For the person looking for music that moves the emotion and breaks barriers between musical genres Missy Raines and the New Hip push the envelope.
The band is a perfect anachronism in contemporary society because of their strong basis in bluegrass, jazz, and blues and their effortless ability to play current styles. The deep jazzy sound of Missy Raines’ voice glides over the acoustic resonance of her immense bass and string ensemble. Their Swallow Hill session, recorded June 27th 2012, includes backing from Josh Fox, Gerald Walker, and Ethan Ballinger.
