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.

WHAT THEIR SAYING. . .

…an ensemble perfectly balanced between brilliantly composed precision and equally brilliant spontaneity. Jon Weisberger, The Nashville Scene
…The New Hip features some deft singer-songwriter vocal change-ups, as well as musically witty instrumentals that cross over into what could just as well be labeled progressive jazz.   - - Wall Street Journal
Raines continues to reach far beyond the confines of bluegrass with her inventiveness…Her roots remain distinctively bluegrass, while her originals and arrangements reflect her eclectic taste. - - Strings Magazine
With a string of high profile gigs and seven bluegrass Bassist of the Year awards behind her—Raines offers her solo debut, Inside Out. The CD showcases the range of Missy’s talent, as she leads her quintet of young acoustic aces through bluegrass, newgrass, pop, and jazz terrains with solid yet inventive support, fluid solos, and engaging vocals. - - Bass Player Magazine
“MerleFest Bands To Watch” Missy Raines and the New Hip are another much-buzzed-about band on the scene these days. Pulling from contemporary country, jazz, bluegrass, and their own imaginations, their music is smooth and sweet. - - About.com
She’s been named the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Bass Player of the Year a record seven times, but Missy Raines never lets displays of instrumental virtuosity get in the way of a good song or a swinging groove on her first album with nimble new backing group The New Hip.Inside Out rests comfortably at the sweet spot where bluegrass and jazz meet - - Chris Neal, Country Weekly
