Conor Oberst and the Mystic River Band
When Conor Oberst fled the mid-western winter for Tepoztlan, Mexico in early 2008, his plan was to record a collection of songs in beautiful surroundings with some friends. The band he put together for the recording sessions – all done in an adobe house half way up a mountain – was released last year as “Conor Oberst”, his first non-Bright Eyes release since 2001. The band then took to the road as Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band, named for Valle Místico where the recording took place. While touring in support of Conor Oberst, the talented 6-piece began to write new songs, each band member sharing their compositions and working them out on the road. Energized by the live performances, and eager to capture the synergy they felt onstage, Oberst took his musical compadres to Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, Texas outside of El Paso to capture these gems on tape. In recording sessions in November & December ‘08 The Mystic Valley Band recorded 16 songs and this time they shared the songwriting on recent release “Outer South”. The Mystic Valley Band are Taylor Hollingsworth (guitar), Nik Freitas (guitar), Jason Boesel (drums),Macey Taylor (bass) and Nathaniel Walcott (piano/keyboard). A native of Omaha, Nebraska, Conor Oberst has been releasing his music since 1993. In that time he has recorded and performed in many bands and musical projects including Commander Venus, Park Ave., Desaparecidos and, most notably, Bright Eyes, his main musical vehicle for the past decade.
