Living in the music is what I love best. It was great to “get the band back together,” as the guys traveled up to New York to film our first new sessions in nearly two years. Man, it felt good to have the Music Fog crew back together, this time in the Chandelier Room at Midtown Live. Let me tell you a little bit about this new club. The initiative is to book Roots Music of every description there. We will welcome Ronnie Fauss and Anne McCue this week in support of their brand new projects, then next week GRAMMY® Nominee Mike Farris is coming to play. Check the schedule at midtownlive.com, there are lots of supercool folks coming to see us. You should too, if you are around the NYC area and want to hear some great Americana music.
More than anything, Music Fog is excited to bring you some new music. People ask me all the time about how I find bands, and for sure, one of the ways is through trusted sources. In this case, I got turned on to Mipso through Dave Magazine, with whom I used to work. He is down in NOLA now, at House of Blues, and is rocking it down there. Mipso is on a tear of its own, visiting 26 states in the first two months of 2015. The North Carolina renegade traditionalist quartet has been together since 2010. Jacob Sharp, Wood Robinson, Joseph Terrell, and Libby Rodenbough bring close harmonies and effortless music. We sure do hope you enjoy this song, which was on their 2013 release Dark Holler Pop. Now here’s the Music Fog recording of “Tried Too Hard.” We’re back!
