Armed with an arsenal of instruments, Mythica (Melissa Cox, Matt Smith, Michele McCann, Tim Kelly) takes listeners on a sonic rollercoaster ride. Whether it’s a funky Celtic jam, jaunty bluegrass tune, soulful ballad, or driving acoustic rock piece, Mythica’s songs are inventive but accessible, fresh yet familiar. Influenced by Irish, Scottish and World music, and by contemporary artists like Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Simon and Garfunkel, and Led Zeppelin, Mythica’s sound is a melting pot of genres tied together with powerful vocals, addictive melodies, provocative lyrics, and interesting instrumentation.

Since 2005, Mythica has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the Celtic, folk, and pop/rock markets, including the Spin Doctors, Sister Hazel, Black 47, the Makem Brothers, Young Dubliners, Catie Curtis, Tom Chapin, and many others.

They have appeared at some of the largest festivals and most prestigious venues on the East Coast, including the Long Island Irish Festival, Richmond (VA) Celtic Festival, Pittsburgh Ethnic Festival, Finger Lakes (NY) Wine Festival, Harrisburg (PA) ArtsFest, The Tin Angel (Philadelphia), The Baby Grand Opera House (Wilmington, DE), Dewey Beach (DE) Music Conference, Rumba Cafe (Columbus, OH), Woodrow Wilson Plaza (Washington, D.C.), The Purple Fiddle (Thomas, WV), Sellersville (PA) Theater, and hundreds more.

Mythica was dubbed “Best Band” in 2006 by 93.7 FM WSTW, and “Best Celtic Fusion Band” in the U.S. in 2007 by Celtic MP3 Music Magazine. In 2008, lead singer Melissa Cox was awarded “Best Singer/Songwriter” by Spark Magazine and “Best Musical Folk Artist” by Delaware Division of the Arts. Cox was also a finalist in the 2004 Song of the Year Contest for her tune “elijah, elijah.” To date, Mythica has self-published two critically-acclaimed studio recordings: Dangerous Little Monster (4 song EP, 2006), and Vicarious (9 song LP, 2007). Both CDs were recorded and produced at Target Studios by Grammy-nominated producer Marc Moss.
