Influenced by an era of seasoned vocalists Mycle Wastman has developed the vocal capability and styling comparative to soul/pop greats Stevie Wonder and Prince. Mycle conducts his music in a timeless fashion with creative melodies and distinct storytelling lyrics while maintaining a commercial appeal by sustaining a pop sensibility.
Mycle embodies a distinct soulful sound that aspires to the timeless soul classics rejuvenating music and its listeners to a new standard.
Mycle’s debut solo album, The Beautiful Stay, features 12 original songs that glide from the funky and irresistible opening smash single “Found Wantin’ “ to the poignant and moving title track “ The Beautiful Stay”. The swinging “As long as I’m with You” brings to mind hints of early D’Angelo and the hauntingly lonely vocal performance and creeping B3 organ on “Never Love Again” could easily pass for a long lost Muscle Shoals recording session.
Hailing as a Seattle native, Mycle started his vocal training by performing with the Seattle Boy’s Choir at the ripe age of five. As he entered his teenage years Mycle began his quest as a guitar player and songwriter. This quest has escalated to an extensive catalog containing over eighty songs and a production deal to record his highly anticipated debut solo album, released in March of 2008. With the release of the album came interest from major recording labels: Warner Brothers, Capitol, and Motown Universal.
Mycle has had the opportunity to captivate an audience by opening for the legendary Chaka Khan, Mercury recording artist Tony Toni Tone, platinum recording artist Jon B, and R&B great Brian McKnight. Mycle has also been invited to the festival circuit playing such events as the nationally recognized Bumbershoot music festival held in Seattle, WA.
Currently, Mycle can be seen enticing listeners with his acoustic or live band tours. Mycle Wastman understands where he has come from and with the release of his debut album, “The Beautiful Stay”, it is obvious he knows where he is heading.
