Bio


Myna formed in the summer of 2002 in Commerce, Texas because Nathan went to watch Blake and Jeremy's old band practice, but the bass player and singer didn't show up, so Blake moved over to bass and Nathan picked up the guitar and they jammed. The music that came forth inspired them to form a band on the spot. The boys immediately started working on songs and set up a rehearsal space in Blake's parents' garage, which smelled like lawnmowers and catpiss, but they were grateful they had a place to practice, because Nathan lived in his car and Jeremy lived in another town. They played some shows in the fall of 2002 in Tyler, Texas, where Nathan's previous career as a solo act afforded them a modicum of an audience, until they had enough dough to go to the studio, which they did in October and November of 2002 and February of 2003. Myna's eponymous first record was recorded by Craig Downing at the Esophagus in Austin, Texas, and the boys hock this record at their shows and on the website. Myna played the Deep Ellum scene for a little bit before deciding they wanted to make even less money, so they packed up and relocated to Austin, where everybody is in a band and nobody cares. Their sound has been likened to early-mid-70's Bowie, early Cure, The Cult, and Jane's Addiction, as well as more recent artists such as Jeff Buckley and Sparta, although the boys swear they are not even remotely influenced by any of these bands, and that their sound is totally original.
