"Abby & the Myth are the kind of band that music fans always hope to stumble upon at a bar, but seldom ever do. With a presence big enough to fill an arena, it is hopefully just a matter of time before they get there"
Born in the mountains of Evergreen, Colorado, Abby Posner began studying music and performance at age six. A gifted pint sized pianist, she quickly picked up guitar, drums, bass, banjo, and mandolin, and continues to master new instruments throughout her career. Posner moved to Los Angeles in 2002 to advance her musical training at California Institute of the Arts, where she concentrated on both world percussion and composition for songwriting.
Fans compare Abby and The Myth to Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men. Their catchy harmonies, feel-agood rhythms and sing-along choruses make for a lively, kinetic show that invariably has audiences up on their feet and dancing. Cara Batema, on accordion, adds tasty melodic ornamentation and winsome drones to thicken the chorus breakdowns, Donovan Bullen plays energetic upright bass lines with heart-tugging harmonies, and David Celia’s nuanced and virtuosic drumming adds a range of styles and flavors to the mix. As an ensemble, Abby and The Myth is going to take the nation by storm.
Abby Posner brings a lively contribution to the folk/americana genre with her insightful lyrics and catchy melodies. There is a brilliant contemporary freshness to her work. -Chris Wilson KPFK Radio, Los Angeles
