Bluegrass

“It was really about boiling it down to what was most important to me in the world, and then finding the courage to go after it. For me, that journey was not just like ‘finding myself’ because everyone is always trying to do that, but it was really more about uncovering the important things, and then staying with it, and feeling the courage to do something like this,” says Missy Raines of New Frontier, her new album that boldly treads into the worlds of folk and Americana. “Even though it was going to be something very different than folks were
expecting to hear, I had to say ‘This is what I want to do, and I have to do it.’”

Bluegrass, Newgrass, Gospelgrass, Rock N’ Rollgrass…true innovators like John Cowan break boundaries and personify innovation. John’s ability to take audiences on a musical journey through multiple genres has made him one of the most unique vocal artists of his generation.

John Cowan rose to fame when he became the lead singer for New Grass Revival. He and band mates Sam Bush, Bela Fleck and Pat Flynn introduced a new generation of music fans to an explosive, experimental brand of bluegrass…Newgrass! However, after inspiring and entertaining fans for nearly two decades, New Grass Revival disbanded in 1990.
