Across the Red Sandstone
Born out of the aesthetic of iconic jam bands such as the Grateful Dead, Phish and the Allman Brothers, Mystic Canyon has been a prominent fixture on the Portland, Oregon live music scene for three years. Known for epic three-hour plus shows and a desire to never play the same set list twice, Mystic Canyon performs rootsy story telling songs with the looseness and improvisational flair that has come to define the burgeoning and vibrant jam band movement. With the release of it's first studio CD, Across the Red Sandstone, Mystic Canyon has captured condensed performances of original songs that paint a picture of restless yearning, love, loss and discovery. From the opening old west feel of Just Like Shakespeare to the quiet introspection of Tears and Dust to the rocking finale of Finding My Way Home, Mystic Canyon showcases it's infectious grooves and earthy blend of folk, blues, swing and straight up rock.
