Mipso
Mipso
Critically acclaimed Indie Americana band Mipso continue expanding their sonic resources while doubling down on their experimentation with string band tradition. Dubbed "traditionalist renegades," Mipso's music is influenced by the contradiction of their progressive home of Chapel Hill, North Carolina and the surrounding rural southern landscapes.

For their forthcoming 2017 album release, the quartet invite in pedal steel, drums, banjo and keyboards – bringing Mipso's sharp lyrics, intricate song arrangements and distinctive and stirring sound into full bloom. Produced by Bon Iver bassist Brad Cook, Mipso's deft storytelling and smart pop melodies are vivid and rich on the band's third release. The album's 11 songs, all originals, seamlessly coalesce into a modern Americana classic.

Mipso's third album release follows up 2015's Old Time Reverie. Old Time Reverie shot up the Billboard charts, where it landed at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and in the Top 25 of the Billboard Heatseakers Chart. With songwriting hailed as "smartly written, hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular." (Acoustic Guitar), the album was named among the "Best Records of the Year" by The Guardian - for the band's "aptitude for stunning harmonies" and for its "lush and moving songs."

Look for Mipso touring with expanded instrumentation in spring/summer 2017 in support of their new album release.

Mipso is: Jacob Sharp (mandolin, vocals), Wood Robinson (bass, vocals), Joseph Terrell (guitar, vocals), Libby Rodenbough (fiddle, vocals)
Tyler Childers
Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky is a little town called, Paintsville, where the economy is dependent on the dying coal industry and a tradition of music thrives with the US 23 Country Music Highway Museum and Butcher Hollow. Carrying on the music tradition is native son and current Lexington, Kentucky resident, Tyler Childers.

Paintsville is located in the Big Sandy River Valley of Johnson County in Eastern Kentucky made famous for its lawlessness, religion, and booze, and a song about a horse thief, a rambling man, and an attempt to gain some good ol' Appalachian self-justice is what "William Hill" is all about. Following his "Papaw" around to the Kentucky social institutions – church events and barber shops to name a few– as well as a lot of coon hunting with his dad, Tyler has heard a tale or two about the misadventures of a few good ol' boys and he gives his own spin of these accounts behind a whisky-soaked voice well beyond his age of 22.
