“Jenette Mackie of Polly Panic wields the cello like an ax, wails like a rock goddess, and sends us straight up to the ether … It’s an intense and unique journey.” (Meeghan Kane, Unsweetened Magazine, 2018.)
Polly Panic is front-woman and creator Jenette Mackie on cello, vocals and loop-station, and drummer Chris Medrano. Classically trained but shaped by her love of rock and blues, Mackie formed Polly Panic in 2006. She has released three full-length albums — Painkiller (2006), Fragment (2012), and Losing Form (2018). Polly Panic is currently working on another album to be released in late 2022.
When not playing shows up and down the East Coast or recording music for Polly Panic, Mackie has toured as part of the ground-breaking cello-rock band Rasputina, created music for a variety of performance-art and dance pieces, and has provided cello in the studio and on stage for a diverse array of artists, including poets, metal bands, and rappers.
“This is beautiful, breathtaking, killer punk rock and roll.” (Phil King, AudioFuzz, 2018)
“Her presentation, sound and lyrics are at once soft and steel as she shares her life story with us.” (Victoria Pearson, Music News and Reviews, 2018)
Bryan Colston made his musical debut in 2009 as a hip hop duo “Crazyhorse And Colston”. Together they created an award winning album, “Backroads and Bonfires”, as well as two award winning music videos. Since then Colston has released an all original solo album, as well as a mixtape, both of which were instant Asheville classics. He shows a lot of versatility with his deep lyrics matched with unique instrument driven hip hop beats. Colston has opened up for Mobb Deep, Nappy Roots, Rass Kass, Akil the MC, Black Milk, Rapper Big Pooh, Blackalicious, and many more notable artists. You can listen to his brand new album “Imposter Syndrome” here!
