Mile Twelve, one of the most exciting young bands in acoustic music and bluegrass, is in the midst of a world tour supporting a new album produced by Bryan Sutton. Some of you will recognize the very talented mandolinist, David Benedict, who last played Barking Legs as a member of Missy Raines New Hip.
Mile Twelve is a five-piece acoustic group combining a traditional bluegrass aesthetic with progressive songwriting and arranging. Since forming in the fall of 2014, they’ve performed throughout the U.S., Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan including sets at major festivals such as Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, FreshGrass Festival, Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, and Joe Val Bluegrass Festival. They were awarded the 2017 Band Momentum Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association and released their debut full-length album, Onwards, produced by Stephen Mougin. Additionally, Mile Twelve was honored to have been nominated for the IBMA 2018 Emerging Artist of the Year.
Although their sound is rooted in traditional bluegrass, Mile Twelve surveys a broader landscape on their newest album, City on a Hill. All five band members bring their own influences and observations into the music, resulting in a project that feels contemporary, thoughtfully crafted, and relevant. Produced by Bryan Sutton and engineered by Ben Surratt, City on a Hill follows significant recognition from the bluegrass community, including three IBMA Momentum Awards.
