Tina & Her Pony VIDEO:
“Tina & Her Pony deliver a gentle folk music that inexorably swells into a powerful wave. The songs themselves carry a gentle wisdom that invigorates the listener. Tina & Her Pony truly commit to a kind of chamber folk that feels as timeless as it does timely.”
– Rachel Cholst, NO DEPRESSION

Paisley Fields

Mylo Choy
Mylo Choy has spent much of their life between contrasting environments. Growing up in Wisconsin, they also maintained a strong connection to Hawai’i where their mother is from; for years they worked in outdoor education, living between the woods and Brooklyn where they currently live. Finding consistency has been an ongoing journey. Drawing inspiration from nature’s ability to offer peace and perspective, Mylo creates songs that reflect without dwelling and soothe without escaping. Their bedroom-folk sound, influenced by ‘60s folk, ‘70s Hawaiian music and ‘90s indie rock, can be described as Joni Mitchell meets Death Cab for Cutie or Yo La Tengo. Embracing chaos and quiet, Mylo cultivates a landscape that feels like home no matter where they are.
