Missy Raines & the New Hip w/ the Stellanovas
Missy Raines & the New Hip - Based out of Nashville, TN, Missy Rainesis considered to be one of the most respected, popular, and trailblazing figures in bluegrass today. A seven-time winner of the IBMA Bass player of the year award, she has backed greats such as Claire Lynch, Mac Weisman, Kenny Baker, and Peter Rowan. Raines now leads her own innovative and genre-bending band, The New Hip, which is a rich, jazz-tinged combination of her bluegrass roots and thick Americana. With a smoky and seductive alto, Missy Raines, heads up this quartet featuring mandolin, guitars, bass, and percussion. The territory The New Hip covers is broad and the compass is set by Raines, planted center stage, directing with her bass every bit as much as she's playing it. Missy Raines and the New Hip are currently working on their 3rd album for Compass Records, slated to be released in late 2017, produced by Allison Brown, where the sounds are lush, the groove is thick, and the songs memorable.
Chris and Mary, of the Stellanovas, are trained, classical instrumentalists that were drawn toward the creativity and spontaneity of jazz improvisation. Both with wonderful singing voices (Mary's voice is drop-dead gorgeous,) they do a variety of music that is soft and sweet in one moment, and the next it's a driving and dynamic force that will knock you out!
