Mystie Chamberlin was born on the bayou and named after a jazz standard.
Wishing to escape her provincial upbringing and seek adventure, Mystie, an avid music aficionado, chased her creative whims eastward. She followed a band of rogue punk rockers who then led her to a like-minded group of bohemians in New York City’s East Village.
There, she taught herself guitar and songwriting (planting her roots deeply in the punk rock do-it-yourself work ethic that had led her there) in order to reflect and explore these moments, relationships, and ultimately herself.
While working towards writing 100 songs, Just Another Folk Singer weaves folk, pop, and country music into a musical braid resembling something in the manner of storied Rapunzel and a punkette Crystal Gayle.
