The smoky and seductive alto, 7-Time IBMA Bass Player of the Year, Missy Raines, fronts this all-acoustic ensemble. Raines is always planted right in the center of the stage, directing with her bass just as much as she’s playing it.
“One of the most decorated and highly sought-after upright bassists in bluegrass music” – NPR
“…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
“Hearing accomplished musicians in one genre seamlessly shift into another makes my heart happy because I love a range of music: from jazz to Americana, to pop and R&B. For this reason and more, Missy Raines and the New Hip make my heart swoon” – No Depression
