The Mirror Reveals

The band's initial incarnation sprang as a side project for Middle Pillar Presents co-founder Babbo in 1999. For the label's premiere release, the What is Eternal compilation, he created an ethereal track under the name The Mirror Reveals. Due to positive reaction, The Mirror Reveals have blossomed into a fully realized group.

Kit Messick, a performer since she was 13, sings in the NYC cabaret circuit interpreting Gershwin and Cole Porter for a new generation. From 1997-1999, Kit sang for the New York band Unto Ashes whose first recorded appearance was the aforementioned What Is Eternal compilation. Over the course of 1999, Kit and Babbo worked on the debut full-length album "Frames of Teknicolor", released in spring of 2000.

Joanna Dalin, a classical trained violinist, joined the band in mid-2000. An ex-member of the World Serpent band Backworld, she has also appeared on albums for Lydia Lunch, Dream into Dust and others.

Various performers have been part of The Mirror Reveals over the years. Alexandra Phillips sang lead on the first TMR track "Let All the Poets Sing" on the Middle Pillar comp What is Eternal. Mark Steiner (Piker Ryan, Kundera, The Broken Men) sang lead vocals on "The Undying Man" off of Frames of Teknicolor and "Moon's On Fire" off of This Infinite Eye. He and Kristin Fayne-Mulroy have played bass guitar at TMR performances. Kevin Dunn (Kobe, Loretta's Doll) and Paul Ash (ex-Unto Ashes) have played drums.

The Mirror Reveals consists of vocalist Kit Messick (ex-Unto Ashes), violinist Joanna Dalin (ex-Backworld) and guitarist/songwriter Babbo.
