Cheyenne Marie Mize is an American folk singer-songwriter from Louisville, Kentucky.


Cheyenne Marie Mize's “Before Lately” album was released in 2010 on sonaBLAST! Records as an introspective, meditative affair followed by the “We Don’t Need” EP in 2011 featuring more dynamic moods and experimentation. Cheyenne Marie Mize’s music has been described by the New York Times as “tough, dreamy, cloudy-sky country and chamber pop,” with a “rare voice, sweet without being cloying, and weary without hopelessness.”[1] NPR described Mize in All Songs Considered as “lovely -- very much in that Sharon Van Etten, smoky, pretty folk realm. It was just beautiful.”[2]

Mize is also associated with acts Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore in the Dear Companion tour for their collaborative Sub Pop release in early 2010. Subsequently they performed at Austin’s South By Southwest festival where Cheyenne Marie Mize was chosen as one of NPR’s 10 “Discoveries at SXSW 2011”. Mize also collaborated with Bonnie Prince Billy in a 10” release “Among the Gold” which featured takes on a variety of late 19th century American parlor songs.[3]
