My New Favorites

The winds that blow through our southern mountains carry echoes of the past. But if your ear is truly tuned, you'll also hear that they bring fresh and exciting things, too. So it is with the music of My New Favorites. Award-winning songwriting and top-notch players team up to create an incredibly diverse and energetic Americana sound. Their compelling songs showcase fine harmony singing and are complimented by a mix of traditional and modern instruments to create music that is both familiar and brand new.

My New Favorites has deep roots in traditional music, but their branches spread across many musical styles. Individually, they play bluegrass, old-time, blues, rock & roll, Celtic, Cajun and classical. Together, they have created a harmonic union of musical genres that draws inspiration from many sources...but never strays too far from the hills we call home.
