“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.’”

“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

Jeff Autry grew up playing bluegrass in a musical family, and by his teenage years, he was performing with local bluegrass bands and touring the Southeast festival circuits. Autry recorded on Vestal’s new acoustic solo project, In Pursuit of Happiness, and joined Vestal on a 6-month tour of Japan. Upon returning to the US, Autry played with various touring bluegrass bands and became a prolific studio artist. His work is heard on the Pinecastle Instrumental series “Bluegrass 96-01," his solo recording ”Foothills”, Drew Emmetts' (of Left Over Salmon) Freedom Ride, and the last five releases by the John Cowan Band.

Shad’s intricate and soulful style of playing has been compiled over the years from many of his early influences. The playing of such legendary fiddlers as Vassar Clements, Sam Bush, Art Stamper, Mark O’Connor, Kenny Baker and Byron Berline helped develop Shad’s playing throughout the earliest part of his musical career. Shad Cobb’s present-day virtuosity puts him at the forefront of top fiddlers in the country. Whether on one of his recordings, or in a live setting, the playing of Shad Cobb is quite an amazing thing to witness.
