Born in the mountains of Evergreen, Colorado, Abby Posner began studying music and performance at age six. A gifted pint sized pianist, she quickly picked up guitar, drums, bass, banjo, and mandolin, and continues to master new instruments. Posner moved to Los Angeles in 2002 to advance her musical training at California Institute of the Arts, where she concentrated on both world percussion and composition for songwriting.
Since Abby started playing live with The Myth, a buzz has rapidly stirred up the Los Angeles music scene. They are regularly invited to play at venues around the city and have secured several highly coveted, high profile residencies including a monthly slot at the legendary Hollywood songwriter hangout, Hotel Café and they are the house band for “Don’t Tell My Mother” a popular live event featuring celebrities and top comedians sharing true stories they’d NEVER want their moms to know.
Fans compare Abby and The Myth to Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men. Their catchy harmonies, feel-agood rhythms and sing-along choruses make for a lively, kinetic show that invariably has audiences up on their feet and dancing. Cara Batema, on accordion, adds tasty melodic ornamentation and winsome drones to thicken the chorus breakdowns, Donovan Bullen plays energetic upright bass lines with heart-tugging harmonies, and David Celia’s nuanced and virtuosic drumming adds a range of styles and flavors to the mix. As an ensemble, Abby and The Myth is going to take the nation by storm.
