In the music world, Cheyenne Mize is a true Renaissance woman. Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, Mize studied music in college and started her career as a music therapist. Today, her gift for music—and her understanding of its power to heal—shines on the stage. The New York Times describes her 2010 debut album, Before Lately, as a “sometimes startling collection of tough, dreamy, cloudy-sky country and chamber pop,” a la the organic sounds and eccentric style of Fiona Apple, PJ Harvey, and Cat Power. Her latest album, We Don’t Need, expands on the thoughtful experimentation and intense emotion of her first, with dynamic moods and flavors ranging from rumbling chamber rock to more playful pop beats, all wound with a distinct—and original—vocal flair, a sound that is intense, earnest and above all, sincere. Daytrotter describes her voice as “a tone that allows you to stretch your head back to that last great and true love that you experienced – the best form of it that ever came your way – and feel as if it never left.” There’s an authentic honesty to Mize’s music that takes listeners to a place where they can simply listen, without the tired distraction of costumes and show. With Mize, her music is what we’re here for, and it’s more than enough.
Don’t miss fan favorite Cheyenne Mize’s return to Savannah for her third performance at Savannah Stopover Music Festival.
