April 29 – Patty PerShayla & The Mayhaps wsg Pine Hills Trio
April 29 @ 8:00 pm - 12:30 am
Patty PerShayla & The Mayhaps pulled up to the Michigan music scene in a vintage van, well stocked with songs and stories but not seatbelts. Coming off her solo EP, Oracle Bones (winner of the WYCE Jammie Award for Best Rock/Pop Album of 2019), Patty brings the same sweet but powerful voice and whimsical lyricism bar, club, and brewery-goers throughout the state and beyond have come to know and love, cranked up to 11 with guitarist Lucas Powell and drummer Alec Klinefelter. Showing yet another side of her artistic versatility, Patty dons the bass guitar in this genre-bending power trio, boasting an eclectic and authentic sound with a strutting, stomping, crooning good time onstage.
Inspired by blues, classic, and progressive rock, the Mayhaps make a nostalgic introduction via analog tape on their debut record, Cheap Diction. Her lyrics being the centerpiece of the record, PerShayla delivers raw vocals that come through on the energetic and introspective songs alike, the band emphasizing the message through thoughtful arrangements and compelling guitar solos.
Though the internet is often a subject of scrutiny on Cheap Diction, the Mayhaps have honed their online presence through the COVID-19 pandemic, successfully crowdfunding their first music video for “Slo Mo” overnight on Kickstarter. Patty has made use of her time at home by writing songs for a dedicated audience on Patreon, performing cover songs requested by patrons, and participating in She Shreds’ One Riff a Day (#1RAD) challenge on Instagram.
