Misty Lyn & the Big Beautiful

 

continued

Many compositions are built around quiet intros or interludes featuring Misty Lyn's acoustic guitar and comfortable, clear voice. There's nothing distinctive about her singing style, but it is highly controlled, soothing, and pleasant. Similarly, nothing about this band's sound is groundbreaking, but the familiar country-folk mood is well executed.

Perhaps the most distinctive quality of Misty Lyn & the Big Beautiful is the look of the band. With her close-cropped brown hair and strong presence, Misty Lyn channels a rockin' Rachel Maddow. Gray is model-tall and gorgeous but not the least self-conscious. And Jones-beating the skins in cap, jacket, beard, and mean-eyed squint-looks like something out of a Kerouac novel. Check them out at the Elbow Room on Friday, July 3, for full effect.    (end of article)
