Inside the Seed (solo)

Dream (w/Electric Angel)

Magic of the Celtic harp Vol 1 & 2 (compilations)



Midyne weaves a richly textured tapestry of thought-provoking lyrics with her own blend of contemporary folk. Her melodies and grooves are infused with blues, pop, and jazz influences that sprout seamlessly from her folk roots while her lyrics capture concrete images of life with surprising observations of human frailties (B.Hahn). She delivers songs with a crystal-clear strength that invites comparisons to Gillian Welch, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Joni Mitchell. Midyne is as nimble and talented on Celtic harp as she is on guitar. Audiences delight in her ability to play harp like a guitar and guitar like a harp. Midyne's debut solo CD, Inside the Seed features Midyne on lead and harmony vocals, electroharp, and acoustic guitar. Midyne is joined by a talented cast of musicians including: Chris Kokesh on fiddle and harmony vocals, Patrick Pearsall on bass, Dale Largent on percussion, Shireen Amini on percussion and harmony vocals, Brent Alan on electric guitar and harmony vocals, and guest appearances by a handful of other artists.

As a third-generation musician, Midynes musical roots run deep. By the age of 12, the recording studio was her second home singing children's songs with five other young vocalists on songbook albums.

In the mid 1990s, Midyne began perfecting her sound in the popular Santa Cruz trio Birdz Uva Feather. Later she joined forces with long-time friend Jayme Kelly Curtis and Bruce Argyle in Argyle, Curtis & Spear, a metaphysical folk/rock band. For the next several years Midyne collaborated with Jill Meniketti and Lynne Reardon in the world's first electric harp trio, Electric Angel, where she recorded the album "Dream" and played her magenta 36-string Camac electroharp at a variety of festivals and venues. In later years she sang harmonies and played a variety of instruments in the Lillyhammers.

In 2011, Midyne was a finalist in the MARS Studios Songwriter Showcase competition, her songs have been featured on several compilation CDs and in the feature-length indie-film God Is A Communist. Midyne currently performs as a solo artist, with friends, and in collaboration with other artists.
