at once with the proposition of collaborating on original music. Almost immediately, the two struck upon a mystifying sound, rich with natural acoustics and laced with deeply felt sentiments regarding human struggle, safety, worth and equality.
GRIFTERS & SHILLS - High Lonesome Heavy Metal. Amplifyin' and testifyin' for your soul. His was hard rock and heavy metal. Hers was the classic sound of the East Texas piney woods. Theirs was a fiery collision, bearing forth a sound that was at once novel and instantly familiar--nodding to roots seated deep in high lonesome harmonies and back porch blues, while peering out at a scorched path bound by modern assertions and contemporary commentary. This two-person, dozen-instrument act provides a show full of sound a fury, punctuated with raw, quiet vulnerability. Come welcome them as they bring you back home. NEW ALBUM “LONG TONGUE LIARS” AVAILABLE NOW.
