Trixie Whitley burst into public consciousness in 2011 as the lead singer of Black Dub, super-producer Daniel Lanois’ (U2, Bob Dylan) project, blowing people away with a voice and presence beyond her years. And it’s that voice: an emotional, blues-drenched instrument that ranges from a lilting slap to a knock-you-backwards uppercut. On her latest album, Fourth Corner, Whitley explores the range of human emotion in another set of four: utter love, total rage, unadulterated happiness, and crippling loneliness. “It’s those elements of life I keep coming back to,” she says. “Both as a person and musically as well.” Recorded in New York with producer/keyboardist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman, who’s also worked with Glen Hansard, Antony and the Johnsons, Grizzly Bear and the National) engineer Pat Dillett (David Byrne, St. Vincent, Mary J. Blige), and string arrangements by Rob Moose (Antony, Bon Iver), aching songs like “Need Your Love” have Whitley working from a spare beginning that explodes into a blossom dripping with pleading vocals and delicate piano. On tracks like the sassy “Irene” and the sinister “Hotel No Name,” Whitley lays down a snarling guitar line on top of scuzzy beats while her voice veers from defiant to remorseful.

Since February 2012 Mesiko shows have happened all over Brooklyn, at The Lebowski Fest, and NYC’s Mercury Lounge. Mesiko has played on bills with with The Inner Banks, Jolie Holland, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Hannah Cohen, The Defibulators, Alana Amram, Mucca Pazza, Dawn Landes, Shy Hunters, and Catherine Irwin.

In March 2013 Mesiko digitally released a 3 song EP recorded in Louisville KY by Kevin Ratterman (Jim James, Andrew Bird, Maserati). This past August the band reunited with Ratterman to complete a full length album of songs with Sam Cohen of Yellowbirds co-producing. The band hopes to release the recording (tentatively titled SOLAR DOOR) in collaboration with a purveyor of fine audio recordings in Spring/Summer 2014.
