Abby Posner

Kisbee Ring to be released November 12th

 

Abby Posner has been a working musician in Los Angeles
for the past 16 years. She is best known for her ability to
play nearly any instrument that she can get her hands on,
twisting genres, and pushing the boundaries of folk, roots,
and pop, self identifying as "Genre Fluid." If you have seen
Abby perform live, you know she can play a mean leadblues
guitar solo, or throw down a complex Earl Scruggs
banjo riff. You also may have spotted her playing drums,
mandolin, or bass while using her looping pedal. In
addition to her versatility, she puts passion and soul into
everything she plays.

This CalArts music graduate has composed music for
commercials/TV, films, and radio shows all over the globe
(including Old Fashioned, The Fosters, This American
Life, The Art of More, and Last Tango in Halifax just to
name a few). She also has music placed in commercials
and TV shows all over China, Sweden, The UK, and
Australia. Posner appeared in two episodes of GLEE on
season four playing banjo and guitar, and the Freeform
show Famous In Love playing banjo. In 2015 Posner
performed live on KCAL 9 news and Good Day LA playing
her original songs.

Posner has scored four films (Across Land Across Sea,
Through Their Eyes, award winning short Animation
Elizabeth Sees, and in 2020 completed the score for
feature doc Lady Buds) while playing and touring with her
indie folk band Abby and The Myth. In 2019 Posner
played banjo and sang Wagon Wheel as a featured
principal role in Bank Of America's ad campaign for the
Ken Burn’s PBS Country Music Documentary.

Posner formed her project ‘Abby and The Myth’ in 2015
and they have taken LA by storm with their catchy indie
folk songs. The band released their EP Ghosts and
Frames April - 2015 and have been touring nationally.
They have had several residencies at the famous Hotel
Cafe in Hollywood, and in 2017 released their full length
record titled When You Dig A Well. After signing with
Gary Calamar’s licensing company, Laurel Canon, Abby
and The Myth have gained recognition in the LA music
scene. They have opened for such iconic acts as
PHRANC, Sierra Hull, and Dustbowl Revival.

In 2020 Abby Posner won the Carl Gage "Give me Shelter
in Place" Songwriting Award through the Topanga Folk
Festival for her original song Blind Spots.
