On August 18th of this year the good people at Compass Records will be making her new album Royal Traveller Available to us! And just recently they announced her new video for the song called “Swept Away”, which debuted on one of my favorite Bluegrass websites called “Bluegrass Situation. You can pre order this album HERE.
We haven’t had any new material recorded by Miss Missy since 2013’s New Frontier, so this new album comes with much anticipation and I for one am eager to hear more of what she has for us. This new song has a really nice sound to it here, and the harmonies are simply heavenly. And in case it was unaware to you Miss Allison Brown was one of the founders of Compass Records, so it’s almost a guarantee to be released on that label.
I have honestly been following this new wave of young ladies that are on the influx of Bluegrass right now, purists dislike them and the new Bluegrass fans love their distinctly different sound. The famous three part harmony structure is missing here, ergo the purists dislike it.
I will have several opportunities to catch up with this young lady in the next few months leading up to my year end TOP 50 list, so let’s see if she can land a spot on my TOP 50 in 2018? Time will tell!
