Mya Byrne Transcends the Here & Now on Personal Manifesto 'Rhinestone Tomboy'
Mya Byrne was on a flight from Nashville to LA when it hit her. She'd been bouncing around titles for her new record, her first since 2014's As I Am, for a while but nothing stuck. In a half-asleep state, the words Rhinestone Tomboy struck her like a bolt of lightning. Those two little words encompassed everything she was and is: a rhinestone-studded purveyor of honest-to-goodness songwriting with a venomous bite. Lying somewhere along the "great continuum," as she put it, of gender and identity, Byrne is nothing if not a straight shooter -- so to speak.
