My Politic

I am extremely fortunate to have a number of awesome and talented musician friends, so when I got the call from Kaston asking me to do the My Politic photoshoot I jumped! Here’s a little info about the band:

My Politic is an indie/americana trio hailing from Nashville, Tennessee. The musical stories they craft have drawn comparisons to songwriting greats such as John Prine and Townes Van Zandt, and to contemporary artists like The Avett Brothers and The Milk Carton Kids. Tight harmonies, intelligent songwriting and their obvious passion for live performance have become integral to their musical identity. It all began back in 2003 when Nick Pankey and Kaston Guffey met in the small town of Ozark, Missouri and played in several bands before forming My Politic in 2007. They recorded their first album, “A Few Words I Couldn’t Find Yesterday” in 2008. After playing for years in the Springfield, MO area they decided to move to Boston, MA and try their luck on the East Coast. In 2012, “Could You Come Home” and “Oh My Love” from the Album “Younger Still,” released in 2010, were featured on the Real L Word on the Showtime network. In 2013, the band released their fifth album “Love and A Motor Home.” Since forming, the band has played countless shows across the US, which has helped solidify their Americana sound. My Politic made the move to Nashville, TN in the Fall of 2013 where they have expanded their sound with the help of mandolin/dobro player Wilson Conroy, bassist Will Cafaro, fiddler Jen Starsinic and occasionally drummer John Wood. “Anchor”, the bands 6th album was released in 2015 to critical acclaim. In 2017, the band started recording their 7th album (first studio production) titled “12 Kinds Of Lost” at the Sound Emporium. The album is set to release late summer 2017.
