Mile Twelve is a fresh, hard driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass with their infectious groove and intricate melodies. Fast gaining recognition for their outstanding performances in New England bluegrass and folk circles, Evan Murphy, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, Nate Sabat and BB Bowness create captivating songs and daring instrumental pieces from diverse influences.
Since their formation in the fall of 2014, Mile Twelve has released their debut 6-track EP, performed extensively throughout New England including several major festivals; Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Ossipee Valley Music Festival, Baygrass Bluegrass Festival, Sooke River Bluegrass Festival and Campbell Bay Music Festival. A track from their debut EP was featured on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction's "Hand Picked with Del McCoury" and another track was featured on Spotify's "Fresh Bluegrass" 2015 playlist. Mile Twelve were selected as formal showcase artists at the 2015 North East Folk Alliance and finalists at the 2015 Freshgrass Band Contest. Banjo luminary Tony Trishcka says, "Mile Twelve is carrying the bluegrass tradition forward with creativity and integrity."
"Mile Twelve's instrumental skills reflect natural abilities enhanced by serious study of bluegrass tradition and a fearless desire to create fresh pathways. From the opening number of their new EP, it's plain that their vocal skills are equal to their picking prowess. Their trio blend is as tight as it gets. Their duo and solo singing is equally praiseworthy. The arrangements often surprise with subtle twists and turns... delicious false endings, dropped beats, arco bass and fiddle duets, and on and on. Mile Twelve is carrying the tradition forward with creativity and integrity." - Tony Trischka
"Mile Twelve has Bluegrass' best interests at heart. Really good songs that mean something, picking that makes you grin and twitch, plenty of scalp-zinging moments... what more could you ask for America's best drivin' music? I'd be fine sending this to aliens." - Darol Anger
