A five-piece group from Winnipeg, Yes We Mystic grabs ideas and aesthetics from all over the map and ventures to morph them into something entirely different. The band’s 2013 EP, Floods and Fires, was hailed as “a complexly orchestrated masterpiece of the blossoming indie folk genre” (Willow Grier, Beatroute Magazine). Yet it was in Vestige that Yes We Mystic began to reveal what the band had long been planning; music with the same heart, but with a different face. The result of this “fearless creative energy” (Sarah Murphy, Exclaim!), is Vestige, a release hailed as “simply gorgeous” (Julijana Capone, Beatroute Magazine). The band spent summer 2015 recording its upcoming debut full-length in Montreal by Jace Lasek (Besnard Lakes, Patrick Watson, Wolf Parade, Suuns).
Yes We Mystic has received widespread airplay on campus and community radio across the country, including reaching #38 on the !Earshot charts for Vestige, perhaps somewhat of a strange feat for a two-song vinyl 7" in 2015.
About the Workshop
How do emerging artists and industry get a shot at being added to rotation on campus and community radio? From submitting materials and one-sheets, to follow-ups and tracking spins, this workshop will cover it all.
The DIY Series offers developing artists and industry, as well as veterans looking to update their skills, the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the music business. The series starts with the music business fundamentals that everyone needs to master – bio writing, radio play, mastering social media, touring, and understanding copyright -- and ends with planning a release, showing how each of these pieces fit together to create a cohesive strategy.
