My Politic is a Folk/Americana band based in Nashville TN. Kaston Guffey and Nick Pankey grew up together in Ozark MO and started My Politic around the age of 15. Kaston writes character driven story songs and Nick adds sibling-like harmony to create a unique sound that is totally their own. Inspired by artists like John Prine, Woody Guthrie, Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, Patty Griffin Simon & Garfunkel classic country and so much else, My Politic has recorded 9 albums to date and have released 3 of those since moving to Nashville 7 years ago. "Anchor" (2015) "12 Kinds of Lost" (2017) and The band's latest effort, "Short-Sighted People In Power" (released 10/30/2020) is a collection of songs written and recorded between March and August of 2020 hyper-focused on politics & current affairs. Paul Zollo of American Songwriter & Songwriters On Songwriting Said this: "They are inspired, brave and brilliant songs, remarkably comprehensive but never preachy or ponderous. It’s perfect for this American moment. Rendered tenderly with close harmonies throughout, it evoked the sound of Don Henley and Glenn Frey singing Randy Newman songs. It’s subversive, but also soulfully charming." They've also had the pleasure of appearing at Americanafest and multiple times at The Bluebird since moving to Nashville. The duo has been all over the country for years thriving in intimate house concerts settings, listening rooms, dive bars and everywhere in between. My Politic is unique mid-western storytelling in harmony.
