Mystic "Behind the Journey" (Podcast Series)

I am very excited to share the new podcast mini-series from Mystic titled Behind the Journey. The 6-part series is an exploration of the journey behind the development of the Oakland artist Mystic, and the making of her Grammy-nominated 2001 debut album, Cuts For Luck And Scars For Freedom. An audible look into how she developed as an artist and member of Digital Underground, got her deal, recorded and released her debut album, and the healing journey that was part of it all. This short series is an inside look at the past, present, and future of Mystic's journey for new and old fans alike. It can be listened to as an accompaniment to the 20th anniversary of her debut album. It is shared with love and a unique perspective that has made Mystic one of my favorite artists for two decades. Updated: this trip down memory lane is also inspired by the fact that her debut album is now available to stream on all DSPs so I highly recommend that you revisit her beautiful cult classic, Cuts For Luck And Scars For Freedom before (or after) you peep the podcast series below. I've said a lot about the impact her project had on me at the time, and it's still as impactful today!
