About Talking Dreads

Mystic Bowie, the charismatic Jamaican front man of the Tom Tom Club, has taken Talking Heads' music, turned it into joyous reggae and infectious ska, and electrified audiences across the country. From "Psycho Killer" to "Heaven" to "Life During Wartime," you'll hear New Wave in a new way.

"Talking Dreads is much more than a cover band," Mystic says. "I am very much drawing on my own musical culture and history to make these amazing songs my own, while at the same time preserving the integrity of the Talking Heads songs."

In 1996, Mystic joined the legendary Tom Tom Club ("Genius of Love"), created by ex-Talking Heads Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz. He debuted Talking Dreads in 2015 and got instant approval from Tina and Chris.

With a new album and a relentless touring schedule, Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads is only getting started. They are a great band for festivals and clubs, so contact us for booking information today.

 

"Talking Dreads cover Talking Heads songs as shimmering reggae jewels.”
