About the Artists
It would be a vast understatement to say that Justin Mychals’ music is a journey to simpler times. His unique style, best described as Appalachian Mountain Soul, recounts stories like those of his Daddy and Granddaddy, runnin’ moonshine in the late 1920s, to avoid working the local mines. The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, bass) takes storytelling inspirations from long-time greats like Merle Haggard, Harry Chapin and Jim Croce.
Justin’s latest release is the new Album/CD , “Appalachian Mountain Soul”. AMS was recorded in East Tennessee at his own studio and features guests artists such as Jacob Metz, Carson Peters, Benny Wilson and Chris Jennings. He has released three albums previously: Days of Thunder (1998,) Mandolin Morning (2014) and Lilac (2018.) All of his albums were self-produced with Mandolin Morning being recorded at Justin’s former studio, Soundhouse Recording, while Lilac was recorded at Daywind Studios in Nashville. Days of Thunder was recorded at White Room Studios in Charlotte, North Carolina. Justin’s music can be heard on all major streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music. It can also be purchased in digital form from his official website.
Brandon was born in a mountain town in rural North Carolina. At the age of five he began a long journey of hereditary eye problems that over the course of the past thirty years has led to over twenty surgical procedures on each of his eyes. During this journey he developed a love for music and at age nine began playing guitar and singing in church. Throughout his teens and twenties he traveled playing and singing bluegrass and gospel, but his passion has always been country music and specifically paying homage to the artists of yesterday and keeping country music … COUNTRY. Custom made cowboy suits, boots, hats, and twanging guitars are all part of the tradition Brandon loves and strives to preserve. “Make no mistake, I’m country as dirt and cool as summer rain!”
