Artists summary:

With a smokey and seductive alto, 7 Time IBMA Bass Player of the Year, Missy Raines, heads up this quartet with cool grooves, both layered and lush. Accompanied by Ethan Ballinger, Jarrod Walker and Cody Martin on electric guitar, mandolin, and drums, respectively, The New Hip launches off the bluegrass dock and into the waters of Americana and jazz with a distinct indie-dreampop flavour. New Frontier, their latest album on Compass Records, features Raines' vocals throughout and has lauded her comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Rosanne Cash.
Raines' bluegrass roots are long-reaching with touring and recording stints for 1st generation legends such as Eddie Adcock, Mac Wiseman, Jesse McReynolds, Josh Graves and Kenny Baker. A former member of the Claire Lynch Band, The Brother Boys, and one half of the acoustic super duo, Jim Hurst and Missy Raines, Missy is one of the most respected and popular figures within the bluegrass community.

"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

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

"In an album that is at once layered in lush sounds and whispering in spare, haunting cries of passion..." -Country Standard Time
