      What was your favorite part of the performance? - My favorite part was when we got to see the sound engineer's head stick up from the bottom of the screen as he adjusted the sound/video stuff.

Missy Raines & The New Hip
"New Frontier" on Compass Records released Aug 27, 2013

"A seductive amalgam of folk, country, bluegrass, and rock, recalling the earliest platters by Lucinda Williams and Rosanne Cash." —Icon Magazine

“Raines is not only a superb bassist but also an excellent singer, with a matter-of-fact, low-key delivery that’s sometimes hushed, sometimes seductive, sometimes channeling a simmering unease.”
-New York Music Daily

"Raines's voice really sets the album apart, keeping the feel at times fierce and almost aggressive and then dialing down to a much more vulnerable contemplative place.  The juxtaposition of pop orchestration, lo-fi guitars and mandolins make for an incredibly interesting, layered sound.
-Deep South Magazine

"In an album that is at once layered in lush sounds and whispering in spare, haunting cries of passion, seven-time IBMA bass player of the year Missy Raines launches her well-tended craft off the bluegrass dock into the waters of jazz and folk, holding onto the anchor of bluegrass while pushing steadily at the boundaries of the music that engulfs her." -Country Standard Time

Music is immediate. A few seconds in and you know whether you like a band or not. Missy Raines & The New Hip hits the downbeat. The riff and rhythm of electric guitar and the kick of acoustic bass and drums carry you across the first few changes. Then Missy’s clear, intimate voice tells the story. You lean in and listen.

They don’t manipulate you—they move you. This is a band that trusts the simple, basic things that create a conversation between the listener and the band: rhythm, tone, space, and great new songs. You bring your desire for something real. They bring the music.

But real and simple are not real simple. These players have honed their art. Although they are a new (and yes, hip) band, what comes through is their love and mastery of jazz, fusion, blues, Americana, and bluegrass.

They know what these styles have in common: the magic of music made fresh with each performance. The band explores old sounds and creates something new—a dialog of acoustic and electric, of drive and groove, of what is and what if.

When they play, you feel it—immediately.
