About

Misty River are an Americana band based in London with roots in the west coast of Ireland and the US. Their upcoming releases (early 2020) were recorded with six-time Grammy award winner Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Seasick Steve, Elle King, Jack White, The Arctic Monkeys). They combine sweet harmony vocals intertwined with dobro & electric guitar. With their song-writing firmly rooted in classic alt-country, roots and blues, Misty River are perfectly placed at the very forefront of the explosion and interest in all things Americana that is happening in the UK right now. Misty River is the brainchild of duo, Carmen Phelan and Adam Morley, who both have a long and involved history with the music industry. Having previously recorded and toured with artists like The Kooks, Andrea Corr and Sinead O’Connor and Carmen has now followed her passion for writing and performing her own songs. One of her songs, the wonderfully ephemeral ‘Take This Dance’, found its way into the hands of film director, Matt Kirkby, who included it in his Oscar winning short film, ‘The Phone Call’, starring Sally Hawkins and Jim Broadbent. Adam Morley has had a long and fecund history with the music industry as a dobro player, songwriter, producer and studio owner working with artists such as Jade Bird, Ferris & Sylvester, Isaac Gracie and Clara Bond.

OK. Until this thing is over we’ve all got to be helpful, friendly and kind to each other, understood? Hatchets buried. Grievances forgotten. Disputes resolved. Feuds ended. Strangers smiled at. When the final whistle is blown we can go back to be being mean and beastly. Agreed?

Yep, Super happy to have been invited to play The Ramblin' Roots Revue on the Americana Music Association UK stage 🙌We went along last year and had a great time. So looking forward to seeing some friendly faces this time round! X
