In just two years after graduating from the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, Talay has already begun making waves on the New York music scene. Sought after as a session player on guitar, bass, and backing vocals, she has toured both locally and nationally, supporting numerous New York based artists as well as the all female Guns N’ Roses tribute act, Guns N’ Hoses. This session work helped finance her debut EP Piece by Piece, which has been called “a return to meaningful, introspective songwriting…with memorable melody lines, tight harmonies, and passionate, powerful vocals” by radio host Bruce Figler at New York’s 107.1 The Peak.
Talay is currently gearing up for her next release of punchy power-pop that draws comparisons to 90’s favorites like No Doubt, Blink 182, and Weezer. Her songs engage audiences with lyrics that are equally clever, emotionally vulnerable, and even biting at times. Talay has also won praise for her lead guitar work, stretching out into wah-inflected, blues-influenced solos over the band’s tight rhythm section.
Born in Tokyo, Mishti overcame her fear of flying and Asians going on to live in Hong Kong and India and finally settling in the humble hamlet of Chappaqua where she worked at an independent bookstore throughout high school and college serving thousands of satisfied customers while managing to read a total of 3 books and refining the art of the run-on sentence.
After studying Yiddish and Neuropharmacology (not in the same class), she mastered the ABCDs of melanoma detection during her day job helping cure cancer while spending nights gigging all throughout Westchester as a rock singer-songwriter/

Meet AMB! Their driving and energizing sound, which combines a gutsy rock attitude with great pop sensibility and a hint of the blues, is reminiscent of some of rock’s greatest female icons.
