Biography

Bio:
“Think of God as a great ocean... though we all might take different streams and rivers to get to him, we’re all essentially going to the same place.” – Mighty Mystic
Considered one of the leaders in the East Coast Reggae Movement, reggae artist Mighty Mystic’s fresh sound and musical diversity has proved to be a magnet for music lovers in search of something refreshing and new. It has attracted listeners of all ages, and from all walks of life. A charismatic man on a mission: Mighty Mystic has gone from being a fan of reggae music, to being a contributor to the art. In November 2010 Mighty Mystic released his debut album “Wake up the World” to an overwhelming response. The 17 track album produced several highly acclaimed songs such as “Revolution”, “Riding on the Clouds”, and “Better Times”. Nearly three years later a more mature, seasoned Mystic has appeared with music that’s best summed up as timeless. Mystic says “I’ve learned a lot over the last 3 years not only about myself but about people, and I think that has been an extremely important part in the development and growth of my music”. Mystic and his team are gearing up for a mid to late 2013 release of his sophomore album tentatively titled “Concrete World”.

THE MAN BEHIND MIGHTY MYSTIC
Mighty Mystic was born Kevin Mark Holness, in the countryside of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. As a child, Holness showed early interest in his native island’s music. It was common to hear him singing songs like “Buffalo Soldier,” “What the Hell the Police Can Do,” or hymns sung in Sunday morning church. In 1989, Holness relocated to Boston, as his family was in search of a new life. It was then the sounds of Mighty Mystic were born, as he began to wet his feet in the local music scene. When it came time to find a name which best suited him, Holness choose “Mystic” which was the childhood nickname of his father, and coincidentally the area where Holness and his family relocated to in Boston." The name just fit. He shares, “When I moved to Boston, I realized the North East region was very influenced by the hip hop scene of the early 90's, and it also had a bubbling reggae market. I wanted to hold on tight to my Jamaican reggae influences, even while living abroad. A huge part of my inspiration is directly linked to the teachings that my family instilled in me. They were beloved in our Jamaican community, for their works, devotion and overall help onto others, and this is something that truly inspired me to do the type of music I do.”

DEVELOPING THE MUSIC
In 2006 after several years of working on his craft and developing several smaller scale releases, Mighty Mystic teamed up with producers Mike Cip & Stephen Thunder to record Mystic’s first national / international venture. The team wasted little time, and scored a hit with their first release, “Riding on the Clouds” which was followed by “Revolution”. Both tracks took the grass roots market by storm and put the radar on the developing Mighty Mystic. His early successes landed him on his first major tour which started in FL and ended in Vermont stopping on just about every state in between. By the time his official “Wake up the World” album (2010) hit the streets Mystic had gathered 4 more successful releases i.e. “Better Times”, “Here I Am” ft Shaggy, “Slipped Away” (relationships riddim), and “Hero” (18 & ova Riddim). The young Mystic finally began to see his childhood dream coming true. Mystic would spend the next few years touring, recording, and constantly trying to educate himself on things that would make him a better artist. He would emerge a more diverse, hungry artist who prides himself on developing and staying interactive with rapidly growing fan base.

Mighty Mystic has turned himself into one of the more highly sought after U.S based Reggae artist on today’s scene. His brand of “HARD ROOTS” Reggae mixed with elements of Rock and Hip Hop has proven to be a magnet to young music lovers all over and continues to grow rapidly. He has toured and shared the stage with some of Reggae’s biggest names such as Steel Pulse, Damian Marley, Toots and the Maytals, Lee Scratch Perry, Barrington Levy, Buju Banton, The Wailers, Shaggy, Collie Buddz, Sean Paul, Shaggy, Badfish, Dirty Heads, SOJA, John Brown's Body, Luciano, Capleton and Beenie Man to name a few. Mystic has headlined several popular Festivals and sold out some of the more prestigious venues across the U.S., i.e. the Paradise Rock Club - MA, Middle East - MA, Port City Music Hall - ME, Nectars – VT. It’s a common occurrence to see his devoted fans travel from state to state concert to concert to see him live and partake in the vibes of the mystic aura. Be on the lookout for his 2013 sophomore album release titled “Concrete World” which Mystic says “I’m truly proud of this project and can’t wait for the world to hear it”.
