MYCLE WASTMAN plus Austin Jenckes

January 30, 2013

Seattle-based soul singer, recently on The Voice - season 3


Wednesday, Jan 30

  • 8pm $15 adv, $20 door




Seattle’s soul-singer, Mycle Wastman, emerged as a stealth frontrunner on this season of NBC’s The Voice. Rightly so! He delivers a refreshing combination of an old soulful vibe, R&B sensibilities and a splash of pop. Wastman is a singer’s singer, interpreting from all of the greats that have gone before him while still firmly exerting a style of his own. He’s undeniably on par with the vocal legends of our time!

Mycle had a rather difficult childhood since both of his parents struggled with addiction. He moved in with his grandparents and his passion for music was instilled in him when his grandmother, who sang background vocals for Frank Sinatra, sang to him as a child. He also plays guitar, bass and drums, and considers himself a versatile musician playing everything from Zeppelin to Al Green.

Wastman was an Army private a little over 20 years ago, later serving in the Army Reserves as a chaplain’s assistant at Madigan Army Medical Center at Fort Lewis. He then worked construction jobs in Seattle, but by the time he turned 30, he decided to return to his first love. He writes his own music and has released two albums I’m All Over It (2011) and The Beautiful Stay (2008).

On The Voice, three judges turned their chairs hoping to have Mycle on their team after he performed Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.”  Wisely Mycle went with Cee Lo Green who said, “You got the whole spectrum, man, you are the total package.”

The "Do it Yourself" mentality of Seattle's endearing indie scene coupled with phenomenal musicians and non-stop poppy hooks, groovy grooves and soulful vocals that can make a grown man cry.
Austin’s story started in the the rural town of Duvall, WA just outside of Seattle, surrounded by an encouraging musical family.
In late 2009 Austin went from being a solo singer/songwriter to performing with a full band. "The First Call" are Robert Perez, Bret Darby, and Sam Ferrulo. Together, Austin Jenckes and The First Call have a new self-titled release that is available for download now!
"A lot of people compare Austin to the likes of Zac Brown and Marc Broussard," says Perez (Drums).  You might see him on a street corner sharing songs with the locals before taking the stage, the guy never stops playing...
Austin is endorsed by Alvarez guitars and Brace Wireless.  He was featured at the 2010 and 2011 Winter NAMM convention demonstrating the versatility of the new Fishman Aura IC in his Alvarez Fusion Guitar.
