The Mute Group met and live in Nashville, Tennessee, the band are made up of John Westberry, Ryan LaFave, Zachary Gresham, and Amy Gill. They have produced a sound which is so unusual and obscure, thats is nothing short of brilliant. They describe their sound as ‘music that skews less vintage than ancient, medieval geologic. These are songs that might just as easily ward off the evil eye as entertain.’ This is a band which you can share with your friends and they will marvel in your well rounded musical appreciation while thanking you in the process.

The Mute Group has done what many bands have failed to do, they have maintained their unique sound from the first track to the last and that is what makes you happy that you have been engulfed into the abstract world of The Mute Group and their album Sinister Hand

The Mute Group perform songs composed in the spirit of Laurie Anderson, The Philip Glass Ensemble, Dirty Projectors, Black Moses–era Isaac Hayes, and the haunted, medieval folk songs unearthed by Thomas Ravenscroft.

This is theater music for strange, unwritten operas; chants for undiscovered liturgies; ballads for forgotten minstrels. This is music that skews less vintage than ancient, medieval, geologic. These are songs that might just as easily ward off the Evil Eye as entertain.
The Mute Group met and live in Nashville, Tennessee. The band is a collaborative project between a Byzantine chanter, a classical organist, a NOLA-trained jazz drummer, and a utility man of hitherto inexhaustible potential.
