    NEW YORK, NY, October 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Americana/Roots Rocker DownTown Mystic's new self-titled release DownTown Mystic is being released digitally by Sha-La Music/The Orchard on October 14, 2013. The release will also be available on CD. The Digital release will have 11 songs, while the CD will have an additional 3 bonus tracks.

This is the 1st full album release from DownTown Mystic since the critically acclaimed Standing Still, released in the US in mid-2010 and Europe in late 2011. The artist's label, Sha-La Music, took a long term approach to releasing the album by starting 10 months ago with the release of the Read The Signs EP. That release has 7 instrumental tracks, 4 of which are on the new release, and 2 of the tracks have already been synch licensed and heard on TV shows like NBC's Emmy Award winning The Voice.

In April, the 1st of 3 singles, No Exceptions was released and the 2nd single Lost & Found came out in June to help raise money & awareness for Drummer Tommy Mastro and his fight against ALS. The latest single Way To Know, featuring E Street Band rockers Garry Tallent and Max Weinberg, was released in August. The 3 singles have garnered worldwide radio play on over 8,000 stations and raised DownTown Mystic's profile for the new release.

Besides having Bruce Springsteen's dynamic rhythm section making an appearance on DownTown Mystic, the new release also features Steve Holley and Paul Page, the rhythm section from Ian Hunter's Rant Band. There are also 4 tracks recorded with Nashville drummer Tommy Mastro before he was diagnosed with ALS and forced to stop playing. The album is produced by DownTown Mystic's Robert Allen and Engineer Ben Elliott, who was responsible for the award winning Thank You Les tribute to Les Paul by Paul's longtime partner, guitarist Lou Pallo and The Les Paul Trio.

The new DownTown Mystic CD will be available on CD Baby and and the Digital Release is available for Pre-order on iTunes:
