about
Coming Out of Darkness is the debut album by the Social Mystics. A band comprised of professional musicians and members of Creative Works Studio (CWS) an arts-based occupational therapy program (www.creativeworks-studio.ca). Together they create a very original piece of work. This 15 piece band are proudly and loudly marching to the beat of a different drum, led by singer-songwriter and Creative Lead of CWS Isabel Fryszberg (Isabel and the Uncommons), volunteer co-facilitator and former English teacher, Laraine McMahon-Nelson and producer Don Kerr (Rheostatics, Ron Sexsmith, Communism Band).

Coming Out of Darkness is the result of a decade’s worth of songwriting that has taken place during Wednesday afternoon music sessions at the Creative Works Studio. Members work with facilitators to create lyrics, and Isabel Fryszberg leads the musical composition aspect and plays guitar. Member John Reid also contributes with his great guitar skills. They have written 50 songs together over the years and picked their finest for this 13-track album. Asher Ettinger swings on the keys and colours many of the songs with his soulful arrangements, Toronto's busiest and favorite vocalist Rebecca Campbell helps conducts the vocals, and Alastair Whitehead (Slocan Ramblers) anchors the rootsy sound on upright bass. Imagine gospel-meets-Broadway theatre-meets a flash mob with a bit country and rockn roll and you've got the Social Mystics! Made with the help of the Ontario Arts Council Grant and JP Bickell Foundation.
