The single, which contains two tracks including the ‘Vocal Demo’, showcases the exceptional abilities of US roots rocker DownTown Mystic. Following the success of previous releases ‘Superstar’ and ‘Fly‘, which enjoyed airplay on over 150 stations in 25 countries, ‘Live’ provides fans with yet another taste of the diverse range of music that will be present on the upcoming ‘AmeriKarma’ album.
If you’re looking for a little levity amid a world gone mad, and music served with a surprising dose of rock n’ roll crunch, the latest release from long-standing roots rock stalwarts DownTown Mystic will do you good. ‘Live’ is an entertaining listen, giving your ears and mind a deep breath from this otherwise raucous moment in history, while still serving a few important points of wisdom and an enlightening musical perspective along the way. DownTown Mystic lean on plenty of great guitar sounds, a solid rhythm section and soulful vocals, while the emphasis here is also on the songwriting.
The masterful work of Steve Holley, the drummer and harmony vocalist who has worked with such icons as Paul McCartney and Elton John, is featured on ‘Live’, as is the exceptional bass-playing skills of Paul Page, known for his work with Ian Hunter and Dion. Harmonica expert Jerry Fierro adds a unique and funky flavor to the track, while the mastering by the renowned Leon Zervos at Studios 301 in Australia ensures that ‘Live’ will resonate with fans for years to come.
We guarantee ‘Live’ will excite your rock n’ roll instincts while you kick back and enjoy its rollicking musical layers. DownTown Mystic deliver at their expected high quality playing standard. This band can really rock and there’s the tightness that you’d expect from an experienced unit that’s been around the block a few times. For those few who’ve never heard DownTown Mystic, I would urge you to listen to them, starting with this track offered here. DownTown Mystic are an outfit every bit as good as you can expect from the best of the genre.
DownTown Mystic writer and producer Robert Allen has commented on the inspiration behind ‘Live’, stating that, “Most of the songs on AmeriKarma are a product of the Covid pandemic. I think people had a chance to really take stock of their lives and ‘Live’ is a song about getting a second chance to do something.” The song’s underlying message of redemption and seizing the opportunity to achieve one’s dreams is sure to resonate with fans around the world.
While DownTown Mystic has been making waves in the music industry with their worldwide radio exposure, it is their exceptional success in sync-licensing that truly sets them apart. With music featured on over 230 TV shows and films, DownTown Mystic has become one of the most sought-after artists in the industry. The artist’s success in this realm is set to continue, with ‘No Exceptions’ being featured in the popular Fox TV show, ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’, starring Rob Lowe.
