Hannah Frey and her band play folk rock for lovers & sweeties. She feels like the luckiest girl in Chicago and hopes it rubs off on you.

Mystee began as the solo project of singer-songwriter and seasoned front woman Ilana Held, as an escape from the bleak reality of lockdown restrictions. Drawing inspiration from love and loss in the face of a long spree of bad luck, Held weaves an American folk mentality into her hook-laden indie pop music.

In 2023, after making the move from Boston to Colorado, Held joined forces with Josh, Keaton, and Joey, leveling Mystee up from a solitary project to a four-piece band.

Musically, Mystee draws inspiration from artists like Palehound, Soccer Mommy, and Snail Mail.

Returning to the ring after an unremarkable hiatus, Chicago’s indie darlings, Swatches, have turned heel. They’ve fused their candid lyrics and earworm hooks with the weighty, saturated tones of the 90s, creating a new sound ready for the main event. Get ready to rumble.
