DownTown Nashville contains 6 tracks that features the rhythm section of Ian Hunter's Rant Band--drummer Steve Holley & bassist Paul Page. Former Nashville studio ace Lance Doss also lends his 6-string expertise to add some down-home flavor. Steve Holley is a NYC legend who has worked with just about everyone, including Rock Royalty Sir Paul & Sir Elton, and his performances shine on each track. DownTown Mystic writer/producer Robert Allen says "I feel blessed to be playing with these great musicians. To go from playing with Max (Weinberg) and Garry (Tallent) to Steve and Paul as a rhythm section is like being in rock'n'roll heaven."
The sound of DownTown Mystic is “vintage yet modern”, continuing in the legacy of rockers like Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. The music is rooted in all the great traditions of American Rock‘nRoll, blending storytelling songs with vintage guitars and analog recording into a unique style that somehow manages to sound as contemporary as anything currently available. For influences think Buffalo Springfield meets Rockpile.
DownTown Mystic is the alter ego of American Rocker, Robert Allen, whose passion for “old school” recording borders on obsession. Robert adds, “I grew up listening to all these great records and their sound and style stayed with me”. Robert is joined by a stellar cast of musicians, including drummer extraordinaire Steve Holley (Paul McCartney/Wings/Elton John/Ian Hunter) & urban legend Paul Page (Dion/Ian Hunter) on bass, as well as one of the great rhythm sections in the history of American Rock’nRoll–Max Weinberg & Garry Tallent of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.
DownTown Mystic has forged an identity as an Indie Artist around the world, having sync-licensed songs on over 200 TV shows broadcast on major networks like NBC, CNN, A&E, MTV, ESPN, USA, CMT, History, Discovery, National Geographic and TV streaming services that include Netflix, Amazon, Apple Plus, Hulu, Disney Plus and YouTube. International viewers from London to Hong Kong watch TV shows with DownTown Mystic music in them, as well as films like Disney’s Flora and Ulysses.
Radio has also played a crucial role in the career of DownTown Mystic. Radio airplay in over 30 countries has helped to bring the music to a worldwide audience. It started with veteran tastemaker, Jed The Fish, playing a DownTown Mystic track as his “Catch of The Day” on “World Famous” KROQ in LA, one of the most influential rock stations in the US. This would be followed by the “Mayor of The Sunset Strip”, legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer playing another track, leading to national airplay.
Other Radio achievements include a few #1 albums on the AirPlayDirect Top 50 Rock/AAA Chart, a #1 single and #3 album on the Roots Music Report Charts, #1 on the European Independent Music Chart and the Top 25 Euro/Americana Chart, as well as debuting in the Top 5 Most Added on the Americana Music Assn. (AMA) Radio Chart.
