Since the 80’s, Mystic Bowie keeps the art of music-making fresh and exciting, broadcasting his positive vibe and high-energy shows all across the globe!

Mystic can trace his passion for all things Talking Heads back to his early days performing at hotels in Jamaica, when he heard “Wild Wild Life” – but his connection to the legendary new wave band goes much deeper. His close personal and professional relationship with Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth,founding members of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, began when he joined the latter group as a singer in 1996. He appeared on their 2000 album The Good, The Bad and the Funky and performed with them for nearly 20 years. Mystic’s first spark of inspiration for the concept that evolved into Talking Dreads began during his time with Tom Tom Club, when there were attempts by certain entities to secure a new Talking Heads album and reunion tour.

He has also hit the stage with acts as varied as the B-52s, Trey Anastasio (Phish) and Widespread Panic. His performances with the TomTom Club are also included on soundtracks for the films, The Long Kiss Goodnight and American Psycho.

A musical explosion paying homage to American punk pioneers, the Talking Heads, Talking Dreads is the brainchild of a Rasta man whose mastery of the mash-up leaves you wanting more! Talking Dreads takes Talking Heads’ hits for a tour in the funkiest Caribbean funhouse: straight to the intersection of Art and Groove, where the sonic gospel convinces us to stop making sense and join the party. Cuz when it’s Mystic Bowie running this ship, you’re gonna set sail for hot, sweaty, mind-blowing fun!
