About

“…the touching vocals of songwriter Carmen Phelan wash over you hauntingly amidst a sea of rich, warm Americana melodies, deftly arranged by producer Adam Morley” Record Of The Day Upcoming UK Americana artist Misty River has confirmed details of new single ‘With You Around’ and debut album ‘Promises’. ‘With You Around’ arrives on August 7, with ‘Promises’ following on October 30. ‘With You Around’ is the follow-up to debut single ‘Take This Dance’, which currently features in the hit Netflix documentary film ‘A Secret Love’, produced by Ryan Murphy (Pose, Glee) and Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Whiplash). ‘With You Around’ was recorded at London’s Eastcote Studios, produced by Adam Morley and completed in Nashville with six-time Grammy winner Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White, Sturgill Simpson). Based in London with roots in the west coast of Ireland and the US, Misty River combines harmonic vocals intertwined with dobro, fiddle and electric guitar alongside song-writing rooted in classic Alt-Country, Roots and Blues. Misty River’s debut single ‘Take This Dance’ was previously used in Mat Kirkby’s Oscar-winning short film ‘The Phone Call’ starring Sally Hawkins and Jim Broadbent, and a recently released new live version, was recorded at Bob Harris’s Under The Apple Tree Studios in Oxfordshire. “There seems to be a real movement towards this authentic, old-fashioned, traditional bedrock of music amongst artists and Misty River are part of that now,” comments Baylen Leonard, Country & Americana DJ on Radio 2/BBC Radio London/Country Hits and curator of The Long Road Festival. “There’s a huge community around Americana, Country and Roots music and though the music that Misty River makes can sit in other genres, it sits comfortably in all those places as well. I absolutely love Iris Dement and there is something, I think, in Carmen's voice that's a bit Iris Dement.” “Take This Dance is a song of love and connection that goes straight to the heart” Your Life In A Song "Take This Dance is a love song with a sweeping, implied narrative that stretches from original romance through to the treasured memories of an entire life together” Chillfiltr “Watch the masterful musicianship on this beautiful song from Misty River” Americana UK “Beautiful songs” For Folks Sake

If you’re upset about regular folk hoarding toilet paper, wait till you hear about how a tiny percentage of rich people have hoarded most of the world’s wealth.

If you don’t love the song Landslide we can still be friends, but realistically probably not best friends. I actually first fell in love with this song when I heard The Chicks sing it but now I pretty much love anyone singing it at anytime, anywhere. Funny then that I fecked up the ending… Oh well, love you #StevieNicks Fleetwood Mac

#Repost @mrrpmurphy • • • • • • They say there's no crying in baseball, but I was emotional from the second I started working with director Chris Bolan and producers Alexa Fogel, Brendan Mason and Jason Blum on "A Secret Love," out tomorrow on NETFLIX. I am so so proud of this work, which examines the 60-year love story of Terry Donahue and Pat Henschel. Terry and Pat are true pioneers and instant icons, and it's an honor to be able to tell their hopeful epic story.
