Little Mazarn is an electric banjo and singing saw duo from Austin, TX. Inspired by the 1960's primitive folk revival and early 'high lonesome' Appalachian sound, as well as modern minimalism and ambient music, they combine imaginative songwriting with dreamy and innovative use of traditional instruments and textures. Since 2016 they've been performing live in rock clubs, folk listening rooms and unconventional spaces such as dry riverbeds, abandoned buildings, galleries, theaters, and churches in the United States and Canada. In 2017, Little Mazarn joined Project ATX6 which brought them to a wider audience of sister cities in Germany, France, Canada, and Japan as well as showcasing at SXSW 2018.
Their first record, a collection of original songs and reinterpreted traditional ballads, was released in December 2017. In May 2019 they will be releasing their second album titled 'Io' recorded in August at Ramble Creek Studios. More can be found at www.supersecretrecords.com.
