MYSTYC IS THE UNION OF TWO INDIVIDUAL SINGER SONGWRITERS FORMULATED OVER THE SUMMER OF 2016; THAT JANUARY, KATE "ANNIE" GAFFNEY TRAVELLED TO THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE WHERE SHE MET VII MARQUIS, WHO HAD JUST MOVED THERE TO FOUND A SHORT LIVED PSYCHEDELIC GROUP. THIS WOULDN'T MATTER AS KATE & JUSTIN KNEW THEY WANTED TO WORK ON SOMETHING MUSICAL TOGETHER AND HAD ALREADY STARTED WRITING & HELPING EACH OTHER FINALIZE SONGS. AFTER FINISHING THE RECORD THEY REALIZED THEY BOTH HAD DIFFERENT KEY COMPONENTS TO CREATING MUSIC & THE SONG WRITING PROCESS THAT COULD WORK TOGETHER TO COMPOSE SOMETHING TRULY BEAUTIFUL & UNIQUE. THE TWO KNEW THEY HAD SOME DIFFERENCES IN TASTE BUT BONDED OVER A LOVE OF THE BLUES AND THE SEARCH FOR THE NEWEST, MOST MOVING SOUNDS & TEXTURES AND RECORDING TECHNIQUES; WHAT THEY DIDN'T KNOW IS THEY WOULD ALSO FALL IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER... AND THROUGH THAT LOVE AND BOND THEY HAVE BEGUN A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY, GROWTH, CHANGE & MOST OF ALL, HOPE, FOR AFTER ALL WE ARE BOTH MERELY SLAVES TO OUR OWN SONGS BUT THERE'S NOTHING WE'D RATHER DO THAN KEEP SINGING & SHARING THEM WITH YOU, SO THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE INTEND TO DO! AND WHAT MYSTYC IS ALL ABOUT!
Annie is an ambitious day-dreamer who longs for a career within the creative realm of music. She is a classically trained pianist but can assist with other instruments such as bass, wistful vocals and drums. She primarily aids MYSTYC with their professional development and piano compositions.
Annie realizes the importance of keeping her day-dream as well as funding it. Currently, she works in construction as a steamfitter and assistant project manager. Though, this is a respectable career and one Annie appreciates very much, it is not her dream.
In her very limited free time, Annie enjoys entertaining existential thoughts on different historical situations. Primarily, those involving social history. She is open to new ideas on extraterrestrial life and the relevance of astrology and astronomy on historical events. Annie earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from Marywood University.
