Mary's mug Mary (bass/voice)  is an animal rights advocate and started getting serious about music in early junior high school, where she played flute in the Brooklyn Borough Band. Shortly after performing with the group at Carnegie Hall, she was inspired by U2 to take up the electric guitar, which she played for several years before switching to bass. Shortly after she began playing bass, Mary played in a succession of Western New York based bands, including The Waverlys, Brooks Call, Gelfling, and Melt. Eventually she decided to form her own band, and MYLAR was the result.



Mae's mug Mae (guitar)  decided she wanted an electric guitar after learning to bend strings on an acoustic guitar with too high an action. She has had around three months of guitar lessons but is primarily self-taught. Mae is inspired by the music and guitar playing of such guitar heroes whose names have the letter "M", including Mark Mothersbaugh, Mark Knopfler, Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, Tom Morello, and Metallica's Kill 'eM All album. Mae is somewhat the silent type, and it sometimes appears as if she is watching a movie in her head. Her abilities on the guitar are better than her culinary skills.


Adri's mug Adri (drums)  was inspired to start playing drums in early high school after hearing Metallica’s "Ride The Lightning" album.

Adri is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Ethnomusicology. Previous bands that Adri has played in include Pigmobile. She is also an avid fan of sci-fi fantasy books, and also writes stories.
