To celebrate the release of the “SUNHEAD” EP, PLINI will embark on a North American headlining tour, with support from fellow progressive music luminaries MESTIS (solo project of Javier Reyes from ANIMALS AS LEADERS) and genre-bending keyboardist DAVE MACKAY. With the addition of Dave’s keyboard wizardry on select cuts, PLINI and co. will return to the USA and Canada to treat crowds to an evening of progressive music, including the “SUNHEAD” EP in full, old favourites and a high likelihood impromptu jams.

Before each show, you can also attend a one-hour long Masterclass and Q&A session with Plini + Javier Reyes, tailored to the interests of the group and covering anything from composition & guitar techniques to touring & building a career as an independent musician. Tickets available via


Mestís is world renowned guitarist Javier Reyes (Animals As Leaders) – The new full length album, Polysemy, is a ten track offering showcasing Reyes’ vast musical diversity and features an intriguing variety of instrumentation and assistance by highly acclaimed musicians (Matt Garstka also of Animals As Leaders, Joe Lester of Intronaut, and Mario Camarena and Erick Hansel of CHON) The album was released on Nov 6th through Sumerian Records.

Reyes states: “I’ve always wanted to create a style of music that focused on being emotionally exploitive and technically sound, yet simple enough for the average music listener to appreciate. Another influence was using the eight-string guitar in a form that is unconventional to the ‘trends’ or independent of characteristics that are found in music styles/genres that have popularized it. Another and important reason was to create a true form of my own independent voice as an artist. To create music that expressed my personality, upbringing, emotions and musical taste.”



Dave Mackay is a British alternative rock singer/songwriter and pianist based in New York City. Inspired by the sincere, emotive lyrics of Sting and Jeff Buckley, and the larger-than-life, gritty sonics of MuteMath and Muse, his music is the meeting point of two contrasting worlds: the intimate and epic.

A deeply personal lyricist, Mackay’s writing style forges a powerful connection between creator and audience. Listeners are encouraged to reflect, to question and to be more sincere with themselves. All this, while simultaneously digesting a huge musical landscape, characterised by Mackay’s rich, dynamic production style and appetite for overdriven keyboard sounds. Bursting with rhythmic energy, these soundscapes are layered with soaring lead vocals, delicate piano lines and shimmering guitars; moments of serenity in an otherwise dramatic world.
